Napoleon Hill, who was the author of the classic book on success, Think and Grow Rich, described a Mastermind as “a coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose. This form of cooperative alliance has been the basis of nearly every great success.”
Imagine having the support of other like-minded entrepreneurs, working together to reach a common goal: to have a profitable, rewarding and FUN business that feeds your soul AND impacts the world. I’ve been a member of different masterminds for over 5 years now, and I know from personal experience that the force of this “meeting of the minds” creates is literally unstoppable. Success truly becomes inevitable when you are propelled forward this way.
Specifically, here are three reasons why:
1) We become like those we frequently associate with.
You may have heard of the quote by the personal development guru Jim Rohn that says, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Think about it: when you spend a lot of time with people who complain, blame, criticize and generally have a very poor outlook on life, it’s very hard not to be dragged down right along with them.
In contrast, if you associate with motivated, success-minded people who are focused on achieving and doing great things, those are the same people who will usually want to take you right along with them. Surround yourself with that type of energy, and you cannot help but be lifted higher.
2) Without continual support and inspiration, an entrepreneur does not thrive.
In a mastermind, you will very often form sacred relationships with others in the group who will provide encouragement when you feel ready to throw in the towel, inspiration when you’re creatively tapped out, and a sounding board for your ideas, dreams and fears.
Entrepreneurship can get lonely and tough, and the connections you form in a mastermind can be the key to pushing forward in times where others would have called it quits.
3) Fast growth comes from exponential ideas, resources and perspectives.
We’ve all heard the concept of “two minds are better than one.” Now imagine 5, or 10, or 15 or more. The members of a mastermind bring their unique knowledge, experiences, connections and input to the table–and this is where the real “power of the group” becomes astounding.
In this structured environment of support, you benefit immensely from varied perspectives and feedback. You will also often get connected to resources and connections you may have never been able to access on your own.
You don’t have to walk this journey all alone. When you get the support and the plan and the specific how-to to implement it, what you’ll really be getting is the freedom to have the business you really want, the income you really want, and the lifestyle you really want.
And you DO want that, right?
