letters to my past self
By Toluwalase Awoyemi

About this book

In my life so far, I have only been called out three times. The first was in primary school, over a period of 4 to 5 years, for consistently being in the last 5 pupils with awful exam scores in a class of 40. The second was when I was caught cheating in my physics test, and I was brought out to be scolded and embarrassed in front of the whole class. The third time was in my tertiary institution when I gave the valedictory speech in my department as the best graduating student. Unfortunately, this book is not an attempt to portray my story, but an attempt to share the stories of some great gentlemen and ladies who despite all odds, made it to the top 1 percent of their classes. I asked them a simple question, “If you could go back in time, what would you tell your past self?” It was exciting to realize that the same principles which moved me from that cheating loser to a valedictorian were common to us all. Hence, the feedback and my life changing experiences became the inspiration I put to write this book. I hope you find these answers mind captivating and thought provoking like I did. Cheers.
