This Olympian Fulfilled Her Own Prophesy, And It Reminds You To Dream BIG.
Sometimes, we wish we could predict the future. As it turns out, no one is actually capable of doing that -- but with hard work and determination, your goals for the future become your reality. It's not magic or prophesy, but instead consistent execution, doing whatever it takes to achieve your dreams. There might be some unplanned pitstops along the way, but eventually, you'll get there.
That's exactly what happened to Olympic runner Morolake Akinosun, though the spot-on nature of her prediction is a little spooky. Five years ago, she tweeted something that outlined what she wanted to be doing now, in 2016. There was no way of knowing that things would go her way, but for Akinosun, there was no other option. Check out the story below and see how she turned her predictions into a reality -- if only all of us could be so focused at such a young age.

Apparently, she saw it all coming before it even happened. Here's what she wrote on Twitter back in 2011.
In 2016 I will be 22, graduated from a school I have not chosen yet, and going to the olympics (:— Morolake Akinosun™ (@MsFastTwitch) July 28, 2011
And here's her tweet from a few days ago. When you read it, you're going to be floored.
I tweeted that 5 years ago.— Morolake Akinosun™ (@MsFastTwitch) July 30, 2016
I graduate from Texas in December.
I'm going to the Olympics next week. https://t.co/vusyh5G5Y3
With this kind of accuracy, we can only hope she sees her perfect Olympic results coming soon. If it's anything like her other predictions, she's going to have an excellent year.
