I am still so excited! I was being interviewed by Catherine Perrin, the morning show host for Radio Canada (CBC French), 95.1FM, when they surprised me by bringing Janette Bertrand on the phone line, the TV host of “L’Amour Avec un Grand A” who saved my life in 1995 when I nearly committing suicide. They had read my story from my book 'Win the Race of Life' and without my knowledge, in this day of worldwide suicide prevention day, they had created this surprise. I was a little shaken during the interview as this was a very touching moment for me.

The last evening in 1995, lying on my black leather sofa, in a distressful state, miserable with my life, crying with all my heart, I watched TV and stumbled upon this program against suicide. I wanted to put an end to my days and not live any longer, even if I did excel in music, sports, and in my studies at school. I had good parents and a lovely family; however, I had evil in my soul as many of you can relate to.....

With an emptiness inside, the pain of living cannot be explained, especially when one excels at many pursuits. So I felt alone and isolated, but that evening on TV, Ms. Bertrand said to contact at least one person or call the suicide prevention hotline. So I decided to call my mother at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning. I could not go on anymore! She listened to me, with all her heart and soul, without judgment and it saved my life. Now, I created a non-profit foundation and I speak openly to help and inspire others to find purpose and meaning in their lives, with all my lectures and interviews, in schools, organizations, but also in the corporate world even when I talk about business, leadership and success. It can happen to anyone! We should just listen...

This feeling of depression and suicidal tendencies afflicts many people in the world and is not always due to a mental illness. The suicide rate has increased 30% in the United States in 10 years, increasing from 13.2 suicides to 17.9 per 100,000 people. In 2002, in Quebec, the statistic was even higher at 19.1 per 100,000 people. This is completely unacceptable. For me, my big dreams, passions, ideals, traveling, playing the piano, guitar and volleyball, all helped me get through those tough times.

My advice is to: think big, live your life for the better, read, listen to music, meditate, walk in nature, talk to people who will listen to you, find "coaches" and "mentors" to support you, people who you connect with. The only way out is to take one step at a time along with thinking one positive thought at a time. Life can be so beautiful when you open up and are willing to get out of your comfort zone, when one discovers inner power.

 

So it's for these reasons that I share my experiences, all my successes along with my failures, to restore hope, give some tools and strategies to people in this situation. My strategies also work for those who already have some success and feel good inside, helping them to reach the top and achieve greater success, with the adrenaline and the attitude of winners with my unique training events at the racetrack.
