I just want to say I am very grateful to have met so many great people - there was this happy bubbliness in the air that was very supportive.
To whoever felt "miserable" at the end (I have a strong feeling it is many people not one) - please understand that something inside of you got activated during this program - which is part of the program's intention.
A lot of people go to seminars (Landmark, etc) and think the point of them is to get all rah-rah "Woo-Hoo!!!" as if you're riding the peak of life like you just won the Super Bowl. (Don't get me wrong Landmark's technology is extremely powerful and effective, I just don't care for all the salesmanship or hype)
Life does not work like that - it is not meant to be an ongoing series of Super Bowl trophy moments. Anytime you see that Super Bowl trophy moment being glorified, somebody is trying to sell you something.
As for me, I was very
emotionally activated & challenged for much of the program. (I have long been working through one specific pattern, that keeps flaring up at times when I am on the crest of having a massive opening......anyway...) I didn't even get up on stage to sit on the hot seat or anything like that. And I certainly didn't feel I was carrying around the Super Bowl trophy at the end.
Yet I had fun. I got nuggets (probably the biggest epiphany was, "the key to building power, like the key to building muscle, is to rest between workouts!" That's not an exact quote but you get the principle). (the second biggest was Steve & Erin opening up so beautifully about their relationship - I bought the DVD's just for that, it will be worth the $100 to show my future partner a working example of a successful relationship, and how each person dealt with the sensitive turning points)
And, I made contacts - great people whom I want to stay in touch with, and also successful people whom I would be smart to stay in touch with - in most cases the people I met had both qualities. The networking at an event like this can change your life at least as effectively as the content.
This didn't feel like "the highlight of my life". It felt like practice. Like I went from twice/week of martial arts, to a 3-day martial arts intensive. And now I'm back to my routine, hopefully boosted ahead by the intensive. Like the martial artist, my commitment was the same before, during, and after this workshop.
Going back to whoever felt miserable at the end, I've finished seminars in the past & felt I got absolutely nothing from it, and felt much much worse than before it began. It happens.
Maybe you're going through a dark night of the soul and the shift just hasn't completed yet. Maybe some of your myths about reality are getting challenged and your ego-mind is panicking. Or maybe this is not the right environment for you. Deciding your next move is where intuition comes into play. For me, I ask God to guide me - not the church, not Steve Pavlina, not some enlightened guru, not my spirit guides, and not Jesus - but God directly. Why not go straight to the top?
Anyway, if you can, follow intuition and not logic or emotions. Then you will be guided in the right direction.
Sorry all for the long post...I ramble when I'm tired from red-eye flights.
