Have you ever wanted to reach a level of success that you thought was out of your reach? Yeah, I did too. I think most of us just think that some people are capable of success, being rich, thriving and living life.
During my first year of starting my own business, I was exposed to a LOT of amazing women. I mean, A LOT. I’ve been able to connect with so many amazing women that I started to realize my true potential and that maybe I was capable of reaching success.
During this process, I started learning more about the power of manifestation. It was a word that I heard before, but I never really knew what it meant. I started noticing that just about everyone in the coaching world was talking about the power of manifestation and how it could be used to reach success.
I’ve also started reading books that talked about this as well. I’ve read so many success stories where people used the power of manifestation to reach a level of success they didn’t think was possible for them. They started achieving more, leaving all of their doubts behind.
It honestly sounds like something that just isn’t possible. I doubted it for a long time, kind of just ignoring the concept altogether. I would brush off the idea that I could potentially reach a level of success that I could only dream of. I just thought it was kind of silly and that just wasn’t for me. Sure, I wanted it, but there’s no way I could do that. Just isn’t possible.
I’ve heard about the power of manifestation so much, that I finally started getting intrigued. What if..just what if… I could do it myself as well. What if, we are all capable of it, that maybe we are the ones standing in our own way.
So… I decided to try something.
I decided to write a letter to my future self, in 3 months. I have learned so much over the last couple years and I just wanted to see if I can pull all of it together and start to manifest some of the success that I’m aspiring for. If I want these things to happen, I have to get myself into the right mindset and really believe that I can do it.
At the end of 2019, I made it a goal to write a letter to my future self all through 2020. Every 3 months I’m going to open a letter to myself and write another one for another 3 months.
I think it will be really interesting to see all that happens and what I can accomplish in a year. A full year of experimenting with manifestation.
The time is already going to pass, might as well start taking ACTION & try to start manifesting success!
Here is my experience with writing a letter to my future self. <3
PIN NOW, READ LATER!
December 23, 2019
While I’m writing this, it is December 23, 2019 & I wrote a letter to myself to be opened on March 23, 2020.
By the time I read my letter at the end of March, I hope to be able to look back at this day and realize that the manifestation works. Believing in myself without putting pressure on myself works. That I can do and accomplish anything that I put my mind to. I’m not telling myself that I have to set completely unrealistic goals, but that I’m at least starting to see a shift!
Let’s see if this works!
March 23, 2020
This day has been in the back of my mind for the last 3 months. I’ve been wondering if I have been able to manifest the things that I wrote about in my letter.
Honestly, I didn’t manifest all that I wrote about in the letter. But, the letter brought me to tears. While reading it, I was feeling how I felt in that moment 3 months ago. I was thinking about everything that I was able to do & accomplish in those last 3 months.
This is an extremely powerful exercise.
Even though I didn’t reach some of those goals that I put in place for myself, I was able to reflect and understand just how far I was able to come in that time. I was able to see all of the work that I was able to accomplish. I was able to see everything that I was able to learn in those 3 months.
At one point I wrote, “No matter what you are feeling, don’t give up on yourself.” I also kept telling myself how proud I am of myself and to keep going no matter where I am in this moment.
I think this is important because we often don’t see & appreciate everything that we are doing and have done in our lives. Even though we don’t accomplish one specific goal, this exercise has helped me take a step back & really put everything into perspective.
It really got me thinking about where I was in that moment 3 months ago and everything that I’ve been able to do in that time. It’s about being able to put everything into perspective. Sometimes success doesn’t look the same as what we think and that’s why I think this exercise is so incredibly important. It’s about putting our trust into the universe and allowing life to unfold the way it’s supposed to.
We get so caught up in the motions of everyday life. We are so hard on ourselves, at least I am, when things don’t work out the way that we envisioned. It’s disappointing & discouraging because we think that we have failed. There is nothing like the feeling of failure and disappointment. Disappointment in ourselves for not being able to reach those goals we set out for ourselves.
I’m honestly shocked at how powerful this exercise is and I’m not just saying that to make this post more intriguing. We all have the power inside of ourselves to create the life that we desire. It takes a lot of mindset work, a lot of surrendering and putting trust in the universe that everything will work out the way it’s supposed to.
This exercise is so powerful because it allows you to reflect and see things in a different perspective. Just when you think you haven’t gotten very far in the last couple months, it helps you see everything that you truly were able to accomplish. Sometimes it looks different than what you originally had thought, and that can be very deceiving in the moment.
I would recommend this exercise to anyone! To anyone who is wanting to reach a different level of success in their lives. It’s incredibly powerful & I am still in shock about how incredible this exercise has been.
My goal for this year was to write a letter to myself every 3 months. So, I went ahead and wrote another letter to myself for June 23, 2020. I can’t wait to see everything that I will accomplish in these next 3 months!
