Who doesn't have a fantasy of owning a private island? I've had one since I was as young as I could remember, and as I get older, I realize that it's not impossible.

We all need motivation to get to our goals, that's the only thing that drives us. Social pride, personal pride, the feeling of success, or infinite other reasons are what make us do things in life.

Owning a private island for myself is one of those end rewards I speak of. I consider a private island a personal sanctuary and a high, and we all are looking for that next high. I can't stand to live the way of traditional standards, so for someone with specific needs like me, only extraordinary solutions will work.
