No matter, what you do, it's always important to set yourself goals and/or milestones that you want to reach, whether it be 10, 100, 1000, 10000 subscribers and so on or maybe you don't care about subscribers and your goal is to have fun, that's equally important because having fun doing something you love will in due course help you to continue to do what you love and will help you grow.
Over the years I've hit a few milestones - 1k subs, 6k Subscribers, Getting partnered on youtube are just a few of them but in recent years, my channel has fallen in popularity daily views and subscribers so I didn't really have any more goals/milestones realistically set for myself until recently I saw a milestone that I managed to reach without even noticing.
Recently, without realising, my channel managed to get to 1.5 Million total views. Seeing that made me so happy, made me realise that even though I barely get any daily views in comparison to what I used to be able to get, there is still fun and joy to be had along the way.
The moral of the story really is, never give up. If you have a passion for something, work hard at it and eventually the hard work will pay off but also be realistic with your expectations, you won't explode overnight and become an internet sensation, it takes time (sometimes a lot of time) but in the end, the experience will be rewarding even if it doesn't work out.
