The concept of Mastermind Groups was first discussed by Napoleon Hill in his famous book, "Think And Grow Rich." In his research of the most successful people of his time, Hill found that a key difference that made people successful was being involved in Mastermind Groups.
Masterminding involves bringing people together, often with a Coach, with different experiences and ideas to collaborate, brainstorm, and provide support to help the participants achieve their goals. It connects you with others in their success, makes you accountable for achieving your goals, and provides you with your own personal experienced “life board of directors”.
Here Five Benefits to a Mastermind Group:
1. Experience breakthroughs in your personal and professional life
An excellent mastermind group has the capacity to improve and grow the lives of each member. And as one member experiences breakthroughs in their life, other members may also benefit directly or indirectly. The adage “a rising tide lifts all boats” is very much apt in this situation.
2. See problems much clearer
This is two-fold. First by verbalizing and sharing your problems with others, the problem automatically seems a lot more lighter than before. And with the help of others who are, unlike you, unburdened by bias and baggage, the solution is much easier to find.
Second, the explainer effect comes into play. As you explain problems to someone else, you oftentimes see the solution present itself in front of you. Mainly because as you discuss the problem, you also dissect the details within. And as you do so, you unavoidably make new analysis and come up with a better appreciation of the problem.
3. Be more accountable for your own success
In a mastermind, you share your dreams and goals to the other participants. Through the use of proper discourse, and with inputs from other members, and the expert guidance of a coach leading it, your commitment to your success is further cemented. Also the more people are aware of your plans, the higher your commitment becomes. These people become your accountability partners, assigned to guide and remind you to keep on the path of your dreams. But ultimately though, your success is in your own hands.
4. Increase your mental and physical well-being
It has been observed that successful mastermind groups tend to have members with a healthier mental state. By achieving goals together as a group and spending time with people you are comfortable with brings positivity to your overall mood, or as some call it, "a success mindset". Being part of an awesome group can also give additional energy to members and improve their physical state.
5. Develop more positive habits
Perhaps the most important benefit you can get from a mastermind is replacing old, self-limiting habits with new, success-driven habits. This is where having a good coach leading the Mastermind is crucial and a key. This is not an easy process, nor is it quick. But through repetition and practice, and with the help of other members in the group, it is very much doable. And its effects, long-term.
Often called "the godfather of self growth"; Jim Rohn said it best, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”. This is no doubt the very foundation of what a mastermind group is.
