For a long time, I have been using this strategy. I first heard or learned of this strategy from the book Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. There is a Law of Success called the Power of The Mastermind. I know this works and I will break it down in this blog. I will teach you how to use it and how I use it.
Step 1: Build Your Team
A lot of people say I know a lot or things like you’re so smart. But the truth is I always have help. I have a team of people I can call anytime and brainstorm ideas with. This is your 1st step, find people you can brainstorm your ideas with. Be careful who you pick because some people talk but don’t act. You want action takers and people doing better than you in the area you are trying to improve.
Step 2: Find Your Thinking Space
My thought process is simple. I go to my thinking place, which is somewhere quiet where I can focus and think undisturbed. For me it’s the shower, for you it might be somewhere else. But regardless find you a quiet place where you can focus on your thoughts. Why’ll in your thinking place come up with your idea and bounce them around with all the possibilities. You want to do this before you even talk to anyone. But even though you have thought of all possibilities remember to stay open minded. Your 2nd step is to find your thinking place.
Step 3: Share Idea's
Once you have brainstormed your idea then call one of your friends. Run your idea bye them. You may have thought of all the possibilities you can, but they will come up with ones you may not have thought of. Listen with an open mind. Ask questions and think critically. Try to think of new possibilities as you listen and think about what they say. Your 3rd step bounce ideas with your friend.
Step 4: Let The Magic Work
This is where the magic comes into play. This is the invisible person there with you. When you do this, you will come up with a new idea that neither one of you could have thought about on your own. It will be as if another person was in the room or on the phone with you. This idea will be the one that works the best. I personally use this for every idea. I love to brainstorm then test out new ideas and see what happens. Then adjust from there. Start building your team and give it a try. You will be amazed at how far and how fast you get ahead.
The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.
