One mastermind group which I have been working to build has been a health mastermind. It’s been talking and masterminding with other healthy individuals on ways can keep and maintain the best health and working on improving the health that have right now. Improving my strength, learning to become fitter and to overcome constant injuries as I continue to push myself in the role which I am doing its now become too much.
For a number of Years fear was running the mastermind groups that spoke with. At the same time I wanted to create a mastermind group and was unaware that had them in my own life. It was always the same whenever came to say an area that was out of the normal. Offering a suggestion and You would hear a fear answer like we can’t afford that or I don’t know if we can afford that. It’s taken a while now to learn to pickup on those comments and what is positive towards a goal or destructive.
We have all needed to learn to be immune to those fears and finding a mastermind group and participants like mentoring for free which encourage us all to think for ourselves and share our ideas. Our mastermind group is that battery which allows us to achieve our idea. For some of us it takes a while to learn who is supporting each area. 
Having found that someone might support one idea, but another You need others support. 
It may be a dream holiday and switching off to all the fear and rubbish which comes Your way from friends and family. A dream job, changing Your health, Working from home as an entrepreneur. You need to find that correct mastermind group. The team who supports that goal or dream.
That mastermind group happened to be the group which helped a beaten up, health challenged entrepreneur to get his health, life and family back on track. Learning along the way what he was able to do, when an area was too much for him. When his health was being impacted too badly and when to say that’s enough. The other mastermind group which helped me to become that husband and father who I am today. To be that awesome friend, husband and father that this family needed.
Over many years I learned a painful lesson in relation to a mastermind group. A group which encouraged problems but offered solutions within an environment of unhealthy relationships. The group worked like A dream when there was strong healthy individuals, but when the unhealthy was too many it decided into chaos. The hardest part of that lesson was learning to talk through what was going on, for many years I felt uncomfortable talking up and unsafe with anyone to form any mastermind group. It was the way learned growing up.
This amazing group of friends has helped me to grow as a person. A special thank you to my amazing friends here at mentoring for free, especially Ken Klemm and Linda and Michael Dlouhy for being there as those wonderful, loving, supportive, friends who I have needed more than anything in the world. Thank you so much to my amazing wife for life Jenny for Your own support and love and support.
Your friend and mentor for life,
Big hugs my friends who are my family
