Success Adversity and momondays, a strange title for a blog post – or is it? I am an enthusiastic supporter of momondays. Since discovering momondays, I have spoken at 3 different venues, plan to speak at more. I regularly get to the Kitchener event at…

The resourcefulness of people in the United Kingdom was one of the things that made an impression on me during our recent holiday. A visit to Foxton Locks in Leicestershire where for 200 years, passenger and cargo barges have been raised 75 ft up a hill…

Disruption can cause adversity. It is not only the major events, death, illness, accident, financial problems. It can be small incremental challenges.

The people of Britain voted to assert their independence and leave the EU. People don't like being told what they can do by bureaucrats in distant offices.

Mind control belongs to the world of science fiction, or does it? Is it only a figment of the imagination of creative authors like Ray Bradbury? Or is it a real phenomenon, one used increasingly by politicians, social activists and liberals. A propaganda…

More debate on the Woodstock School walk out, means, ends, discipline and consequences. Should there be consequences for students walking out of school?

How a person walks into a room can tell a lot about overcoming adversity. In times of adversity, the way we move through space can affect our confidence.

12 Years ago, I broke my arm, and crushed my hand and foot when my horse slipped playing polo and fell on me. Because this happened in Africa, I just got patched up and put in plaster at the local hospital. The breaks did not heal correctly. Both hand and foot look quite deformed with bumps in the wrong places. The wrist and hand ache badly when I use them too much, if I bump them and in cold weather. A few months ago, I damaged the wrist and hand - on a different horse. It was so painful, I thought I had broken a bone. Xrays showed no breaks and the doctors suggested painkillers which I try to avoid taking. After talking to Guy I started using RTPR twice a day, I could feel an improvement within a few hours and a big improvement by the next day. I applied RTPR twice a day for a week, it made my arm, wrist and hand much more comfortable. So much so that I am pain free most of the time except when I abuse it handling horses or heavy tools. Now I use it whenever I need to for a day or two and immediately feel the benefits. Lastly, I need to mention that I have worked with Guy on another project and endorse previous comments that he is an excellent team leader. He goes the extra mile for people in his team and is always ready to help others even if there is no benefit to him. A big thank you to Guy for introducing me to RTPR and being an all round good man to know.
