Yeah I have helped someone achieve their goal, except that this one was more school oriented. Basically these were one of the friends I had that felt that doing more inappropriate activities you know, things that kids nowadays think are cool were more important than schoolwork, and recently the school contacted him, telling him that if he did not get his grades up, they would have to kick him out of the school.

It took weeks of staying up late on school days, re-teaching him material, and motivating him that he could do it for him to succeed, and although he ended the quarter with many C+s, I was happy that I could help him to realize what mattered in school, and our friendship has been stronger than ever since.
