This book focuses on changing mindsets of individuals locked in cages. Fear, distrust, boredom, loneliness, anger, grief, depression, and hopelessness frequently characterize the mental state of inmates. While jails and prisons often scramble minds and exacerbate “mental drift,” they also offer opportunities to rethink, refocus, re-imagine, and repack one’s bags for pursuing a meaningful life.
This self-directed pocket guide shows ex-offenders how to change their thinking about who they are, what they want to do, and where they want to be. Nine key sections – filled with a revealing collection of self-tests, exercises, questions, insights, and strategies – provide a strong foundation for developing one’s purpose.
