The Importance of a Mastermind
Hey guys Chris Hughes here live from Boquete, Panama and I just wanted to show you the view here and I wanted to talk with you about something that Napoleon Hill originally spoke about in the book, Think and Grow Rich.
This video is going to be about forming a mastermind, which is basically a group of like-minded people to challenge you and elevate you to the next level and to become a better person. As well as to improve yourself and in the case of my mastermind, make more money.
You see, about a month and a half ago I really took the idea of a mastermind seriously and I took action and formed a mastermind with some of my closest Entrepreneurial friends.
This took place on a trip to Costa Rica and we all decided that it would be very beneficial for us all if we challenged each other, encouraged each other and shared resources that were helping us.
It was basically put together to force us to step out of our comfort zone and become better.
Now what happened was a little mind boggling…at least to me anyway.
I tripled my income and a couple of the guys in the group started taking their business seriously (now that the ego got involved) and they really started to do work.
Some of the other guys noticed that this put them on the path to ultimately get to where they wanted to be.
I really just wanted to share the importance of it because when I first learned about it, I did not take it seriously at all and I really missed out on a huge opportunity to grow.
My ego had gotten in the way and I thought that I knew better than Napoleon Hill and didn’t need to use his little success tips. Damn ego..
Now one of the biggest things I’ve noticed about this mastermind is that if you are truly struggling with something and you let other people in your mastermind know, they can help you overcome the obstacle.
Whether something isn’t paying off yet, or you have that little thing in your head telling you that you can’t do it, these guys/gals can help you break through.
It’s really a valuable lesson to actually create one of these masterminds because you’ll have people around you who want you to succeed.
You are probably aware and have noticed that a lot of people who you speak to about your business or your goals do not care about them.
Now what you want to do is start to find like-minded people to form a mastermind with you. Find people who are at the same level as you, or are just above your income right now.
Finding people like this forces you to become comfortable with where you’re at and it forces you to challenge each other to become more… plus, you can talk shit to your friends if you beat them in the mini challenges you guys come up with.
You can form a little facebook group and make it private if you aren’t in the same town/state/country. That’s what we’ve done with my private group. We’re all over the world but we keep in touch via facebook and meeting up around the world.
