Part 1 of our Utilizing the Mastermind Principles Blog Post helped you identify your DEFINITE PURPOSE. Now it’s time to take action in the direction of that desire and purpose. Not sure what action you should take? Napoleon Hill had the perfect solution, The Mastermind Group, which he defined in Think & Grow Rich as “a friendly alliance with one or more persons who will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose.”
Hill acknowledged that any successful action plan will require certain specialized knowledge that we may not possess within ourselves. No one person is going to be an expert or authority on all aspects of business. But, that doesn’t mean that this specialized knowledge cannot be acquired. Hill envisioned the Mastermind Group to be the well from which that specialized knowledge could be drawn. Each member of the Mastermind Group would leverage their experience and education and that of the group to elevate all of their respective positions and achieve greater success.
Hill pointed to the example of the great industrialist, Andrew Carnegie, in support of the Mastermind Group. “Andrew Carnegie stated that he, personally, knew nothing about the technical end of the steel business; moreover, he did not particularly care to know anything about it. The specialized knowledge which he required for the manufacture and marketing of steel, he found available through the individual units of his Master Mind Group.”
5 Benefits You Can Gain from a Master Mind Group?
1 – Tap into the experience and skills of others! You don’t have to be an expert in all areas of business. The Mastermind group provides access to the specialized knowledge of the other members of the group including marketing, administration, networking, etc. A Mastermind Group is the perfect place to find new ways to jump-start your business.
2- Get “unstuck” and gain a new perspective! Often other people can see within us that which we cannot see within ourselves. Certain choices and options may be obvious to the group, but escape you in the present moment. Brainstorming within the group can provide fresh perspectives and options that you would not have otherwise considered.
3- Increase confidence in your decisions! No one has to be their own support network. The Mastermind Group is a safe and supportive environment for vetting your most crucial decisions. The members can become an instant and invaluable support network!
4- Validate that you are taking the right actions to achieve your goals! You can leverage the combined knowledge and experience of the Mastermind Group to validate your current or future actions or to tweak them for greater success.
5 – Find a sense of shared endeavor with others in the same position! Chances are that you are not alone in the struggles and challenges you are facing right now. Sometimes knowing you’re not the only one can make all the difference. And there is no better way to boost your passion and desires than by sharing them and feeding off the passions of others as well. Mastermind Group members tend to energize both themselves and the group as a whole by sharing those passions.
