Letter To My Young Self

  1. The journey of life is far more important than the destination.
  2. Always treat people with kindness and respect, you never know where you would meet them in future.
  3. A good name is far better than silver and gold. Proverbs 22:1.
  4. Life will not always be fair. And it’s ok to cry, sometimes. Then dust yourself and move on.
  5. The only constant thing in life is change. This should come as an encouragement that every tough situation you are going through shall pass.
  6. Your network is your net worth.
  7. Live life to the fullest and be open to new possibilities.
  8. Embrace your struggles and failures, they bring out a better version of you.
  9. You cannot change others. The only person you can change is you.
  10. Life will only give you what you demand of it.
  11. There is no such thing as luck. Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
  12. Practice the law of attraction and abundance. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
  13. Stop comparing yourself to others.
  14. Take care of your body, you only have one life to live.
  15. Some people are in your life for a season, some for a reason, others a lifetime.
  16. Authentic living starts with being true to yourself.
  17. Don’t taking yourself too seriously.
  18. Don’t look for others to validate you. Every day when you wake up in the mirror, look at yourself and say, I am beautiful!
  19. Be obsessively grateful, because tomorrow is not promised
  20. You are always a student of life. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

    Great article.

    1. The journey of life is far more important than the destination.

    Can you please explain further on this.
    My thought is that “the destination is as important as the journey.”

      Hi Olaleye,
      Thanks so much for visiting my website and blog. The meaning of this first sentence is that in life, we often pay focus more on the result, and forget to give ourselves time to enjoy the journey and growth along the way. The process is just as important. For example when studying for an exam, the final goal and destination is often to get an A, however along the preparation process, you learn discipline, self motivation and organization. Often times, these attributes are what shapes us to become a better version of ourselves. I hope I provided some clarity. If you have more questions, please feel free to reach me on my email:chiddyukonne@gmail.com
