Reading for yourself is actually a really good practice technique, as well as a chance to take some time to address issues within your own life. I try to spend at least once a week with reading for myself, and I journal my experiences. That way, I can keep track of my development with the deck, further my understanding of each of the cards, and it's also pretty therapeutic.
Honestly, I don't think that the future is something that is concrete or inescapable. I believe that everyone is destined for some greater purpose of sorts, but whether or not they answer that calling and/or fulfill that ...it's up to them and their life choices.
I wouldn't recommend doing too many readings for yourself, since that can make you dependent on the cards and you could end up putting too much stock in the outcome of your readings; I've known a lot of people who put more faith in their spreads than in their own common sense :P But if it's to keep in practice, and to get more familiar with your deck, just do whatever feels natural for you :)
