Our modern world often encourages us to pursue fame, fortune, and looks, but we know that one of the biggest pitfalls of chasing illusions of success comes at the cost of not knowing our true purpose and not living to our fullest potential. While the journey can seem daunting, and there is no straightforward guidebook to tell us if we are on the right track, there are key foundational pieces and impediments that are known to help or hinder the journey to living to our fullest potential and showing up as our best selves.

Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Brian Johnson, an expert on activating the hero within all of us.
