How to find your ideal Mastermind

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably done a lot of personal development work on your business journey. 

This is because no business can thrive unless the leaders are in the right frame of mind.

I’ve tried it all – courses, seminars, books – you name it!

But one of the most useful personal growth tool of all is surrounding myself with the right people.

Why is this so important?

Because energy is contagious. If you spend your time with moaners and complainers, you’ll become one of them before you know it.

Trust me; I’ve been there.

Participating in formal and informal mastermind groups helped me transform my business and navigate the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur. 

Sometimes I paid to join; others, I created myself so that every day I was connected to people who knew what they wanted and how to achieve it. 

We would support, encourage, and help each other go after what we want.

I can’t begin to explain how much this changed my life. All of a sudden, I became more passionate and creative. I picked up a support system that still means so much to me today.

And that’s what I want for you. 

Having the right people by your side significantly increases your chances of success. You’ll surround yourself with the drive and energy needed to work on the life you want to lead.

But first, you’ve got to know how to find your mastermind group.

You can start with the following tips:

 1. Look for matched energy

The people around you don’t need to have the same goals. But they must have the same energy and mindset. After all, the purpose of a mastermind is to surround yourself with like-minded people.

For example, I was always the super-energetic one in all of my masterminds. But that didn’t mean that those who were a bit more reserved couldn’t benefit. They focused on longer-term goals and worked at their own pace.

You don’t need a mastermind filled with duplicate versions of you. You should have a variety of people. Just put your focus on how their energy affects you. If they have a positive effect, they’d be great for your group.

2. Make a commitment

I’ve participated in countless paid masterminds. That’s not to say I could afford to do so all the time. 

That’s why I chose to form my own mastermind with just a couple of my colleagues from work. We’d meet every week to discuss our biggest goals and how to achieve them.

We held those meetings for nine months without exception. We made a commitment to support each other from day one, and none of us backed out.

Every business person needs a support system. When looking for the right one, you might as well surround yourself with people who’ll stick around.

3. Keep it real

I always advise against forming a mastermind with non-biz friends, family, or partners. 

They’re examples of people who are too close to you to be objective. What’s worse, they might have a vested interest in preventing you from succeeding.

Whatever the case, you need people who’ll not only support you but are willing to kick your butt when you need it.

In essence, it’s about finding people who can remain realistic and help you achieve your goals. 

It’s going to make a world of difference!
