Striking a Balance

Perhaps being a workaholic was the better way of being prior to the Forum, as at least while at work others came first.  During the day I truly was committed to service to others and fulfilled, then the night time came.  At night I was left with moments of being with myself & I would quickly try to fill with various activities.  I tried working out to playing piano for a few months at a time only to find myself bored and unfulfilled.  “There must be something,” was always the question that lead to the next “something.”

I will never forget the first day in the Forum as I stood at the microphone proclaiming a desire to take time out for myself after being asked why we were here.   On the stage stood an overly confident Dutch lady who I was convinced had nothing to offer me at that moment.   After all, I completed college with honors, medical school, and a residency in one of the most competitive residencies in the world. I listened to people as they came to the microphone quite captivatingly, which should have been a clue something was happening inside of me as outside of work I typically didn’t hear a thing people said.

After the start of the afternoon session I settled in and began to count the hours, “Nine more to go and four wasted.”. This was always my mentality since my first thoughts as a child.  Outside of my white coat,  Life was always about me first, then whoever else I could manipulate second, the rest fell in line wherever.   Sunday afternoon, around 4 pm, my life was over as I knew it because I got really present to “empty and meaningless.”

Out of that space of everything-nothing was created a life that was worth living on a level that I never dreamed possible.  Most importantly, I got that my family was the most precious jewel in the world and spoke to my mother and sisters about who they were and what was their life like.  My way of being with my family was transformed.

It was no longer me against them, or the rest of the world, it was me “with” them in the world.

Getting on the phone with all of my friends was the next task and catching those that I could at home if possible.  The conversations all began the same way “I have been being such an arrogant person and I have been making you wrong for….and I apologize.”  What happened every single time, with every single person, was magical.  The first line out of my best friends mouth was, “what did you do with Will?”.  A warm feeling overwhelmed me as I was present to a new possibility at the end of every call to complete with someone.

Being present with everyone in every moment since completing the curriculum is a golden opportunity to “listen for the gold,” re-create what’s shared, and then leave them in a world of possibility through the distinctions of the Landmark Forum.  My patients are now heard on a level they’ve never experienced before and my practice is growing faster than I can train new providers.  Now having completed the Communications Curriculum I am contribution to others through participating in the Landmark Assisting Program and will begin the Introductory Leadership Program in March 2012.  What I ultimately “got” from my participation in this education is the power to create others in the world as the possibility that they are, and not the limitations, or reasons, that they exist in.  I am an unstoppable force for transformation of the lives of others.

Starting a Ripple Effect

Sara JasminI did the Landmark Forum in March 2013 and I’m currently in the Breakthroughs Seminar Series.

A lot of interesting things have happened related to Landmark. First of all, all the self development work I’d been doing lead to an amazing experience prior to doing the forum. For the fourth time in my life, a fourth person was talking to me about doing Landmark. I quickly cut him off saying ‘that stuff isn’t for me, I’m fine’ etc..
and then I saw myself, outside of myself, like I was a bird in the corner ceiling of the room. I was being the kind of person that I don’t like dealing with; closed minded and not even open to checking out if something could be for me. Then I apologized to my friend and asked him to repeat what he was saying about Landmark and agreed to go to an info evening.

There I experienced another breakdown; “Oh man! This guy wants $720!!
I just saved to buy a car!” So I considered my options and I realized, within that short time, that what I was being presented could be that something I was looking for. After all the self development I was stuck; I’d known for months that I was at a point in my life that I had realized there was some kind of barrier in between me and me being the awesome person I knew I had the potential to be. So I thought, “try it out” and registered. It was one of the best decisions of my life!

I remember sitting there at the forum thinking, “I’ve spent $720 on this, I should participate like they say and get my moneys worth.” I dared myself to put my hand up and shared something I thought I had dealt with and ‘sorted out’ already. I got more than $720 worth! I was confronted and it was raw and painful but worth it, sooo worth it! I GOT something right then, my first breakthrough! I was one of the first in that forum to create a ripple effect which I later shared with the participants as an amazing “boomerang – domino” effect.

People were coming up to me and thanking me and sharing what THEY GOT out of ME SHARING. That in turn eventually, made me realize that I had the power to make a difference in other peoples’ lives. That was a fantastic breakthrough for me because my passion is to help others!!

That boomerang – domino effect hasn’t stopped since then! I continue to share and I continue to empower others and some of them don’t even realize that they then do the same for me!

One of the most coolest things about doing the forum is that once you ‘get it’ you don’t lose it. Then u see it play out in every area of your life. Doing the work, participating in the seminar, stepping up as a leader in a group from the seminar, is teaching me how to incorporate what I’ve learned into other areas of my life. That is how those other areas are transforming into more happiness and more success. I realized, Landmark is not something you just do like a course at university and view it as something separate from other areas of your life. Thinking of it that way, limits your possibilities for happiness and success! Embracing it is giving me joy, peace, success and endless possibilities!

As for those barriers, they are now just breakdowns that I see as a challenge to overcome with what I’m learning because I know there is a fantastic breakthrough waiting for me on the other side!

Don’t get me wrong, Landmark is not about ‘fixing’ and it’s not about making me into someone that I’m not. It’s about getting access to what is already inside me – everything I need to be successful and happy.
