Ep111: The Problem with Give and Take in Relationships

The need for “give and take” is often emphasized in building healthy relationships.

I have a problem with that approach and offer a better one in this episode.



Here are links to the episodes on Personal Boundaries that I mentioned:

Donna Doyon - Reframe Your Mindset

Ep110: Reframing Your Mindset

Part 3 of a 3-part series on Mindset.

Part 3 offers a few ways to “reframe” your fixed mindset to one of growth. Reframing simply means looking at a situation from a different perspective.

It’s like looking at a painting or photograph hanging on someone’s wall. You saw it, but it didn’t grab your attention. The next time you visited you were drawn to this same image. You asked your friend what was different about it.

“Oh, I didn’t like the frame it was in,” she replied. “So I bought a new one. It makes all the difference, doesn’t it?”

You can do the same thing when looking at your circumstances, relationships, and opportunities. If you don’t like what you are seeing, you can change the frame.

I’d love to know your thoughts. Leave a comment below or join my Facebook group, Start Today and Continue Tomorrow.

Ep106: Experience the Power of Non-Negotiables in Your Life and Business

Making and taking time for the activities and relationships that are most important to you is key to your health and happiness. Too often we let less important activities consume our time or we spend too much time making things perfect when “good enough” will do.

Continuing somewhat with the theme of “healthy boundaries,” this week I share thoughts on identifying activities as “non-negotiable,” to ensure that they get the proper attention that they deserve.

Ep105: The Risks and Benefits of Setting Healthy Boundaries

Last week, I talked about what personal boundaries are, why we need them, and how to know when your boundaries are being threatened or violated.

This week, in Part 2, I talk about the risks and benefits of enforcing your personal boundaries. Because let’s face it… there is a price.

If there wasn’t, it wouldn’t be a problem.

So your challenge is deciding which, if any, boundaries you are willing to defend and what you can expect when you do!

Hint: It can be magical! 🙂



Show Notes:

This podcast series was inspired by life experience and the book, Boundaries: When to say yes, how to say no, to take control of your life by Drs Henry Cloud and John Townsend. From the Boundaries Books website, you can download the 10 Laws of Boundaries for free AND/OR take their free quiz to determine if you have boundary issues.

In January we will be further exploring the topic of boundaries in my membership program Walk with Me.
