Ever heard of it? We’ve all been there. It is most likely the cheapest and easiest to reach Island you’ll ever visit.
You probably won’t even realize you are there. You’ll be sitting on the coach or in your easy chair. You will be watching TV, internet porn or playing Grand Theft Auto on the Playstation. It really doesn’t matter what, because if you aren’t engaged in activities that are actively bringing you closer to achieving a goal you are wasting not only your time but your life as well.
Your Time and Life are Finite…don’t waste them
Can you hear the tropical music? The waves crashing on the shore? Hold on, I’ve got a drink for you and here are your free passes to the Tropical Luau tonight. Thanks for joining us and congratulations…..because you are a loser. You dream big but think small. You make big plans but sit on your laurels drinking beer and smoking cigarettes. All your goals and dreams, if you even have any at this point, are wasting away to nothing.
It is not to late!
Shake it off and get up and do something…anything. Set a small goal or task and just do it. Always be moving forward. Just the simple act of logging off the damn Facebook is enough to say you’ve started. Think of it this way, have you ever read Lord of the Flies or watched Survivor on televison?
Someday Isle is a very similar place. It is a beautiful place and very inviting…but if you stay there to long it will kill you. The island is alive and it has nefarious purposes. The island succeeds when you fail. So stop sitting in the shade, dust off the sand and start cutting bamboo. Build a freakin raft and paddle yourself to safety.
Discomfort today can lead to Pleasure tomorrow
Comfort today results in loser tomorrow. Hard work and sacrifice today results in success tomorrow. Someone has said this before, but live today like others won’t, so you can live tomorrow like others can’t.
Someday Isle robs you of your motivation. Someday Isle steals your initiative. To be successful in life you’ve got to delay gratification and work your ass off today. Get your priorities in order and set some goals for yourself. Believe you can achieve it and do the damn thing.
The Decision is Yours and Yours Alone
I’m by no means rich and successful, but I have started a small cattle ranch. I invested in real estate and have rental property. I have run a political campaign and won a city council election. I was even elected as Vice-Mayor of a decent sized city. None of this would have happened on Someday Isle. It only happened because I seized the moment, I took initiative and made a decision.
The decision to act is the most important factor in your success or failure. Once I DECIDED to run for city council, there was no stopping me. I would have continued to campaign and take the necessary steps until I was elected. At the point the decision was made there was no question of if I would win, it was only when.
Someday Isle is real and it is inviting. But it will also rob you of the most important asset you have…your potential. Trust me. Stay focused and work today and tomorrow you will buy your own damn island…in cash.
