Hi, my name is Ray, this page is about me and why I wanted to create this
website. Actually the whole website reflects who I am, my beliefs and opinions.
As you can see from the picture, I have been around the block a few times, the
wrinkles and grey hair have been well earned. Please don't judge this nut by its
shell, the outside may look a little worn but the inside is still full of fun
and raring to go.
A little background. I was born and raised in
England but I now live in Canada's beautiful Atlantic provinces. When I was 17 I
decided to leave home and see some of the world, I love to travel. So far my
travels have taken me through all of the British Isles, parts of Europe and all
of North America. So I am well experienced in western culture, I still plan to
visit South America, Asia and do a walkabout in Australia.
hobbies and interests include various arts and crafts, music, literature and
just having fun. But my main interest is people, who they are, how they live. In
my travels I have met and enjoyed the company of people from all walks of life,
different ethnic origins and beliefs. I have had coffee with millionaires and
shared a bottle of wine with street people. All of them were fascinating, each
had their own stories to tell. I really love people they are so interesting.
This website is built around what I have learned from people. I do not have any
university degrees or letters after my name, the information comes from the
university of life and it does not give out diplomas. I have tried to include
practical information and advice to help you succeed.
Is there a
difference between successful and unsuccessful people? Most definitely, I have
found that success starts from the inside, it is attitude, interest and a
passion to really live life. Successful people give out to life as much, usually
more, than they take. At first glance this seems backwards but if you look
around you will see that it is the person who wants things given to them that
fail. Successful people empower others, the power they get back is not taken it
is received. Whether it is power, love, respect or anything else you desire you
must first give it.
This website is one of my ways to try to give
back something for all the wonderful experiences that life has given me. I hope
you enjoy it and find it useful to you.
