It was the beginning of August 2006, and being the college student that I was, I stuck to a tight budget. One of my dear friends had mentioned a seminar a few months prior. He attended this seminar as a teen, went to some follow up seminars, and in turn accredited his amazing character and productivity from what he had learned there.
The seminar had caught my interest immediately, as I was already submersed into the world of personal development, and this info coming from one of my mastermind group members was well received. It took me a few months before I made the monetary commitment ($440) to attend this 3.5 day seminar.
My Review: Life altering, phenomenol experience from which there is no turning back.
I haven’t heard of any seminars like that! From what I understand they don’t spend a penny on advertising, but they always fill up seminars with casual groups of 75-250. It all works on word-of-mouth.
So what did you get out of it? I got that in order for me to stay commited to myself, my actions, and my true goals I must approach them with a character of unshakable integrity.
Is integrity the only thing they teach? No, not by a long-shot. The great thing about this Landmark is that everyone can get something unique out of the experience. A good way to approach it is by bringing something with you that you want to “change”. They don’t like the word change, they prefer to say that you create possibilities for yourself.
Independent research claims, that Landmark graduates report major positive results in the following areas:
- The quality of their relationships.
- The confidence with which they conduct their lives.
- The level of their personal productivity.
- The experience of the difference they make.
- The degree to which they enjoy their lives.
They can add me to that statistic, because I have personally experienced each of these points.
Ok, I’m curious, tell me what it is!
What I have been sharing with you is my experience with The Landmark Forum, a seminar of Landmark Education. This organization is based all over the world with many convenient times and locations. They offer really neat follow-up seminars on a variety of subjects, that run $110 for 10, once-a-week, sessions. They’re really professional and nice, the way a “company” should be run. I promise, they aren’t a cult! They really are doing a great thing. You can even attend a free introduction near you and see if you like the atmosphere.
Give it a try (or not). I get nothing out of this but the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to get the experience of your life.
