Some people are where they are due to cognitive dissonance and wont change when you give them information. With them, it is best to leave them with questions they must research themselves, so they feel they discovered the information, and this changes their cognitive dissonance.
Some people just need to have new peers, who are a step above them in life. people naturally wish to be at a minimum, equal to those they surround themselves with and will work to educate and lift themselves up to that level.
Some people never improve, you can help them and open doors and they will never walk through the doors, never improve their situation and are a waste of time.

Make sure you know what type you are dealing with and how to help them, so you dont waste valuable energy on those who will never change or improve. Having the will to improve is the difference between success and stagnation
