“As a concept or an experience?”

Personal Development is only one of a handful of things that got me and my networking career straightened out. There are quite a few people who started out as coaches and mentors and  who are now friends that  are equally worthy of mention.

A turning point of my career was when I downloaded and read Success In 10 Steps. That eBook opened a worldview of network marketing that literally had me slapping my forehead and dropping my jaw.

All that and more led me to a bit of education and training that I discovered last December while researching more personal development resources. While surfing the web I came across the phrase “not informative  but transformative learning.”

I had discovered the Landmark Forum and since then an entirely new way of seeing and being has been available to me.

As a way of illustrating how the Forum works, take this very brief conversational exchange that helped me own more deeply the solution to a chronic energy drain.

The presenter was capping off a conversation to which a participant answered, “I got it.” The presenter quickly but pointedly asked, “As a concept or an experience?”

Allow me to translate. “You say you understand but how did you take what I just gave you? As some passing idea that will be bumped out of you mind’s consciousness within the next 20-30 seconds, or as an experience you are now having on several levels of consciousness, none more important than in your heart?”

Those who have been reading my posts will recall this post of mine


The ‘heart – mind’ battle is one I have been fighting for some time. If you have too you just might appreciate this exchange as much as I do:

“I got it.” 

“As a concept or an experience?”
