You do not own their failures. People own their own. Accountability is a gift that builds self-respect. If you take ownership of their failures, you will see they will begin to give you their successes. Removing one more block from the foundation of self-respect.

Your Learned You Lesson…Now Let Them Learn Theirs!

Why would you want to rob one of their learning opportunity? Experience is the best teacher, not succeeding the first time is an important lesson. Rescuing is enabling, not supporting. You learned your lessons! Let them learn theirs!

The key difference between rescuing and enabling is when you do for another what they are perfectly capable of doing for themselves; and YET… you do for them anyway. This then becomes more about you, than about them. You seek to rescue than to support and facilitate their success.
