What Would 85 Years Old You Have To Say About Present You?

Your future self is built upon taking fearless action. Fearless action flows from within and it’s a few mental shifts of perspective away.

The time is now; the consequences of your actions are far stretching into your future.

Never in human existence were there a documented moment when somebody moved a part of anybody else’s body or mind on their part. There were sudden influences, bursts of inflated confidence we call nowadays ‘motivation’, scientific experiments but for all we know, we are all 100% responsible for our mindset and movement.

The stronger motivator towards embracing change within ourselves is our impending death. The inevitable end of all things shades new light on our irrational fears.

What will others say or think about what we do is an excuse. A simple way out. To what degree does another human being, living an equally frail existence, have a mere importance when it comes to your deepest inner puzzle pieces coming together to form your purpose? At the end of the day, the ones that matter are well occupied following their true meaning. It takes time to become who you were meant to be.

We rob our present selves from every important achievement and feeling by using pity excuses to justify not being able to follow our deep purpose.
