All successful people have one thing in common. They never go at it alone. They will always have a team beside them to help them out. That ‘team’ is called the Mastermind Group. Forming a group is easy. But knowing why you should form a Mastermind Group is where the challenge lies.
A lot of people know they should do it or that but the reason they fail to do it is because they do not know what motivates them to do it. So, what is in st ore for you after you have formed a solid Mastermind Group? What are the benefits?
Here are a list of 8 reasons/benefits of a Mastermind Group:
Emotional support – You will receive encouragement from your team no matter how you perform. It’s valuable because if you face adversity often enough without support, you will call it quit. And losers as you know, are quitters.
Creative Ideas – We should always remind ourselves that no man is an island. We can’t come out with the best ideas. But if we have a team, anyone can come up with a creative idea. And the idea is not entitled to that person alone; it’s the team’s idea. Wouldn’t it make your life easier?
Positive Feedback – Besides emotional support, we also need a dose of positive feedback. Feedbacks works like a mirror, it shows you your strength and weaknesses and how you can improve them. Your group should be able to give honest sincere feedback and suggestion so that the whole team will grow.
Leverage of lessons – Everyone have different experiences in life. With a group you can share these experiences and put them to work for you. How much value will you get if everyone tells you for example how they think customer service should be like.
Leverage of Resources – With lessons, comes resources. It will take a long while, if its possible to gather every single resource you need to work on your project. However, if you have 5 people or 7 people in your group, you leverage on their resources to get the things you need done.
Developing Relationships – A big part of having a Mastermind Group is developing a good relationship with your teammates. You will feel that you are a part of something special. And I believe if you start to feel this way, the other team members will also start to feel the same.
Personal Growth – No matter what your status is in the Mastermind Group, you will develop self-mastery and leadership skill. As long as you have the skills or knowledge to provide to the group, you will have the opportunity to support and coach other group members.
Increasing your chance for Success – Isn’t that what you want? Achieving your goals? With a Mastermind Group, you increase your chance of success in whatever you do. Just remember that no one will do anything for you for free, so make sure you have the understanding that they help themselves by helping you.
No matter what are you trying to achieve in life, the easiest and fastest way of achieving it is to form your own Mastermind Group. And now you have 8 reasons why you should do that.
