This article is a letter to my future self and your future self. That no matter what you want to do, do it. Don’t regret anything, don’t fear anything, go all out for what you want. Don’t be afraid to be different, fight for what you love, and live a life of freedom and impact.

Well, all these are easier said than done, but together we can do it. Have you worked together with a group or team to achieve something? Yes, from my end, and the feeling is always heavenly. So also, I am here with you all to achieve this.

Pick up your pieces, love without thinking, breathe with thanksgiving, laugh like nobody’s business, and dance like no one is looking at you. Be the best version, fight for yourself, and not against yourself. Be the gem the world is looking for. Move every mountain, and the ones that refuse to move, break them into pieces.

It is time to make a change. Do your things without apologizing to anyone because no matter what you do, the world will complain. Move without others’ validation. The time is now to be the change we are looking for in the world.

Future self, when you look back, no matter what, do not regret anything; rather be grateful for everything, because you are the best thing that ever happened to this world. A changed mindset or change in age might make you wonder what your past self was thinking while making certain decisions. Hence, I am telling you from the past and the present to you, my future self. We all make mistakes, but the best thing about making mistakes is that you get to learn from them, which you have already done. That’s how you can tell the difference between what I did wrong and right. So, it’s up to you to correct the wrongs, and I promise I won’t do bad.

Don’t fight me for my wrongs; instead, love me and my wrongs because I am part of who you’ve become.

I want to say I love you and will continue to love you. Don’t forget to love who we are becoming, so we can leave a new letter for the future-future version of us in the next 10 years. I would love to hear from you about how far we’ve gone. God help and save us until then, and of course, I would be glad to hear from you all and even from myself.

Currently, there are a lot of things I want to change, which I know you would have changed in the future, but I am happy with the ones I was able to figure out and make a change.

Just a quick one, future self, no matter what the world throws at you, turn it into gold. Complain less and take more action. Live without fear because nothing is to be feared but understood. Write and write again because it is a born-spirited gift. You are born for signs and wonders, a rare gem. Go and make an impact, code, join investments, take risks, and take larger risks, even the ones you have both a 70% view and a 0% view on. Fail big and fall bigger, but don’t forget to stand back on your feet. You’ve got this 💯.

How you see yourself is the version of you, not what others say. Only manipulated people don’t change. Continue to strive for change, learn and learn, unlearn and relearn new things, read and read again, and always focus on your business. Invest in yourself, invest in others, build that mansion you have in mind, and have a great love for everyone. Let nothing change your big and pure heart for the things of God. Love purely. Say what you have on your mind, never change because of anyone, and be yourself in every area of your life. YOU CAN DO IT.

Make new friends and let go of those who aren’t helping or are against you. Your peace of mind matters. Treat people how they want to be treated. Don’t push too hard on people who don’t need your push. Be invisible and visible with results. Try something new, fail, and fail big (I will say this again and again). Cry and smile 😊, fall and stand, but don’t forget God in all you do (always put Him first, He is the only one you can rely on), because the world will fail you, people will turn around and let you go, but He never fails.

Always put Him first, and He will guide you through. Be your husband’s/wife’s keeper. Love him/her, fight for him/her, and be there with him/her. Be a strong support for him/her. Don’t forget to take care of yourself because you are dear to me. Only if you don’t let go of yourself will we be able to write version 2 of this letter.

Take care of yourself: hit the gym, get in shape, and stop dreaming about the shape but go for what you want. Eat healthily, smile, laugh, love, travel, and take on the world with a pinch of salt because it is just that. Nothing matters more than your inner peace.

When you feel like giving up, come and read this because I want to help you and help myself. That’s why I am writing to you in advance. The storm is temporary; it will pass. Pray about it and continue with laughter. There’s nothing to hold onto but Jesus.

Don’t cry; I know it is going to be hard, but the solution is just around the corner. Get it all together, love. I love you, and I will love you until the end of the world ❤️🥰.

By the time I hear from you again, let me be able to say, “Yes, we did it! We contacted billions of people with our articles, books, podcasts, and communities.” A lot of people can testify that these writings were life-changing, not just for them, but also for me. The result is the change in you, my future self.

Let me leave you with some words of affirmation: You are light, you shine, you are beautiful, you are smart, you are one of a kind, you are loved, you are intelligent, you are a gem, you are a genius. You are great, you are wealthy, and you are rich in every sector.

Remember these:

  • You deserve love, happiness, and success.
  • You embrace challenges as opportunities for growth and learning.
  • You are resilient, and you can overcome any obstacle that comes your way.
  • You are capable of achieving your dreams and turning them into reality.
  • You are surrounded by love and support from those who care about you.
  • You are enough just as you are and don’t need to compare yourself to others.
  • You are proud of the person you are becoming, constantly evolving and growing.
  • You radiate positivity and kindness, positively impacting the world around you.
  • You are grateful for all the blessings and opportunities life presents to you.
  • You trust your intuition and make choices that align with your values and beliefs.

Thanks for reading this. Today, I am glad you are here, and I pray that we will be able to write and read version 2 of this write-up, Future Selves.

I love you all ❤️🥰. Until we meet again, remain blessed.
