Mastermind: The Secret of the Ultra Successful

In Napoleon Hill’s, Think and Grow Rich, the author defines mastermind as: “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” In simple terms, mastermind are individuals who you seek out to help you reach a particular goal. These individuals tend to have more experience, knowledge and may have even accomplished the goals that you are seeking to achieve.

Finding People for Your Mastermind

Finding a mastermind group is not always easy. People that are high achievers are highly sought after and often have limited time on their hands to mentor others.  Specific industry networking events are great ways to be introduced to top performers. The great thing about these events is that you can meet a ton of people in a short amount of time. Get business cards from people that you may want to add to your mastermind. Remember you do not always need to speak to someone for an hour regularly for them to add value to your life. However, let them know your goals and ask them if it is okay for you to contact them at some point during the week for 15 minutes or if it possible to grab lunch together to pick your brain on a subject.

Why It Is Important to Have a Mastermind

Having a mastermind is highly effective because two or more brains working on a single problem often produces better results than a single brain alone. Two or more people are able to see an issue from different viewpoints and experiences therefore you can analyze a situation very clearly. Having a deep understanding of a situation will help you formulate sound plans to reach your objectives.

The Influence of a Mastermind Group in My Life

Speaking from personal experience, I was doing well in my life by myself. However, when I sought after the right people and improved my mastermind by surrounding myself with big thinkers and people that were going places, my level of success just shot up, I mean sky rocket. Certain goals and challenges that I was working on for days, months and years struggling, after the aid of the mastermind I was able to enjoy a lot more of the process, learn different perspectives, challenge my own thinking, and accomplish outstanding results in almost half the time.
