Why Your Mind Needs a Master

brainHey Insiders, JP Moses here… talking about brainstorming with mastermind groups.

I highly recommend it. There’s this friend of mine – Patrick Riddle – maybe you’ve heard of him. (Wink, wink.) He and I get together a few times a year, along with several other masterminds to sharpen our business blades. We exchange stories of both successes and failures. We share best practices. We laugh, we sometimes cry (not often)… but the bottom line is we learn from each other.

Sharing the Good, the Bad & the Ugly

When Patrick and I get together, it’s always a show. We banter like brothers, and we certainly know how to have a good time. But when it comes to business, we shift gears.

We take time to celebrate each other’s wins and successes. Why? Because it feels good! Sharing the good stuff with friends – who you know are genuinely happy for you – just feels good for everyone involved. When it comes to real estate investing, the reward isn’t just about money. It’s about earning the respect from your colleagues and getting that good, old-fashioned high five that makes your day.

But what about the losses. We’ve all got ‘em. They may be painful to share, and sometimes it sucks to admit you messed up. But if you can’t share the not so good stuff with friends and colleagues, who can you tell? So… do share it with those trusted people. Everyone can benefit from knowing what works and doesn’t work. Everyone can learn from your mistakes.

More importantly, sharing your failures to a group you know and trust can help YOU learn from your mistakes. So, be a sponge. Take the feedback and suggestions, and try them on for size the next go-round.

The Power of Multiple Masterminds

With so many brilliant minds at work, you’ve got to have a system to keep the energy flowing in the right direction. So, we take turns learning from the mastermind that is our group. We focus on one person at a time – generating ideas, challenging those ideas and pushing that person to greater levels of awesomeness.

And of course, we’ve got some rules:

  • Show up ready to both give and receive information
  • Be open and honest, caring and sharing at all times
  • Come prepared to give and take it on the chin if need be

First person to break the rules buys the first round. Kidding, actually. But that’s not a bad idea. 🙂

punchFind Your Own Masterminds

Look, if you’re not already a part of a mastermind group, start recruiting! Remember, a mastermind group is simply an alliance of two or more people who want to dedicate their time to helping others and themselves in business… and in life.

Reality check. You don’t have all the answers, but a collective group of experienced, knowledgeable professionals just might. Share your wisdom, learn from others, see things from a different perspective and create innovative solutions for your business.

Master you mind with powerful mastermind groups. Find a group that can catapult your business to the next level and start brainstorming today.
