did the Landmark Forum in November, 2000. I was introduced by Sheree
Simpson-Jordan, along with Shelly Leslie and Lisa Thomas. I went to an
Introduction to hear about the Landmark Forum and resisted it completely. I
wanted to see the course content all “laid out and structured” and I
had to know what “tangible item” I would get out of taking the
course. At first I thought it was something like Amway and did not trust
anyone about doing it. I thought it cost too much and took too much time
away from the “fun” I wanted to have.
For a month, I struggled with the
question, should I do it, or not? Finally, my friend Sheree said, “What
have you got to lose?" She even said she would pay for it if I got
nothing from it. Wow, I thought! No one would say that if they didn't
believe it would make a difference for me. What could I say at that
point? I had nothing to say, no where to go, no more excuses. I signed
up. Immediately, I got a sense that I signed up for new life! I didn’t
know what it was then, but something new was about to happen – I just
had a feeling.
shudder to think what would have become of me if I had chosen to stay on
the same old "this is as good as it gets" road of life. I was
on a narrow, treacherous path leading to nowhere. The worst of it -- I
wasn’t even aware that I was robbing myself and the people in my life
of all that I can possibly be! Now, I do have a say on how my life goes.
I see how my old ways of being resigned don't have to continue! I can
cause who I am! The most lasting breakthrough I have had is to realize,
that even in those moments when I do not love myself, there are others
who love me, that I too can receive and give love. This new way of being
has also opened up doors to a spiritual path -- knowing and loving God
on a profound level and inviting Him into my life!
my boyfriend, did the Landmark Forum right after me, and we both went on
to do the Advanced Course together. In this course I saw that I hang onto
the notion of “being saved and taken away by a knight on a white horse”……..
It was a way of being that I used in order to escape from reality, which
of course, left me nowhere to go. Having seen it as "a story and
nothing more" opened up a new realm of being for me. It enables me
to love others for who they are, not for what they bring to me! It was a
turning point in our relationship, where we both have grown individually
and as a couple. It is just great.
In my past, I went from one job to the
next - never quite fulfilled. When I did the Landmark Advanced Course, I got
the courage to start my own business. My company offers a great service
to anyone who would like to have a meeting or event at a hotel,
conference center or other venue. We'll find the location, review the
contract, and negotiate savings, etc. As a result, I now do what I love
and I am truly delighted with my choice.
I love the Landmark Seminars as it
continues to leave me with an overwhelming sense of freedom and growth
every time. I love the community of Landmark Forum graduates where I can
call on anyone in the community and instantly create my own
transformation inside of a conversation!
