Learn Speak Teach Episode 47 with Jen Zawadzki.

When we meet our future selves, our life changes, and we are able to accomplish things that once didn’t seem imaginable or possible. Our future selves see us in a different light than we see ourselves right now. Sometimes we forget how great we are, even when we’re doing everything right and working our asses off. We forget how great we are when we feel challenged, overwhelmed, or things are not working as we may have wanted. Our future selves are always calling us to greatness and appreciate our own worthiness.

When we get a glimpse of who we truly are, we start to realize that no matter what challenges come our way, there is always light at the end of the tunnel and a greater version of us ready to conquer whatever life throws our way.

Jen Zawadzki (a.k.a. “Jen Z”) is the CEO and Founder of The Future You Project, a brand that specializes in curated gift boxes and wellness activities that elevate, celebrate, and encourage people to better their future.

Jen is also a writer and guest speaker for numerous publications, television networks, and women’s empowerment groups.
