Hi good mid week day to hope you feeling the vibe and doing alright. Hehehe sorry I had a dosage of some old school early 90’s music.

Today on the Morning Cruise was Gender Hub Wednesday:

deficient in quantity or quality; lacking fullness or richness; scanty; inadequate: a meager salary; meager fare; a meager harvest.

There’s a area in the Cape called Helderberg. What does Helderberg mean?

Answer: clear water
Helderberg meaning “clear water” is one of the most visually dramatic areas in the Cape, with the Hottentots Holland and Helderberg Mountain ranges creating a powerful backdrop against which the valley descends into vineyards and on to a coastline swept with warm waters and effortlessly white, sandy beaches.

Helderberg includes the towns of Somerset West, Strand, Gordon's Bay, Lwandle, Macassar and Sir Lowry's Pass

The surface of hot water freezes faster than cold water but the rest of the water will remain liquid longer than in a cold sample. Also did you know Since space is essentially empty it cannot carry sound. Therefor there is no sound in space, at least not the sort of sound that we are used to.

How to Gain Respect After a Major Setback

We all have moments where we wish we had done something differently, and sometimes those moments have consequences. However, some of the best blessings or moments of achievement come after failure or disappointment. A setback can be a valuable learning experience. Here are some steps to help you gain respect after a major setback.

Step1 Define the setback. Are all areas of your life affected as a result of the setback, or is the issue related to work, personal or family?

Step2 Accept your responsibility for the setback. People are not perfect, and sometimes we fall short of others' and our own expectations.

Step3 Seek the advise or counsel from a mentor or someone you respect for guidance. Fully disclose the factors that contributed to the setback, and be open to honest feedback.

Step4 Learn from the experience. Once you've accepted your portion of responsibility, analyze what you could have done differently for a better outcome.

Step5 Set goals to improve your situation. Be realistic when identifying goals, so that you are creating a path for success and not one of failure.

Step6 Focus on who you are and what you have to offer. If you've lost a big client, faced embarrassment or even lost employment, take a step back and consider your deepest dreams and desires. Sometimes a setback is a blessing in disguise because it forces you to look at your life in a new way.

Step7 Take baby steps. Small accomplishments will build your confidence and self-esteem. When you carry yourself with pride and confidence, others will respond positively to that message of dignity.

We spoke to James Eckley who joined us from an organization called CASE in Hanover Park men’s group to speak about their Wildspace Camps for men. Where a group of men are sent out into the wilderness to reflect. To find out more about the group contact CASE on 021 691 70 66

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him
