Someday Isle

Someday Isle by Dennis Waitley

There is an island fantasy
A “Someday I’ll” never see

When recession stops, inflation ceases
Our Mortgage is paid, our pay increases

That Someday is where problems end
Where every piece of mail is from a friend

Where the children are sweet, already grown
Where all the nations can go it alone

Where we all retire at forty-one
Playing Football in the island sun

Most unhappy people look to tomorrow
To erase this day’s hardship and sorrow

They put happiness on lay-away
And struggle through a blue today

But happiness cannot be sought
It can’t be earned, it can’t be bought

Life’s most important revelation
It’s the journey that means as much as the

Happiness is where you are right now,
Pushing a pencil or pushing a plow

It’s knocking on doors and making your calls
It’s getting back up after your falls

It’s going to school or standing in line
Tasting defeat, tasting the wine

If you live in the past you become senile
If you live in the future your on Someday I’ll

The fear of results is procrastination
The joy of today is a celebration

You can save, you can slave, trudging mile after mile
But you’ll never set foot on your “Someday I’ll”

When you’ve paid all your dues and put in your time
Out of nowhere comes another Mt. Everest to climb

I have decided Today to make it my Vow
To take Someday I’ll and make it NOW

This is a very good poem I came across while reading the book THE SEVEN SECRETS Unlocking Genuine Greatness. Its a must read book. It's very inspiring.
