Preparing For The Landmark Forum

Education vs Experience
There are several milestones of great significance in my life, and one of them was the night that I paid a complete stranger a few thousand pounds to join the Success Principles Coaching Course, run by Jack Canfield and his team. I always have a sickly feeling in my stomach, followed by a low, when I spend a significant amount of money and this night was no different. But despite the usual feelings of nausea I knew it was a good investment, or as Robert Kiyosaki would say, “good debt.”

Next week I am going to be crossing another action off my bucket list when I travel to Monte Carlo in the South of France. I am going to be working at my first European Poker Tour’s Grand Final and I am really excited about the ten days I will be spending there. When I return to the UK I have a week to focus on some Needyhelper material before I head to London and the Landmark Forum.

The Success Principles coaching really stirred up my energy and helped transform my life. With this in mind I am really excited about the four-day course, which many say, is a life changing experience. I am attending for two reasons. The first is to learn and to grow, to keep my fire burning and to aid my personal continuous improvement. The second is because my very special girlfriend attended a Landmark Forum in the United States.

Although I think it is important to have your own space, within your relationships, I also believe it is important to share experiences. It gives you a common bond, drives debate and conversation and a feeling of mutual understanding and empathy. I spoke to my girlfriend everyday when she attended the Landmark Forum and I saw amazing emotional changes in her. It was such a shame that I couldn’t be in the same forum, to hold her and be there for her, and so I decided the next best thing would be to attend one myself. Not only will I be able to share my new experiences with my girlfriend, but I will also be able to share everything with you. I anticipate many changes in my life when I come through this process, changes which hopefully you can also benefit from.

If you are serious about making changes in your life. If you want to become a better person and realise your true potential, then courses like the Landmark Forum and The Success Principles, are an excellent way to help you achieve these goals and much, much more.

If you are in the London Landmark Forum when I attend (11th, 12th, 13th & 15th May) then please stop me and say hi!

Have you undertaken any training that you believe has transformed your way of thinking…maybe your life? Share the details with us.


In order for your life to improve you cannot just grip your rabbit’s foot tight and hope for the best. You need to take good strong positive action and training is a good way of doing this. Unfortunately, people manage to find a whole host of excuses for not attending these types of events – mainly funds.

I cannot stress highly enough how important these sorts of events are if you are serious about change. You need to look beyond the pound sign and realise that you cannot put a price on experience.

Remember: Stop Talking – Start Acting – One Life

  1. I’m looking forward to hearing your report on this Landmark Forum, Lee. By the way, I have been to Monte Carlo and in the Casino (not to play, just as a tourist/observer – I’ve never gambled). I imagine the weather will be better at this time of the year. I was there in August during the hottest summer Europe had seen in over 50 years. I couldn’t walk the beach at Nice for more than 5 minutes before feeling scorched. I hope you have a good 10 days in Monte, and a life-changing experience in London.

    • Diane,

      You seem to have been everywhere! I reckon you have had, and continue to have, a wonderful life. I will be writing about the Landmark Forum a lot because I believe great things will happen during and after that educational event. I will write about Monte Carlo in my Friday post of next week.

      Take care of yourself.


  2. Lee, I really haven’t traveled that much. I took a 3-week tour of Europe (6 countries), a tour in Western Canada and a few places in the US. I used to dream of traveling all over, but finances didn’t allow it. The European trip was back in 1971 and cost $895.00. Can you believe it? I had to borrow the money from the bank to do it, but I never regretted it. I wouldn’t do that today, but then the cost would be much higher, too. There are places I would like to return to, especially Switzerland, and a few other places I would like to see – Austria, Wales, England, Scotland, Maui, but it’s not such a strong desire any more. I’m content to stay home.

  3. The church I went to for about 24 years began in Wales after the 1904 revival and there were quite a few Welsh people there. One of the characters in my novel is from Wales and I have given some background – e.g. that he came from Hay-on-Wye in Powys; his parents were owners of a book store; there is a castle ruin and a legend about Moll Walbee the Giantess; and quite a few other references to Wales. It has always fascinated me, as it did the main character in my book.

  4. Thanks – I think. 🙂 Most of the Welsh people I knew didn’t speak the language. A couple of them did but I never heard them speak it.

    • Very few people speak it and yet it is still compulsory in the lower levels of school education. Such a waste of time. Replace it with lessons in life I say.
