The Ultimate Change-Your-Life Guide

for Purpose-Driven Ex-Offenders!

#7441  Wow! Designed as a quick and fun read, this powerful little pocket guide helps ex-offenders jump-start their lives by re-imagining an alternative reality within their grasp – a positive and hopeful future filled with purpose, passion, meaning, empathy, and love. It’s a “get-up-and-go” guide for those experiencing the dark side of life – in this case, serving idle time in an often mind-numbing and stressful human zoo. Anxious and curious minds behind prison bars seek answers to these two questions – “Is there more to life than this?” and “What should I do with the rest of my life?” These questions serve as clarion calls for self-transformation.

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:

  1. Happiness
  2. Gratitude
  3. Mindfulness
  4. Attitude
  5. Anger management
  6. Values
  7. Passions
  8. Motivated abilities and skills
  9. Goals and objectives

Users discover how to live a meaningful life on purpose and with passion – a life centered on their most important values, skills, and goals. The book shows how to join the growing number of mindful people – those struggling with “mind wandering,” boredom, loneliness, anger, and depression – who have transformed themselves into happy, healthy, resilient, wise, kind, loving, self-compassionate, socially connected, and successful individuals. An important resource for rebuilding the troubled lives of ex-offenders. © 2019. 3 7/8″ x 4 7/8″. 64 pages.
