Have an Answer?
There are many careers that help people. In fact, all successful people have helped others solve problems. I would encourage you to think about helping in this way. When people make "poor choices", they are doing the best they can given what they know (NLP); our task as "helpers" is to change their thinking so they see more choices that have favorable outcomes.
As a therapist that is our main goal, as a motivational speaker that is the main goal, as a physician that is our main goal, and a host of other careers. Let's not focus on how bad or poor their choices let's focus on what alternatives would work better to get what they (you) want in life.
