The best podcast online that deals with how to turn adversities into a propelling force that could pilot you into tons of successful outcomes in your life. From the various guest, I have truly seen that adversities in any form are not limitations unless you let them be. Doug has done quite well in bringing guests to deal with other life's issues like health, entrepreneurship, entertainment, motherhood etc. This is a complete podcast and I always look forward to it every week.
