After researching “the symbolic meaning of an envelope,” he discovered that a “…’sealed envelope’ symbolizes dreams and goals that are just out of reach, or being kept from someone.” As a personal prophetic declaration, for him and anyone else that would get it, he decided to represent the very opposite.
“To me, the ‘torn envelope’ represents success by one’s own ability, drive, and determination. I’m the one who ripped open the envelope… who pulled out its contents… and who will achieve this goal. I decided to color code the list of goals. Each envelope would represent a certain aspect of life for success."
The blue envelope symbolizes “stability of mind, wisdom”.
