What are your metrics for success? Is it page views? The number of followers on Instagram?

If you meet those numbers, will you be happy? It’s easy to imagine that is the case, but that kind of situation is an external validation. What if you are the definition of success just as you are?

Stop your limiting thoughts and find your own drummer to dance to. That’s the theme of today’s FriChats discussion.
