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.
