Why you need a mastermindby Holly Lanesmith
Henry Ford once said, "If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself."
Here’s the thing: we as human beings are not designed to operate in silo. We weren’t made to just do our own thing, independent of anyone around us.
We’re relational beings. We need human connection to survive. Just think of a small baby. He or she requires sustenance from another person in order to live. It’s a plain and simple truth.
But somehow along the way, many of us have been programmed to believe that we’ve got to "prove ourselves," and that we’ve got to "go it alone." We buy into this idea that we’ve got to be fiercely independent in order to be successful.
...And I’m telling you, nothing is further from the truth.
Back in my 20’s when I began studying the book, Think & Grow Rich, with my mentor, Patrick Hayes, we got to the chapter on the Power of the Mastermind.
And it caught my attention because up until then, I didn’t truly grasp how important collaboration, cooperation, and coordination with other people was to the fulfillment of my own goals and dreams.
In the book, Think & Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill says that 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 definite purpose."
You see, when you put together two minds of individuals who are working in harmony, the sum of the whole is greater than the individual parts.
Think about it. If you’re of the Christian faith, this is a Biblical principle. Jesus taught, "when two or more are gathered in my name…"
Your individual power is multiplied when you work in harmony with another individual.
Now here’s the thing – it can’t just be anybody. It has to be someone who is operating in alignment with your purpose; with your mission.
It has to be someone whose level of awareness matches or exceeds your own. It has to be someone who will work on the creative plane, and not the competitive one.
But when you find that person or group, let me tell you… you will find access to a whole new level of power, creativity, innovation, and awareness than you ever dreamed possible.
The higher the awareness of your mastermind, the greater the level of results you achieve.
So, how do you find a mastermind? How do you find the right people to form your mastermind?
