Think and Grow Rich Lessons - Chapter 10: Power of the Mastermind
"The 'Mastermind' may be defined as: 'Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.'"
In my past experiences, I may have just not completely understood that everything that was accomplished of great measure in my life was not by my doing alone. I was surrounded with others, all focused on one accord with a common goal. I guess in my naive youth, I just figured we hit our goals because we were highly skilled and chalked it off soley to effort. Now, knowing what I have learned of the Power of the Mastermind, it all makes so much sense.
More than anything, I am able to see the manifestation of a living, breathing mastermind group in Mentoring for Free. It's quite phenomenal how the energy flows between us all, even when we are not all meeting together. We all have a definite purpose that is to help others and share what has been shared with us. I can't explain how everything just seems to work out for us all... all of us that are ALL in that is.
Each one of us has our own, special contributing factors to our group. We have those blessed with the gift of gab, the thinkers, the problem solvers, the nurturers, the computer wizard, and so on. Each member of the mastermind brings their own unique element.
Since becoming involved with the Mastermind known as Mentoring for Free, I have found things coming with not much real effort... instead, by the power of positive thinking and believing along with the cooperation of the group... everything seems to just flow as I become READY for it. I learn new skills each day from the calls, I find myself wanting to be a better person daily, and I work to mimic the attitude of the leaders in our group. The power is such that it permeates into my soul. I find myself taking on traits of those that I admire in our group, and I do my best to contribute when my schedule allows. Each day, I find myself walking as a successful person that others look up to as well.
The mastermind is not only about growing businesses or earning piles of money... no, these are bi-products of the personal development that we cultivate within ourselves and projecting to others in the group. I have found myself being a better friend, a better husband, a better dad, and a better leader inside and out of my business. The can all be attributed to the mastermind and our amazing pursuit of excellence.
The Mastermind to me is everything I had lacked in the past to be successful because I either did not realize it was happening or it just did not exist in my endeavors. Now, I embrace it and appreciate it in everything that it is!
