I have often heard it said that one of life’s greatest
tragedies is when someone dies at a young age. I believe an
even greater tragedy would be to live to one hundred,
without ever having really lived.
Someday Isle is well known to most people. It is a place
that we dream of and talk about, but where we never seem to
arrive. Someday Isle is all of those things we wanted to do
in our lives; all those places we wanted to visit; all those
things we wanted to have. But we put them off because of
“Someday I’ll.” Someday I’ll try whitewater rafting …
Someday I’ll finish school … Someday I’ll move out of this
neighborhood … Someday I’ll have a family … Someday I’ll be
Think about it. What have you been putting off doing that

limiting beliefs or fears? Are these limiting beliefs or
fears real, or are they just excuses?

I am aware of terminally ill cancer patients that have
formed “Adventure Clubs.” These patients have been told they
are going to die, some in a few months, others in several
months, and a lucky few within the next 2-5 years.
These patients started adventure clubs to seek out and do
everything they were afraid to do when they were “well.”
They went white water rafting, sky diving, rode roller
coasters and ate spicy foods they never tried before. They
visited places they always wanted to see, but never made
time for. They simply made the best out of every day they
had left, without fear or limiting beliefs.
They would tell their loved ones they loved them, every day.
They didn’t hold back!
You already know this, but chances are you may have lost
sight of it. Nobody is promised tomorrow. We are all going
to die one day. You don’t need to have a terminal illness to
decide you want to live each and every
day to the fullest.
YOU have that choice today. You always have!
