I immensely enjoy helping individuals reach their goals. I find it totally exhilarating. Working with a person is most satisfying when the individual actually desires to achieve success. I am doing exactly what I desire to do, what I am gifted to do, and what makes me happy. It is less satisfying working with someone who does not care about his or her own progress. I cannot make a person want to care. I can encourage, and motivate and provide information and resources. It is disheartening to watch individuals throw their lives away and not put forth effort, especially when resources have been furnished and supporters truly care. Watching individuals self destruct is very difficult. Hoping a person will take interest in his or herself is desired. Hope keeps me encouraged and motivated. When I answer questions from someone as you, I get re-energized. Each positive encounter allows me to keep doing what I do. Thanks for contacting me.
