Let me ask you something... how are your beliefs and your "need" to help getting in the way of REALLY supporting others?
What would happen if other people's dreams had nothing, zip, zero, nada to do with YOU & your opinion or experience?
How would you respond if you entered into the conversation without any preconceived ideas of how that person should live their life or create their business?
Sometimes people are excited. They want to share. They are vulnerably letting you see their desire...
They aren't asking for your opinion, your beliefs, or your 7-step-system. They aren't broken because they want something that didn't work for you, or that you've heard isn't a good way to go. Even if you know them so well and have their best interest in mind...
...don't give it to them.
Give them real true support by saying 'way to go, I believe in you, let me know if I can support you in any way.'
That's true best interest.
Real support looks a lot like being really present with the other person and trusting that they know what's best for their path.
And if there's something that you really, really want to add, for goodness sake, ask their permission first. "Hey, I noticed something here - are you open to feedback at the moment?" Don't assume they want to hear or are ready to hear your brilliance...
