Our own reality

Everyone has their own reality. The concept of a “personal brand” is to let others know who you are because if you don't, others will.

Work towards your own idea of success and don’t let “FOMO” make you feel like a failure because you’re not meeting someone else’s metrics for success.

Measurement bings self-awareness in line with reality.  Once you're aware of what's actually going on, you can make accurate decisions
