Future Authoring Letter

Letter Date: 18th February 2024

Hey Mal,

Let me just start by saying thankyou for what you’ve done, because of you I’m now able too…
Enjoy a life of financial and emotional security.

Live on a really nice property or comfortable house of my own, without having to worry about how I will afford it or working forever to achieve that goal.

Enjoy the nicer things in life guilt free. Holidays, sneaky trips away, buying things around the house that make me happy or add value to my life.

My future wife and kids will be able to experience all of these things too.
The wisdom and discipline you showed has helped me to achieve…
Owning my own house/block of land outright (debt recycled)

Going on amazing experiences and holidays without the burden of working out how to pay for it or convincing myself that it is okay to enjoy that.

My Wife and I watching our kids grow up from a position of support and presence. To not have to ship them off to daycare and be able to teach them everything they need to get a proper head start on life.
Because of what you learned and how I gained, I’ve been able to increase my impact. Here’s just some of what you’ve made possible:

Going on amazing experiences and holidays without the burden of working out how to pay for it or convincing myself that it is okay to enjoy that.

My Wife and I watching our kids grow up from a position of support and presence. To not have to ship them off to daycare and be able to teach them everything they need to get a proper head start on life.

In case you were wondering if it’s all worth it, let me assure you that… 

I tear up a bit thinking of this.
I believe that everyone has the opportunity to set themselves up for success now and in the future.

You will feel happiness, fullfilment and excitement for the things around you.
Your living situation, the family you get to share it with, the comfort of not having to work big weeks anymore. The feeling of knowing you are all secure and life is sorted, relax and enjoy it.
I know you worked hard and made sacrifices to make the lifestyle I now live possible, so let me walk you through a typical day so that you know what’s head of you…
Wake up in the morning to no alarm, birds out the window and life all around on a nice sized block of land, no neighbours in earshot and far enough away from the road so people driving past arent an issue.
Coffee on the front verandah while the kids play around, tv or music on in the background.
It’s a Tuesday and there’s no casual work today, all good though because the finances are sorted.
Drop the kids off to school, come home and play in the yard, make sure everything is tidy and all the chores are up to date.
Dinner in the evening with mostly food we have on the block of land.
Wine in hand after dinner whilst discussing our next big financial goal or our next holiday.
Kids are asleep and the day is done, we both feel refreshed because we aren’t stressing about working big hours or having to do everything around the house by ourselves.
Win!
Lastly, I need you to know that…
Mate I’d be reaching out and giving you a big kiss and not a big slap.
You made magic happen, it was hard work but if it was easy everyone would do it.

You didn’t give up, you set goals and you worked tirelessly towards them. You might’ve taken some sidesteps along the way but you made it!
