=+LEFT(O3,FIND(" ",O3)-1)   Will give you the first word
=+MID(O3,FIND(" ",O3)+1,LEN(O3))    Will give you the remaining text

Keep repeating the formulae until you have separated each word

Came up with better formulae:

=TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(O3," ",REPT(" ",30)),30*(XXX-COLUMN(O3))+1,30))

Substitue XXX for whichever word you are after

eg. if you want the third word use:
=TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(O3," ",REPT(" ",30)),30*(3-COLUMN(O3))+1,30))
