Do you often feel the need to “rescue” people during their struggles or challenges?
We're often so quick to want to help by offering advice or solving the problems ourselves that we forget that HOW we help is actually the key to powerful learning moments for others.
Offering the space and structure to allow people to grow is exponentially more beneficial than doing the heavy lifting for them. There’s a reason that butterflies are meant to emerge from a chrysalis without any assistance. Their wings are meant to slowly unfold and strengthen as a result of the process… Any interference, even with good intentions, would only prevent a critical part of the butterfly’s development.
Rather than instinctively taking on someone else’s problem as your own, consider how you can get them to think through it so they can leverage their own ideas, skills, knowledge, or expertise.
