/// Your Future Self Depends on Your Present Self
Your future self is just a culmination of every decision you make and experience you engage in the present.
Every single action and thought is a building block of your future self. Continuously and meticulously constructed merely for being sentient and existing, without you knowing or intentionally trying.
If you think of this proactively and move deliberately, you can really form your future as you see fit. You can control your future world from the past (now).
Your future self depends on your present self.
It’s accurately predicting your own future by specifically taking the steps towards it now, in the present. Realized by the interpersonal expectancy effect aka strategic self-fulfilling prophecy.
Your future is controlled by the past (ie, your present).
