Andy Dufresne Is Calling You Out: Sage advice from The Shawshank Redemption.

We are dreamers. We are procrastinators. Some of us even call ourselves useless.

And it’s true. We love the rut. But we also love the rush. We all know the feeling we get when we have successfully accomplished something worthwhile. Made the deal.

However, more often than not, we stick with our status quo. Instead of chasing our dreams. We twiddle our thumbs.

Seriously, we need a good telling off from Andy Dufresne. Remember he called out Red…“I guess it comes down to a simple choice, get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’.”

Do we wanna be doin’ the dyin’?

Take stock of your accomplishments. Some of us have degrees, built businesses, raised families, made it through heartaches, bla bla bla climbed the cliché mountains.

We can grit it out through the hard times. We can reach our goals.

Remember all the great things that you have achieved when you find yourself listening to all your own negative put-downs. Remember the feeling. Get busy livin’.
