Do you have a business idea or career move or life change that you think about incessantly?
Do you noodle it around until you’ve looked at it from every possible angle?
Do you obsess over every detail, agonize over every possible eventuality?
Or maybe you already run a business or a division or a department and that’s what jerks your eyes open at 3 AM – wondering and worrying about what to do, what to do next, and what to do about what you’ve already done.
Believe it or not you’re not alone. Every single ambitious person who wants to accomplish something special goes through this every single day.
If you spend too much time in your personal echo chamber you start marching in lockstep to your own voice. You start believing your own hype, and you start getting high on your own supply. And while it’s great to have a singular vision and to follow it despite all evidence to the contrary, sometimes it’s a great comfort – and a wonderful asset – to be able to discuss your ideas and concerns with others who will both tell you the truth and hold you accountable to what you decide to do about it.
If any of these scenarios ring true, you need a group of people who have your back, care about your success, and are both honest and concerned enough to tell you the truth when you want to hear it.
And especially when you don’t.
A team like that – whether assembled casually or formally, from friends and business associates or simply like-minded professionals is called a Mastermind Group.
According to Forbes Magazine, Mastermind Groups are relatively new to most people, even though they were first created about 75 years ago. A Mastermind Group is designed to help you navigate through challenges using the collective intelligence of others.
Mastermind Groups can provide new ideas, help vet concepts, provide accountability, and expose you to the honest support that can help you and the people around you achieve success.
Do I practice what I preach?
I participate in three established groups and also put together ad hoc Mastermind Groups when I have a particularly vexing problem or potentially powerful opportunity to deal with. The strength of their collective thought and concern, together with the varied experiences of the participants, helps me benefit from thinking out loud and exploring different what-if scenarios. I am so enamored of the concept it dawned on me to create a series of moving masterminds as a business. I would invite the best minds around to get together and work with one another to challenge new ideas, expand concepts, strengthen suppositions, and test theories. Space is limited, as we cap the two daylong sessions at 16 people for a personal, one-on-one experience.
If you think you’d learn and grow by being part of a Mastermind Group, and even more importantly, if you think you can make a great contribution to others, we’d love to have you!
If you haven’t explored a Mastermind Group, you really don’t know what a great opportunity you’re missing. Once you get involved with the right group I know you’ll be thrilled by the meeting and the results. I know you’ll have a wonderful experience. And besides being so powerful, Mastermind Groups are also a lot of fun.
We’re planning our next program on September 6th and 7th and we’d love for you to join us.
