We all have responsibility for ourselves. We can help, guide, and teach others. Yet, what they do will all the assistance we give them is up to them. We cannot live their lives for them. At the end of the day, they must go forward and put in the work needed to get where they want to be.
For my part, I strive to give knowledge, faith in oneself, and hints and tricks that may be helpful. I help my clients leave disabling false fears behind, map a path forward they want, and understand what it takes to complete. It is important to help them find the paths to explore, the knowledge to compete, and the belief that they can meet their goal.
At the same time, I must not inhibit their freedom to do this independently. Clients must be in charge of their own destiny. I only help by providing and training people on the tools to help them.
