"Especially respected the fact that you didn’t let me waste my time bitching. We got down to work fast and created the blueprint as you call it and installed it (now that’s funny). I’m using the simple follow up process and feeling superb. I’m in total control in the boardroom and no longer seething inside. Next time we are in town can you see my wife? " Rick K Phoenix 

Rick is a 37 year old married businessman with two children. He has created several successful companies and considers himself a “tech-geek.”  Despite his success Rick has battled mild depression and social anxiety for most of his life. He felt that these issues were “genetic.”  He stated that he had developed coping mechanisms to manage those challenges but that he was at a loss in terms of the anger he felt.

Rick often became intensely angry at work and at home, but rarely expressed his anger outwardly. He had ongoing headaches, ulcers and slept poorly. He often managed his feelings of frustration and irritation by drinking in the evenings. He did not view himself as having an addiction but admitted that he lacked sufficient coping skills and that likely his upbringing had significance.

Rick was an only child of quiet parents who avoided conflict. There was little verbal communication in the home. Rick experienced the family home as “emotionally cold.” He learned to recognize when his parents were tense and would often respond by isolating himself in his bedroom.  As a teen he had few friends, minimal social skills and felt that he was an outsider. Despite these challenges Rick excelled academically and went on to earn two degrees and started his first company while still in his 20’s.

Rick requested support after issues arose around his own children’s development. A teacher voiced concern about his children’s lack of social/peer skills and Rick recognized that his children were following in his footsteps. They avoided contact with him when he was angry and stressed, just as he had isolated himself from his emotionally unavailable parents.

Rick was thrilled to complete several online instruments as part of success planning but found the individualized personal assessment component to be challenging. Feeling very stuck, he had developed a strong negative emotional mindset and needed encouragement to begin constructing a new vision or blueprint for a better future. Rick struggled with the process but was adamant that the status quo could not continue. He wanted a better outcome for himself and his family, and eventually agreed to follow through with experiential assignments designed to support subconscious acceptance of a new reality.

Today, Rick is in a much better place. He has reconnected with his original potential and developed the tools and strategies required to back up the identity he has chosen for himself. He and his wife have used variations of the model in working with the children and they are beginning to see improvements. He is proud to say that the family home now has an atmosphere of emotional warmth. Conflicts are managed and the children have settled into a better experience at school.
