Tapping Into the Power of a Mastermind Group – a guest post by David Solomon – Part 1

You’ve probably heard the old expression that “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. This concept proves itself over and over with the exponential power of the Mastermind Group.  The idea of a mastermind collective was first mooted in Napoleon Hill’s classic Think and Grow Rich. Hill wrote, “No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”

Today, more and more people are harnessing the power of the Mastermind Group to help them think bigger. This concept can be applied to business, social causes, politics, relationships, health, and even artistic endeavors. Combining the abilities of multiple individuals to solve problems, brainstorm ideas, seek solutions, and develop strategies creates greater results than going it alone.

Support groups are wonderful because they can help heal traumas, addictions, etc. A Mastermind group, however, is generally much more than a support group and its focus is about moving you forward and helping you (individually or collectively) achieve a dream or a goal. There is little room for whining or staying stuck – the focus is on getting unstuck. Mindsets are a huge part of the Mastermind. 

A Mastermind won’t make you comfortable. Masterminds are effective because they require you to expand beyond your old limits. A Mastermind group holds you accountable. Group energy is powerful. The group is a “team” and team spirit is contagious. And there’s wisdom in accountability! 

A Mastermind generates ideas and resources. When a circle of people gives their full attention to one person, one concept etc., all kinds of ideas are generated. Resources and connections are often discovered in the process. This is a huge benefit to taking part in any Mastermind group. 

There is a mystical quality to the Mastermind – that’s what Napoleon Hill was referring to. In other words, the intention of the group creates a higher intelligence that is guiding the group and moving it forward.  It’s the spirit of the group itself.
In Part 2 of this article next week, we will look at some basic guidelines for the formation and running of an effective Mastermind group.
