After it was all said and done, I was too skeptical about Landmark to do the program…then Time Magazine and BusinessWeek within a few weeks of one another had reviews about Landmark and what a great program it was—both articles praised it as a great program for business people.
At that point, I decided to give it a go. I figured, best case scenario, I would go to Landmark and it would be the best personal development program ever, worst case scenario, if it was a cult, I could at least infiltrate it and write a good story about what a cult it is.
I was initially planning on doing a different blog post with a review of each day; however, after the program, a thorough review of each day is unwarranted. Day one can be summarized as: What Happened VS Perception: The Stories that we Tell ourselves. The facts of the situation are what happened, and the story about why what happened, happened, is our perception.
The first few hours of day two was a combinations of people talking about their breakthroughs and Landmark pushing its other products. After Landmark selling its other programs and after the breakthroughsthey started talking about responsibility: I only drink because my dad drank…or my dad beat me.
It reminds me of the old story of twin brothers. These twin brothers had a very abuse and alcoholic father. Their dad used to beat them, neglect them, etc.
Both of the boys grew up. One of them became a very successful businessman who used his riches to help other people in abusive relationships. The other grew up to become a drug addict and alcoholic.
One brother used his upbringing to drive him to succeed and the other brother used his upbringing as an excuse to blame his father for all his short coming and problems. Day three started off with a LOT more selling of other Landmark programs.
Day three was also the day that was supposed to bring day one and day two together. There was a little bit of everything and they all benefited.
Imagine a world where people take personal responsibility for their actions. Day three was all about perpetuating this in our lives. Landmark gave people an opportunity to look at their issues from a different point of view.
If you have a serious issue in your life that you need to get worked out, Landmark is the company for you. If you have an issue with your mother or father, or a brother or sister, Landmark is for you. If someone important in your life passed away, Landmark is for you.
Landmark might not be for you, yet. He currently spends his free time with his wife and daughter, and volunteering for veteran charities.Oct 20, · The 10 Best Subliminal Ads Ever Made.
