I Had No Idea What Was Going To Happen. - Bruce Turkel

Sharing is caring!

Not very long ago – sometime in early to mid-April – it seemed as if almost everyone I know was calling and telling me they were how concerned they were. Covid. Unrest. Lockdown. Politics. The economy. Despite their concerns, the common word they all seemed to use was “uncertainty.”

After hearing different versions of the same story a few times, I wanted to do something to help. I decided that I would put together a MasterMind group to see if I could help people regain certainty in their lives.

Sure, I’d facilitated plenty of face-to-face MasterMind groups before, but this was my first virtual group. I had no idea how well the group would work over Zoom. I also had no idea how much my life – and the lives of 20 other people – were about to transform.

But now that we’re nearing the end of this first 12-week program, I’m discovering just how important this endeavor has been.

12 weeks ago 20 people logged on; some were lost, some were worried, and some were simply curious to discover what they were going to do next.

And now, 12 weeks later, they’ve earned much more than certainty – they’ve gained a wealth of assets – beginning with lifelong trusted relationships with each other, a treasure chest of fresh new perspectives and new ideas, concerned accountability partners, and a whole lot more.

By week three or four I was watching something I’d never seen before: The relationships and bonds that were developing were extraordinary! The support and the collaboration and the trust – and HONESTY was like nothing I’d ever previously witnessed! It was incredible!

Every member was thinking BIGGER, gaining critical insights, and getting TRUE HONEST feedback! Sometimes it was good just to get the confirmation that they were on the right path… And sometimes it was tough love that really challenged them. Sometimes they didn’t like what they were hearing. Yet anytime that happened, by the next week’s meeting they were thanking people and were very happy that they got completely new visions – and challenges!

Look… I get it… MasterMinds aren’t for everyone. But I’ve just never forgotten what Think and Grow Rich author Napoleon Hill said about them – how critically important MasterMinds really truly are – and how most super-successful people are members of MasterMind groups. THAT’S why I’m telling you all this.

The results from my first virtual MasterMind group are living proof that I need to launch another group right away. Based on what we experienced, the new group is already filling up with people from group one. And I know it will transform lives and create more really incredible relationships.

Thanks for allowing me to tell you a great story with 20 very happy endings – make that 21 including me! I had wonderful surprises and gained 20 new friends – all coming out of this program a whole lot better than we went in! Together we gained incredible insights, ideas and assets, and most importantly – we built powerful relationships that will last a lifetime.

You can do the same thing. Right HERE.

    Hi Bruce,
    Just saw your video. Nice. Good idea, and this will work, because it is needed even after September when the lockdown starts to ease up. Suggestion: Keep the videos under 3 minutes, maybe even 2 minutes. The attention span is short……. It is 9am in California, and I have already finished a 1 hour video meeting on Zoom. You guessed it…… Relax, Visual Meditation…. Similar to Napoleon Hill . Banu Dadlani

    Become more uplifting, smarter and sought after by adopting a mutuality mindset. More than money, talent, or your number of contacts, your capacity to create mutuality with others can transform you into a sought-after Opportunity Maker with whom people most want to align. Adopt a mutuality mindset by asking follow-up questions + seeking sweet spots of mutual interest in conversations to attract diverse allies, then collectively able to see more sides of a situation & make smarter decisions faster – be specific to boost credibility & memorability about a potential problem or opportunity.
    Be the glue that sticks the right teams together to solve problems or seize opportunities sooner and be better together.
    Network better: Seek sweet spots of mutual interest early in conversation. Over time you will then have cultivated diverse allies and thus be able to collectively see more sides of a situation and thus be able to make smarter decisions faster about a potential problem or opportunity. Such experiences draw us closer and more aware of our complementary talents we can provide each other and be motivated to do so.
    Get specific sooner: the specific detail, example or story can prove a general conclusion yet not the reverse. Yet it is more difficult together specific without working on self-clarity – what most matters to you.
    Yet it is worth your self-examination because your specificity boosts your credibility and memorability, thus more likely to have your messages shared with others. Recognize that healthy relationships are based, not in a quid pro quo but an ebb and flow of mutual support over time.
    Always seek to bring out others’ better side: One way: when the spotlight’s on you, specifically shine it on others.
