Are You Living On An Island Of Fear?

Written by Dave Cole

Inrepparttar movie released last year, "The Castaway," Tom Hanks playedrepparttar 123960 role of a FedEx delivery man. His job was to fly all overrepparttar 123961 world making sure thatrepparttar 123962 packages were delivered on time.

One fateful trip found his cargo plane flying through a nasty storm somewhere inrepparttar 123963 middle ofrepparttar 123964 South Pacific Ocean. The plane crashed near a tiny, deserted island. The only survivor was Hanks.

Upon awakeningrepparttar 123965 next day, Hanks found himself all alone. Alone with nothing exceptrepparttar 123966 clothes on his back.

So picture this: no matches, no tools, no food, no shelter, no communications, only 1 small flashlight along with a few packages containing some useless items that had washed up on shore.

He learned to survive a meager existence sleeping in a small dark cave. His food came from coconuts andrepparttar 123967 few fish he managed to catch.

Tom Hanks was captured and held prisoner on an island with seemingly no hope of ever escaping. Every dayrepparttar 123968 island dictated to him how he was to live.

He was trapped on that island because he saw no way of escape.

His fears of losing what small sense of security repparttar 123969 island provided, as despicable as it was, prevented him from trying to escape to a better life. A life he knew existed, but now only dreamed about.

Looking out overrepparttar 123970 vast expanse ofrepparttar 123971 ocean, he constantly thought about that better life. But those thoughts soon returned to seeingrepparttar 123972 opposition and competition that prevented him from returning to what was rightfully his.

4 long years later, Tom Hanks made a decision.

He had grown sick and tired of having a nothing life.

It was either die a nobody, going no place, on a nowhere island, continuing to live a struggling and pitiful hand to mouth existence, or......die trying to escape to a real life.
