My Journey to a Great Month

Yes I know, I know. You missed me last week. I must admit. I miss my blog too (am I narcissist?). Jim, here I am. I cannot afford another reminder from you. I know you were thinking about how you were going to punish me if I didn't post my blog this week.

For many years, great things have happened to me in the month of August. It is then safe to say that I am expecting great things this upcoming month. I don't know what it will be this time, but the expectation is so high. By far, the month of August has been the best month of my life so far. And if nothing special happens, at least I will celebrate a few days. August 6 is our wedding anniversary, August 7 is my wife birthday, August 8 is my eleventh year in Canada and five years as a Canadian citizen, August 15 is my birthday and my younger brother is getting married on August 30. How about that!?

The month of July has been a great month as well. It's been a very busy month but I cannot complain at all. I did a few presentations here and there, a lot of meetings and a lot of great surprises. How about this testimonial from a lady who attended my presentation last week: Check this out:

"Before the seminar, I did not know what to expect.  I thought that probably the information presented would be whatever I can find on the internet about productivity.  Boy I was wrong.  Not only was your presentation entertaining, but also it was inspirational.  Your passion was very infectious, the only reason you can deliver the speech without your Powerpoint is because you were powered by passion and purpose.  Everything you talked came straight from your heart.  You do not need to memorize the speech, the message just flows.  

I was impressed by your courage to pursue your dream.  I would never be able to do what you did, worked free just because you loved the work even when you were broke.

In comparison to you, I am at a much better situation...... 

So thank you for giving inspiration to keep walking on my journey and enjoy it along the way."

I won't share with you the entire message she sent me for confidential reasons, but I must tell you, her message was worth every struggle I went through. I now understand that everything we go through is for us to share with others once we are on the other side. As I heard someone say, there is no testimony without tests.

I am glad I was able to inspire my audience, my hope is to do more of these presentations.

Moral of the story? Do you want to get inspired? Just send me your gift on my birthday on August 15, and your will get a great message on your e-mail

Always a pleasure

The Journeyman.
