Have you ever helped someone with the best intentions and have the situation turn out as a big disaster?  Did your helpful acts have long lasting negative effects?  Did your actions enable another person not to accept responsibility for their own actions?

Let me tell you another true story…

So how do you help someone facing adversity or a challenging situation starting with the best intentions, so that it does not become a big disaster, does not have long lasting negative effects, or allows someone to avoid taking responsibility for their own actions? Do you not set proper boundaries to enable the behavior of someone facing adversity?

Use the modified STAR technique. (Fair Use – Educational Purposes).

The modified STAR technique is Situation, Truth, Action, Result.

Using the modified STAR technique and setting proper boundaries allows you to assist others and make a positive impact in their lives without becoming an enabler.
