I want to talk to you about a mastermind alliance and how important it is in your life to move forward to great things in your life. In a mastermind alliance 1+1=3 because of the synergy the group creates. You’ll learn new ideas and you’ll get more things done quickly and more effectively.
The successful people all have a commonalty and that is they have a network of likeminded people that hold them accountable and help keep them focused.
Start a Mastermind Group
“A mastermind alliance is built of two or more minds working actively together in perfect harmony toward a common definite objective”, Napoleon Hill. A great tool used by successful people all over the world is the mastermind group. Napoleon Hill wrote about this years ago in his book Think and Grow Rich. A mastermind group can help you focus the energy from the group into your goals. It is up to you to do the work, but being part of the mastermind group will help you harness the success, ideas and energy of the group for your success.
Mastermind Group Step #1
Look for the people that are where you want to be in your life. Most people are not in a mastermind group and would love the idea. Successful people always want to help others with their goals too. Make a list of the successful people you know or the successful people you want to know. The local lawyer, banker, publisher, business owner, etc. Try to find successful people that would have an interest in your specific goal. If you plan to start a business find a business owner to join in your mastermind group.
Make your list now.
The best size for a mastermind group is no more than 6 people. So make a list of 12 – 20 successful people you would like to have in your mastermind group with the ones you want the most at the top of the list.
Mastermind Group Step #2
To get you started and rolling along, get your script together and read through it several times before you contact your selected people. Write your own script and personalize it to meet your needs.
Hello, ______. My name is ___________. I’m a local business owner and am in the process of forming a mastermind group. I know I’m just starting this group, but I have some interest from others in the community. I believe by forming this mastermind group we will access new resources and find great solutions we may have not thought of. It’s my feeling that you would be a tremendous contribution to the group and I have you at the top of my list. Could I put you down on the final list of members to this Mastermind group? This group will have 5-6 other community leaders and business owners to contribute their ideas and energy.
Mastermind Group Step #3
Find a place you all could meet on a regular basis. Dedicate enough time in that meeting you could all contribute to each other’s goals or issues. Have each person set a goal to work toward before the meeting. Get input from all the others present at the meeting. From that meeting forward hold each other accountable for the goals from the prior meeting. The feedback and suggestions will be helpful and will benefit you as you continue to grow your business and work on your goals.
If Donald Trump woke up in the morning to find he was flat broke, and he had nothing but his experience, judgment and desire, he would still be very rich again in no time flat. I bet he could be a millionaire within 24 hours. The biggest advantage he would have would be his millionaire mindset and his relationships. Relationships are a very important part of your life.
If you would like to start your own mastermind alliance you now have the outline to do so. The hard thing is that even though you have the outline and get started you will have to facilitate the group and it may seem overwhelming when you start.
Years ago my first mastermind group was made up from a Psychologist, Mechanic, Office Manager, Sales Person and a Golf Pro. We started out slow but we did accomplish much. The Psychologist facilitated the group and she moved away after about 6 – 7 months and all the other people were afraid to start another group. So, I had to go out and move on my own.
In the beginning you must be patient and persistent when you start on your own.
