5 reasons why you need to join a Mastermind Group
Mastermind Groups are becoming more and more popular as business leaders recognise the value of peer-to-peer mentoring, but they are not new.
The concept was first presented in the early 1900s by Napolean Hill is his books ‘The Law of Success’ and ‘Think and Grow Rich’. Hill described the Mastermind principle as, “coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a spirit of harmony… No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind”, also known as, the Mastermind.
It was Hill’s many conversations with Andrew Carnegie that inspired the concept of Mastermind. Carnegie attributed much of his phenomenal success to a peer group of trusted advisors.
The power of Mastermind is mighty
Have you ever been part of a Mastermind Group?
If no, then you will not have experienced the mighty benefit of being connected with other motivated people, who bring insight from different backgrounds and experience, who inspire you to achieve success and are dedicated to holding you accountable. It really is quite powerful.
If you need further convincing, here’s 5 key reasons why you need to join a mastermind group:
As Hill recognised, a Mastermind Group is all about synergy. As a participant, you will learn from the collective intelligence of the group. Their perspective, knowledge and experience will help you overcome challenges and advance your own projects and goals more quickly.
Growth Ultimately participants of a Mastermind Group raise the bar by challenging each other. As facilitator, I help the group dive deeply into business discussions. The participants act as devil’s advocates and empower you to make wise decisions. You will not only think bigger, but your confidence will grow.
Support A Mastermind Group provides a trusted, non-judgemental environment where you can seek objective advice and feedback. Participants are motivated not only by accelerating their own growth, but by the reward of helping others solve problems and overcome challenges.
Accountability Your fellow participants will keep you on track and hold you accountable in moving your projects and goals forward. Just knowing that you have a regular, scheduled meeting will drive you to make progress.
The very essence of a Mastermind Group is a collective of like-minded professionals. It is likely that you will develop strong and lasting relationships with the participants in your group. This will result in extending your network by sharing connections, resources and even doing business together.
You already know that two heads are better than one when it comes to solving a problem or creating a result, so imagine if you met on a monthly basis with a permanent group of like-minded professionals who act as your board of objective and trusted advisors. Imagine the impact could this have on your effectiveness and growth?
My question now is; why are you not part of a Mastermind Group?
