About ten years ago I heard about a MasterMind that was being created for what I’m calling the “superstar speakers.” It was put together by the top seven or eight money-makers in my industry.
I wanted into that club. Badly.
Or so I thought.
So I signed up for the three-day intensive MasterMind group and spent a whole lot of money to be there.
As I saw it at the time, I was the only “nobody” in the room. I discovered a lot in those three days.
Things such as:
It takes the full three days to get fully immersed.
Immersions are the best – it’s where you develop zealots for life.
Despite my initial concerns, all the other people in the room were actually just like me – they all had problems, they dealt with curve balls and obstacles and they all needed solutions.
I was shocked to discover that a few of these so-called experts weren’t nearly as smart as I previously thought they were.
I was shocked to discover that even more of them were a lot smarter than I could ever have imagined.
I was shocked to discover that many of them didn’t walk their talk.
I was relieved to discover that most of them did.
But I also learned that none of that mattered – every single one of them had interesting ideas and unique perspectives. And each had really great ideas that came from years of trial and error.
I realized I didn’t need to be in that “superstar speakers clubhouse,” but that I wanted to be there.
I walked out of that room with nine new relationships – at least half of whom joined my personal board of directors. I spoke to one of them this week.
The good news was that I walked out with 30 pages of notes and at least 100 new ideas.
The bad news was that I never got to implement all of the things I learned.
The good news was that if I only implemented 20 of my new ideas I could earn a cool million dollars in the next year.
I don’t typically go back and review my notes from workshops I’ve attended, but I do go back to my MasterMind notes – FREQUENTLY!
Something else – I admitted my vulnerabilities and my failures and gained very supportive new friends.
They all made me “wealthy” – in their friendship, support, accountability, and letting me know I wasn’t alone.
To this day I still have my board of directors and friends and support people.
It’s the BEST THING I ever did to improve myself and my business. In fact, I realized that if I took all the business events I’ve gone to in the past and rolled them up into a big ball, the benefit of that combo ball would be less than 25% the size of my new MasterMind ball.
The MasterMind LIVES – some 10 years later!! And I’m convinced that there is NO BETTER WAY to move forward FAST!
That’s why I’m putting together a new mastermind to move towards certainty in uncertain times. I’d love to have you participate. If you think this might interest you, please click HERE.
