“Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying.”
It’s something Andy Dufresne says to Red in a memorable scene in the movie The Shawshank Redemption. I have always loved that quote, but not until Mike’s Reboot Camp™ did I really embrace its true meaning. For the first time in a long time, Mike had me feeling like I was living. While most of my vacations in the past had proved to be a nice temporary escape from reality, this unique journey helped me define a new reality, cherishing and appreciating what really matters. What started as a much needed getaway, quickly evolved into an adventure of self-discovery, self-confidence, self-awareness and self-awakening. During the trip I was in constant awe of my surreal surroundings—the jawdropping sunsets, the picturesque beaches, the clear water, but truthfully I was more in awe of Mike and his unwavering commitment to me. Mike made it his personal mission to remind me about valuing the quality of my life, to re-connecting with the things that matter, to finding my way to a healthier path. His knowledge and insight were equally as impressive as the sunsets. Most of all, he believed in me, and in turn I believed in me.Joining the Reboot Camp ™ was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am truly grateful for the experience, for Mike’s dedication, and for the much needed perspective and energy it afforded me.
