Your success is directly impacted by the amount of time, energy that you generate and the support you create and accept in your life. One strategy to create the kind of on-going and sustainable support, as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and many other great dream builders have, is to form a Master Mind group. Although many years after Edison and Ford; it is believed that Napolean Hill officially coined the term, Master Mind, in his book. ‘Think and Grow Rich.’
The Master Mind group concept has been well researched and documented that the group of people; you surround yourself with have the power to influence your thoughts, feelings and actions. Thus, ultimately, the results you create in life are born out of both the goal and the structure to achieve it.
The premise of a Mastermind group is that the focused group energy amplifies everyone’s energy. As on supports others one is also supporting oneself. Thus, creating a synergistic support times the number of members. Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.”
It is paramount that you have a group of people in your life, whom you have chosen to collaborate with and who believe in you. Choose those people who believe in your possibilities, who stand for your ideals and greatness. Create a group of people who will remember who you are no matter what.
Deciding who, what, when, where and how for a Mastermind group is paramount. Who will the members be? What is the group’s purpose? What topics to establish for each meeting? How will the meetings be structured?
• Establish the group protocol – ground rules
• Establish a clear-cut purpose
• Assign leader for each meeting
• Establish meeting topic
• Decide how a group member will be eliminated as part of the group protocol
• Monitor member input – Everyone has synergistic input – When a member makes a difference everyone benefits
• Share success stories
The success of a Mastermind group is based on trust and harmony among the members. The process of building trust takes time and effort. Trust is built from sharing information and ideas, thus learning to accept opinions openly and willingly. If only polite comments are shared, little is gained, nor is the feedback valuable. Members will benefit most from a group that is willing to look at the difficult aspects of the process and content. Practical and useful feedback, ideas and opinions enriches everyone’s experience
The benefits of a well-organized and managed Mastermind group can be invaluable to your business and your life.
