Have you ever taken a good look at how the people you surround yourself with impact the way you think, what you believe, and how you feel? These people are either helping you live up to your potential or holding you back. If you aren't progressing like you want, take an inventory of who you spend the most time with. http://donnadoyon.com/137 The music for this podcast is Drifting Upstream by Hyson.

Let's have some fun this week taking a look at our own personality type and then looking at the characteristics of our opposites. The goal is to experience life from another person's position. It will be a bit uncomfortable, a bit mind-blowing, and a lot insightful to our own way of doing things. Hint: Our way is not the only way. :-)   http://donnadoyon.com http://donnadoyon.com/walk The music for this podcast is Drifting Upstream... Read more
