If someone offered me $1million dollars to spend a year on my own on a desert island, I would say yes!
What do you think of a desert island? Perhaps you’ll imagine dangerous animals such as venomous snakes or scorpions. People are reluctant to live on a desert island due to such ubiquitous peril. But if someone offers me $1 million dollars to spend a year on my own on a desert island, I will do it. First, if I live on a desert, I can be the best in the world; second, I can build a secure house made of soil; third, if I get along with the wild animals on the desert, I could feel so happy that one year will pass quickly. It can be argued that there are a lot of dangerous animals; therefore it could harm you, even kill you. But animals do not harm people easily.
First reason is that if I live on the desert, I will always care about my death, not be afraid of hardships leading to the best in the world. For example, if I’m concerned with my death, I’ll try to survive on the desert with not being afraid of hardships, establish my own principles for survival and by my rules, become a successful man. Steve Jobs had confronted with his death. Every day, he thought of what I have to do if I die. Because of this, he was immersed in his work, made his own principles and was not afraid of difficulties leading to establish an international company called Apple.
Second, the desert consists of mainly soil which I can use to build a secure house. For instance, if I mix water and soil together, I can build my house to protect myself from all dangerous things. According to mokpo28.pe.kr, there are many evidences about houses made of soil to protect residents safely from risks on the Sahara desert.
Third, if I become familiar with rare animals, one year will pass quickly. For example, there are a lot of animals living in an oasis. At first, it will be hard to get close with them but if I treat them with care, perhaps I'll be their friend and play games with them. According to blogger born in France who is living in the Africa, her parents are animal photographers. Though she is not living on a deserted island, she always treats animals sincerely so she is familiar with leopards, lions and elephants etc.
A common complaint against living on a deserted island is that there are many dangerous animals that will kill you. However, if you know how animals behave, you will understand that they are not really dangerous. Animals mainly attack that harms them. Sometime, carnivores like hyenas could be looking for food but they don't attack humans easily. According to National geographic, one cameraman mostly spent his time filming hyenas’ life and unless he bothers the animals, it got along with him rather than attack him.
In conclusion, I will spend a year on a deserted island with $1 million dollars. Living there will help me to be successful. If I make a house made of soil and become familiar with the rare animals, I’ll be safe and that year will pass quickly. While other people consider a deserted island to be uninhabitable due to animals, they don’t attack easily. When choosing whether living on a deserted island with $1 million dollars, it is foolish to reject such a chance by just listening to the stereotype.
