Prison coaching tough love. Telling it like it is. Being real. Call it what you want, but accountability drives our style of coaching. It works, but only if you work too. Let’s talk about making sure your work ethic matches your goals…

prison coaching motivation to change

Showing up matters just as much as intelligence and talent

Whether you’re facing federal prison time, looking for financial freedom or dreaming of making a big change, you have to be willing to work for it. If I asked you what someone needs to be successful, what would you say? Maybe you’d list things like talent, education, money or business savvy. According to Forbes, if you want to succeed, grit, hard work and determination are just as important as intelligence and talent.

Own it

It doesn’t matter how much training, money or intelligence you have if your work ethic is weak. You either show up, or you don’t. People who show up are the people who level up and achieve their dreams. In our prison coaching sessions, we help clients see the truth about their situations. That’s the first step to developing a strong work ethic; owning your situation. Until you do that, you put the power in someone else’s hands and you feel, think and act like a victim.

Plan it

Next, we help our prison coaching clients develop goals and map out a path to get there. After all, how are you going to reach your destination if you don’t take time to plan your route? Breaking things down into clear next steps makes big situations seem more manageable. When you realize there is one next step, it doesn’t feel as stressful. Once you have a plan, commit to doing whatever it takes to make it happen.

Do the work

Commitment means nothing without follow through. The first day or the first week, it might be easy to do the work. In that phase, things are new and it probably feels exciting to finally be able to do something to make things happen. As you get farther into working your plan, you might lose some of that enthusiasm. That is when you need to buckle down and keep moving forward. That’s working with a qualified prison coach keeps you accountable and focused. We lay out specific goals and time frames for you and if you do not do the work, you won’t last in our prison coaching program for long. We only want to work with people who are motivated to do the work to achieve the goal.

The RDAP Dan difference

There are plenty of coaches out there who would take your money and hold your hand while you make excuses. If that’s what you’re looking for, it shouldn’t be hard to find them. We truly care about our clients, and we know what it takes to get great results. Sometimes, the truth stings a little, but it’s necessary to reach the right destination.
