Heart Rescue - Success From the Heart
Virtually everything you need to learn in life, you can learn
from your pet.
As a psychologist and certified life and business coach, I
have worked with Oscar-winning celebrities, Olympic athletes,
bestselling authors, world-renowned speakers, Fortune 100
company’s CEOs and entrepreneurs at every level of success, from
startup to those running hundreds-of-million-dollar companies.
Ninety-nine percent of the time, clients come to me because
they want to make more money or want more time off or both.
Discovering that they can achieve this by listening to and caring
for an animal usually comes as a surprise.
It is the simplest ideas and the easiest paths that often seem
hard to believe. And yet they are the surest way to success and
fulfillment. Everything relates to everything, and so, everything
is a reflection and extension of yourself. Money—having it or not
having it—is a result of the thoughts and beliefs you hold inside
of you, consciously or not. Animals are mirrors, reflecting to you
your anxieties, fears, frustrations, concerns, joys and so on. Have
you noticed that, when you are anxious, the animals around you
are anxious? When you are calm, your animals are calm. Animals
soak up the essence of who you are—your thoughts, beliefs,
struggles and desires—and show you the truth of who you are in
transformational power of animals to the work I already do with
There are about eight main life areas—money, career,
relationships, health, education, environment, play and charity—
and your pets will help you succeed in all of them. Recall that I
believe animals act as a mirror, and that they remind you of the
child within you, the time when you made heart-centered choices.
These benefits alone would be enough to motivate most people
to pay special attention to their pets and all that pets can teach
humans. And yet there is much more that animals have to give us.
Taking time to love, feed or exercise your pet, or with your
pet, enables you to focus on one thing and one thing only: your
relationship with your pet. When I am walking my dog, or just
sitting with my cat and dog and giving them my attention, this
is one of the few times I’m able to stop my mind from racing and
feel pure bliss. When my clients are stressed, I always tell them
to do some sort of art, or movement such as yoga or dance, or
meditation with their pets.
Your pet also is fully one with you and does not leave you
unattended or out of sight. I always smile when I am inside a
store and have left my pet momentarily tied outside or in the car
(with open windows) and I peek outside and I see those two eyes
completely, one hundred percent hyper-focused on me. The world
could come to an end and those eyes would still be on their human.
The power of focus!
It is scientifically proven that animals aid in reducing and often
eliminating stress. Pet owners live longer and are generally happier
than non-pet-owners. In this way, animals help you improve all
life areas. When you slow down and stay focused on one aspect of
your life, then you are better able to make real and lasting positive
change. Have you ever been able to remain sad when you look into
an animal’s eyes?
Humans are, by definition,
animals. Now, if animals don’t stress about money, why should
we humans stress? Animals stay in the present moment and never
stress about money, knowing and trusting they will always be okay.
I invite you to pay attention to the animals in your life. Are
your pets happy? Playful? Do they follow their training? Or do
they seem nervous or scared? Do they make messes in the house
and generally cause trouble? Or, if you do not have pets, how do
animals react to you when you encounter them? Are they over-
excited, or calm and loving? In my opinion, how animals behave
around you and relate to you gives you clues as to how you perceive
yourself and how you are perceived by the world.
I have witnessed that, beyond the mirror, animals remind you
who you really are, the person you are yearning to reconnect with,
the person who, like so many abandoned animals on this earth,
needs to be rescued. Animals see the real you, the child with eyes
full of hope and a pure and positive heart. Our pets have kept their
innocence. They know what matters most in life: unconditional
love, healthy food, clean drinking water, plenty of exercise, restful
sleep, constant companionship and abundant play. They remind
you that this is the true, balanced path toward living a fulfilling
I am an immigrant. I came to the United States from Italy and
made it on my own. It wasn’t easy. Because I was so far from my
family, my pets became my family. When I felt discouraged, my
pets kept me balanced and helped me stay on track. I’m highly
grateful for them.
Over the years, I have become more and more interested in how
animals help us heal, help us grow, help us live happy and balanced
lives. I began to study the human-animal bond and wrote my PhD
dissertation on the subject, while helping my clients create the lives
they desired. Today, I apply my knowledge about the healing and
unexpected turns, as long as we go for it and don’t hold back, life
will reward us beautifully for our courage and for taking action.
That has been my beautiful experience.
What if you loved all humans as your pet loves you? What if
you loved yourself as your pet loves you? How would your life be
different if you loved without condition?
Again, animals remind us what is important: play, being
present, love. Animals don’t think about the future. They don’t
worry about tomorrow. They are happy for no reason! In our
pursuit of success and money, we lose sight of the simple things
and stop living. Most Western societies measure success with
money. I am an international person with two passports, Italian
and American. I have seen, met and befriended hundreds of
thousands of people from all over the world. In my experience,
some of the happiest and healthiest people are not the richest. I
have met some unhealthy and lonely monetarily rich people. The
happiest and healthiest people in my life take time to smell the
roses, accept what is and continue loving themselves and other
beings, no matter what! They are balanced, and I believe in
At the start of this chapter, I said that ninety-nine percent of
my clients come to me because they want to make more money.
They come to me in a state of blaming anything and everyone
except themselves. With coaching, they realize that they are solely
responsible for their financial results and all their other life results
and that when the other areas of their life are out of in balance, it
prevents them from making more money. As they start working on
themselves and open up to nature, to animals, to the child within
them, they begin to know themselves better and make better
decisions—decisions from the heart, from a loving place instead of
from a place of darkness.
Again, how we relate to one thing is how we relate to everything.
People who can’t relate well to the most innocent creatures on
Earth ought to look inside themselves and ask why. Why are they
impatient? Why do they discriminate? Why are they angry? If
What if you loved yourself as
your pet loves you?
People who care for pets tend to be more grateful. They learn
this from their pets. Animals have always shown people gratitude
for feeding them, for saving them, for paying attention to them.
They never hold back affection and constantly show appreciation.
Can we say the same about our own actions, or about the humans
in our lives? I can’t always say so. Gratitude is a key to success in all
areas. And yet we often forget to express our thanks for the simple
pleasures, such as for being alive.
Pets love unconditionally. They don’t hold grudges. They
love everyone—poor or rich. They don’t care about material
possessions. They live for their owner’s affection. When I am
with my pets, I feel nothing but unconditional love. I feel it from
my animals to me, and I feel it toward my animals. In human
relationships, unconditional love is hard to come by. Many people
place conditions on love. They withhold love when they don’t feel
safe, or if they feel someone has not earned their devotion, or as
punishment. Worse, they do it to themselves.
My pets taught me unconditional love and unconditional
commitment. I had never experienced it before. Growing up in the
countryside in the Lake Region of Northern Italy, I have fostered
or adopted the animals nobody wanted. Born after the Chernobyl
nuclear disaster, some of them were deformed. Although they didn’t
look like the ideal pets I had always dreamed of—the purebred,
perfectly designed pets so many people want—inevitably, they
won my heart and taught me the meaning of true love. In this way,
they become ideal and perfect to me.
This is my life lesson: How many times do we want the
perfect career, the perfect partner? And we wait and wait and
don’t take action. We let life slip away waiting for the illusion of
perfection. From my pets I have learned that, if there is such a
thing as perfection, it is in the journey. With all the surprises and
If people can’t convey love, tranquility and peace to an animal, they
certainly can’t offer it to other humans.
In my life, the best lessons have come from nature. I have
seen animals win the hearts of fearful people, negative people,
and transform them for the better. Animals provide valuable
lessons—for free! When you rescue a pet without a home or
family—through foster or adoption—you rescue your own heart,
you rescue yourself. Some animals can be vegetarian, which makes
it very affordable to provide for them. Mine are! If you don’t have
a pet, or can’t foster or rescue one for some reason, please visit
and volunteer at an animal sanctuary. Spend time with animals
and in nature. Why not let animals teach you what you need to
learn? Then be ready to fall in love with all other beings and watch
