In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy

 

This week, I answer a listener’s question on what they should say to their nephew who has been in prison for a decade.

 

Most people in prison think so much about getting out, they don’t know what to do when they finally are.

  • This leads to a huge amount of people who end up back in prison.
  • You can help them plan how they will achieve the life they want.
  • Let them know the opportunity they have to plan now, before they come back into society.

 

Offer to be their life coach.

  • Let them know you’re willing to help, but they have to want to improve.
  • They designed their life in a way that made them end up in prison, so they need guidance.
  • Urge them to change their mindset and send them impactful books to read.

 

Let them know many people have successfully traveled the path that lies before them.

  • Tell them you see great hope in their future.
  • Starting from ground zero isn’t easy, but it can be done.

 

Tune in to hear the three books Andy recommends sending to someone in prison.
