Do you or your friends that live on Someday Island?

When my ship comes in or when I lose this 35 pounds I will be happy. I would say 80 percent of the people live in “someday land.”

These people have lots of excuses for why they haven’t achieved goals. For example, they should have been homecoming queen 32 years ago, they were the best player on the team but everybody liked Johnny better.

No more excuses! Get yourself off the island today. It’s your decision.

Start your book on what great is going on in my life! Take the time to write down what you want to get done in the next 30 days, now the next 180 days.

Why such a short time frame? To get you started by being focused on what you can do with your goals and start you having self-discipline to do what you’re wanting to do.

Self-discipline is the start of great things for you to keep you off someday island.

Do me a favor, when you write things down in the future and you check them off and start having more fun, please let me know!
