Why You Should Write A Letter To Your Future Self

Visualizing your future helps to make it come true. It’s a secret that top athletes and entrepreneurs have been using for centuries.

Some would call that little bit of magic “the law of attraction”, but I think it’s more like this: when you set your intentions, out loud and in writing, your subconcious mind picks it up and believes it and stores it away.

What do you see yourself in the future?

Will you be the same? Different?

What kind of person will you be?

Write a letter to your future self — one year from now will be a good start — and seal it. Make a date in your calendar to open it one year from now. Then start working to become the person you want to open that letter.

Imagine writing to your future self five years from now — what would you say?

What kind of person would you be?

What goals would you want to have achieved?

Not only is it mind boggling, but it gets you thinking about your goals five years from now. As you write your letter, you will start to think about the actions you should take to realize them in your expected time frame.
