My Journey to my second meeting with Bob Proctor

He is the master of the Law of Attraction and that is why he is attracting me in his life (or is it the opposite?). For the second time in two weeks, I had the opportunity to be with Bob Proctor. When he saw me again he jokingly said “This is the second time I have seen you Patrick. Will you finally get it?”

Not only did I meet Bob Proctor, I also met his wife. She is also a successful business woman.

This time I was with Paul my business partner. Of course I introduced Paul to my good friend Bob lol. Man, this guy is a genius. He told us a story about how his housemaid once asked him to buy a lottery ticket. Bob just said to her: “I would rather earn the money”. He went on to say that, in fact, he earned one million dollars just sitting in his kitchen meditating on great ideas when the one million dollar idea came to him. I said to myself "Well, I am going to sit in my kitchen everyday" lol.

Two weeks ago when I met him, I was so much in admiration of him that his message was not my main focus. This time, I felt a deep conviction that I can do what he did and what he continues to do everyday, even when he is asleep. In fact, what he did is so simple that it seems too good to be true. He just followed what Napoleon Hill said in his book “Think and Grow Rich” (Guess what I am reading now? Lol).

After his presentation, I approached him while he was chatting with a group of ladies. I was there just to listen to the wisdom that was coming from his mouth. Let me paraphrase what he said: “There is a law of polarity. This law says that everything has its opposite. So, if you feel you are not successful, there must be an opposite side to that. Take a piece of paper and write down everything that you do not like in your life. Then, on another piece of paper, write the opposite of what you have just written on the first piece of paper. Once you have done that, focus on the positive side by being grateful that it is coming into your life. Read the paper over and over again until you believe it.”

After this conversation he turned to me and started asking me a few questions. He asked me how in the world am I so good looking. Just kidding!!

Actually, he asked me what I do and I told him. I also told him that I wrote a blog about him and that I am about to publish my first book. I mentioned to him that I attended the same professional public speaking training as he did. He looked into my eyes and just said: “Patrick, you are on the right track .” YES SIR! That was exactly what I needed to hear.

I am about to speak to one of his business partners. Who knows what will come up?

Moral of the story? Do you want to meet Bob Proctor twice in two weeks? Me too.

Always a pleasure

My Journey to a Press Conference

What a game 7 for the Raptors!! Kahwi shot was out of this world. I am still in shock. But, let me talk about a game that happened a while back. Game 5. As game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers and our beloved Raptors ended with a huge victory from the local team, we headed down to the press conference location. The media people were lining up in front of the elevator and the length of the line was one of those I had never seen. We had to wait for the elevator to go down and back up at least three times before we could get in. By the time we finally got in the elevator, the TV monitor inside the elevator was showing Serge Ibaka’ s press conference. Shoot, we were running late. We finally got down, and as we were rushing to the conference room, I bumped into Toronto FC soccer superstar Jozy Altidore. He said hi to me and I said hi back. It was surreal. Then, in front of me, I saw this huge guy with tattoos all over his body. I didn’t know who he was, but he caught my

My Journey with Fidèle

It has been quite a few busy weeks that involved a round trip to Ottawa on Saturday and preaching during a Sunday church service (yes, I was surprised too when I was asked to do it). All this time I was thinking about what I would be writing about on this week’s blog. I had a vague idea, but I did not know how to formulate it. That was until I received a message on Facebook from a friend asking me to speak at an upcoming event in January. The topic of my presentation would be “The Moment that Defined Your Life”. The person who sent me the invitation did not know that I had been thinking about the same topic days prior to her message. It all started when I was at a Toronto Raptors game. I have been reporting on the games for almost two months now, but I am still in awe every time I am at the arena. I can’t believe this is happening to me. I have been in rooms with childhood idols, biggest stars of the game, coaches, reporters, you name it. And every time I am saying “wow”. Th

My Journey to the Plan

Our baby is now six months old. Time really flies. It has been a real joy to spend time with her and see her grow daily. I have received a number of positive comments about my last blog. I am glad you liked it. Let go and let God is a principle that I am learning to embrace. I have read about it a number of times, and I thought I was doing it, but I don't think I had totally released control until recently. How did it happen? So many things happened at the same time that led me realize that I had to let it go. One of them is the experience of my good friend Emmanuel Lopez a.k.a Motivatorman. About a year ago, I met Emmanuel just to catch up after my summer in Africa. Emmanuel and I have been friends since 2005, and ever since we made a tradition to meet regularly to talk As we were talking, he shared with me that he was going through one of the toughest moments of his life. From our previous conversations, I knew things were not easy for him, but he al
