04 Oct Power of the mastermind
The power of a mastermind is created by the organised effort produced through the coordination of effort of 2 or more people who work towards a definite end in a spirit of harmony
Power may be defined as organised and intelligently directed knowledge.
When talking about accumulated experience in the concept of the Mastermind group the group in itself will have more power and more knowledge than any one individual can ever have – even if that individual is a polymath.
The difficulty an individual would have if it depended upon his own efforts in gathering knowledge and expressing it through plans into action will be a far harder and more difficult route than if he accesses the combined minds intelligence and knowledge of a mastermind group
Who are the Members?
Discrimination in the selection of your mastermind group is imperative. If you have the right combination of knowledge and mind within that mastermind group, those that stretch you, challenge you and have a greater or different knowledge then you within a subject matter.
You have untold potential within the power of the group and advantages may be created by any person for any person who surrounds themselves with the advice, council and personal cooperation of a group of people who are willing to lend you wholehearted support, which is the basis of a mastermind group
Mastermind groups that work together without Competition within the group achieve unparalleled results
No 2 minds ever came together without thereby creating a 3rd invisible intangible force which may be likened to a 3rd mind. Imagine that with 3 or 4 or 5 minds together? How powerful that 6th mind would be. Even before Napoleon Hill made the concept popular Andrew Carnegie attributed his entire fortune to the power he accumulated through his mastermind.
It is a well-known fact that a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery. Brains function in a similar fashion so a group of brains coordinated in the spirit of harmony will provide more thought energy than a single brain, just as a group of batteries provide more energy than a single battery.
If you take this analogy into Star Trek and The Borg the Borg had a combined brain and knowledge as did The Tree of Souls in Avatar.
The concept of social media and Facebook groups/forums also works with a Mastermind concept. You have a question, you pose it to a forum and if the forum is active and intelligent you will have a response within only a few moments. If you take that concept into a small group of like-minded people a Mastermind group that are personally selected with the same end in mind and with the same aim the results can be fabulous – remember Andrew Carnegie’s statement.
You can have a mastermind group with all its power and intelligence; it will be of no use if action is not taken!
Changes are usually brought about through well-conceived and carefully executed plans along with accountability.
These things can be achieved through an active and focussed Mastermind group.
Masterminds are a great way to learn and earn and I can highly recommend them. They can be free or paid, whichever choice you make they work when well-structured and managed otherwise they can become just a ‘chat shop’
A few thought provoking questions:
- How can you become part of a group?
- How can you set your own up?
- Who do you want in it?
Remember you need a mix and people who have different knowledge and skill sets to you even if they are all concerned with the same subject or a mix of different Business who can complement each other or people at the same level to support or people at different levels to challenge each other – the choice is yours if you set one up.
