We don’t have to overcome emotional problems as the first step in changing our lives.
But if we don’t, we can often run into problems.
Julia (not her real name) came to me wanting to move on in her life.
And she had a problem that was common with many of my other clients…
Welcome to the Friday Factoid with Massage and Mind:- A factoid is a brief factual statement.
Julia had tried to make changes and overcome emotional problems many times in the past. And even though she succeeded in behaving in her “new” way for several days, she found that, eventually, she always fell back into her old habits again.
This is what often happens to those of us who want to react and/ or behave differently. We just can’t keep on doing what we want to be doing. And whenever we fall back into old habits again there is usually but just one reason for it…
… there is a barrier that must first, be located and then removed.
How To Overcome Emotional Problems And Get Your Life On Track
I recently came across Ricochet, the dog, on the internet. And watching the video brought out several emotions in me.
All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you’re not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. They will tell you no, a thousand times no, until all the no’s become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly.
And you will tell them, YES.
Ricochet was being trained to do something that was not natural for him. But when his owner realised this, she did something that was very sensible. She helped him develop the things he was good at, rather than punishing him for not being as she wanted him to be
Watch the video and see what you think.
Ricochet is now an internationally renowned champion surf dog. In doing that he also has become an inspirational and motivational role model for anyone wanting to overcome emotional problems.

This Is How Ricochet Can Help You
If you want to be yourself and achieve more, the first thing to do is to overcome emotional problems, and then you can more easily build upon your strengths.
Ricochet was perfect the way he was – just as we all are – if only we can but remember that.
When you want to change things about yourself, first be yourself and then be the best you can be.
