My Journey to Halloween

Today is Halloween. I am really amazed by the creativity of some people in creating their costumes. Some of them are really funny. I just came from an office, and the two receptionists welcomed me in a very professional way. One of them was in a fancy and funny costume, and the other seemed to be "normal". That was until I saw her name tag. Her name tag was her "costume". It was written: Kim Kardashian. I thought it was funny.

It has been a quite interesting week.

 Last Friday I sat down with my friend Emmanuel Lopez a.k.a Motivatorman for our weekly meeting. For about more than a year now, every Friday at 10 O'clock we have a call during which I help him with his goals. It has been two weeks now that we have decided to meet in person instead of our Skype meeting. I think it works better for both of us.

Last week was very special. As I was listening to his accomplishments as well as challenges, something inside of me told me that I should tell him mine as well…

My Journey Back to Normal

Hello there

Do I have to remind you that I know that you missed me? I know you did. Your (very competent) representative, Jim, left me a voicemail in a broken French saying that he really missed my blog. I believed him.

The fact is that I was in bed with a nasty cold. It was really bad. Thank God it's back to normal.

However, even though I was under the weather, I managed to do a few things here and there. One of them was to go and see Diallo, a preacher from Calgary Alberta who was here in Toronto for a few days. I have heard of him, we are even connected on Facebook, but I had never seen him live. He is really something.

He was doing a leadership training, and I am glad I was in the audience. The first thing that impressed me the most about him was that, even though he had some notes, he did countless hours of training without reading any of them. He just spoke from his heart. He droped some good nuggets on us. It was really good stuff.

He told us a story that his grandmother t…

My Journey to Newfoundland

As I am on the street downtown Toronto, my cellphone beeps. It's an email coming. I stop a bit to check what it is about and find out it is from a Speakers' Bureau I have been working with. Then I think: "This is going to be good stuff" 
The first few sentences get me so excited. An organization in Newfoundland is looking for a speaker next week for an event they are having. I almost jump for joy with a high expectation to travel to Newfoundland, until I find out the meeting will be on....Skype! I really don't like technology lol.
Maybe next time!
Yes, the meeting will be on Skype, but I am still excited even though I won't fly to Newfoundland. I get to do what I love to do. That is what is the most important thing.
Anyways...
Today, I received a quote that I thought was full of wisdom. It is from one of my favourite authors and speakers: Wayne Dyer. It goes like this:
"With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat…

My Journey to a Radio Show

I just came from a radio show in which I was a guest. It was an invite from a friend that I met at Rogers Centre last month. He wanted me to share some of my stories. It brought back some great, and not so great memories. Stay tuned. I will let you know when the show will be aired.

Can I tell you a secret? Can you promise to keep it to yourself and not tell anybody?

Ok, here it is. It is in a form of a poem. The author is unknown.

It goes like this:

Broken Toys

As children bring their broken toys,
With tears, for us to mend;
I brought my broken dreams to God
because he was my friend.

But then instead of leaving him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.

At last, I snatched them back and cried,
"How could you be so slow?"
"My child," He said, "What could I do?
You never did let go...."




For years, I have been working so hard, with some successes and some failures (many failures actually lol). I have never fully tried to do…
