The Five Roads to Meet Yourself
(a.k.a. How Dr. Buscaglia Changed My Life)

The Five Roads to Meet Yourself
by Ivan H. Meyer, Ph.D.

1. Don't compete with people.

2. Develop a mental success of yourself.

3. I am an original person.

4. Always respect people.

5. Finally enjoy life and remain human.

I hope some of you now understand why Dr Buscaglia is such a global teacher. The purpose of
training and teaching is to change behaviour. Dr Buscaglia can sleep well tonight because he has changed my behaviour.

Goodnight Papa!

Bye Dr Leo, a loved professor, a scholarly academic, a psycologist for the nation, a lecturer to the global university students, our mentor, and our dear father. The people of the African Continent will remember you because of your warmness, your kindness- a true reflection of the Ubuntu spirit.

Living, Loving and Learning
