How would our lives change if we set our goals based on what would actually fulfill us, instead of what feels easy or achievable?

Lillian Ahenkan's hypothesis- anyone can create a unique formula for their own personal success. The one-size-fits-all approach to your best life is outdated - you can do better.

You don't have to be exceptional (or even the exception) to be successful. You just need to learn the algorithm. Through her own success experiment, Lillian transformed herself from a two-time uni drop-out stuck in a career that paid in burnout, into a highly sought-after media personality FlexMami. And here she shows that her experience hasn't been a fluke. Instead of focusing on what you can't change, spend your time hacking what you can - yourself. This formula combines what you know about yourself with what you know about society. The result? Getting what you really want.
