How To Create A Mastermind To Shift Your Success | Success Principle #46

In Success Principle #46 we are talking about how to create a mastermind. Firstly I first came across the concept of creating a mastermind from Napolean Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich which is a classic, go read it. Secondly I have been in a few masterminds which reflecting back took some concepts from the mastermind and so I will be sharing my experience throughout this post.

Why would you want to create a mastermind?

Here are just a few reasons

  • Accountability.
  • Regular connection.
  • Networks beyond your own to tap into.
  • A chance to learn from other businesses and leaders.
  • A confidential & inspirational space to discuss challenges and problems.

No one has ever become successful by themselves, being self-made is a myth because everyone we have ever met is a teacher because they teach us lessons that help us grow, which makes us who we are.

Masterminds help you connect with teachers in a more structed way so you grow with intention, faster.

What Exactly Is A Mastermind?

A mastermind is a group of peers who regularly meet in order to give each other guidance, advice, and support. Mastermind groups helps you and your mastermind group members achieve success. When two or more people coordinate in a spirit of harmony and work toward a definite objective or purpose, they place themselves in a position, through the alliance, to absorb the power directly from the great storehouse of Infinite Intelligence.

Ideal Size of A Mastermind

How to Create A Mastermind

The quick answer is 6, the maximum 12. When the mastermind is over 12 people it can become an ineffective process. As a result people within the mastermind don’t get as much value, because of that their needs go unmet and they reduce engaging in the process of mastermind. I’ve been in masterminds with thousands of people and I can provide testimony that I minimised my sharing over time.

How Do You Choose Mastermind Members?

  1. Create a list of people that you would love in a mastermind
  2. Send out crafted emails to at least 5 of the people on your list this week.
  3. Keep it short and simple, I’m putting together a new mastermind group of like minded business owners to help each other grow our businesses. I think you would be a great fit for the group.
  4. Add a quick bio listing achievements and successes, or other members of the groups bios listing their achievements
  5. Use an app like Boomerang (for gmail) as a reminder to follow up

How Do You Create A Mastermind Meeting?

Consistency is key, allocating upto two hours every week at the same time via Zoom or hangout. The first couple of meetings could have one memeber using one hour to discuss their current situation, opportunities, needs and challenges then the next hour mini breakthroughs for each members could happen. It’s really upto you how you run mastermind meetings, but it is really important to take the lead so they are run effectively and efficiently. Here are a few guideline steps taken from The Success Principles & my own experience to help you further:

1 – Call in spiritual guidance

2 – Share the good news – What was good about the last 7 days?

3 – Allow members to confirm time needed and use a timekeeper to stick to it

4 – Listen, discuss and brainstorm – Listen to your member, ask clarifying & challenging questions, brainstorm ideas that will help the member move forward

5 – Each member will state their stretch goal commitment that they will aim to achieve in the next 7 days using the 4 W’s see in step 7. A stretch goal will help the member get to their next level of success faster but makes them a little uncomfortable

6 – End with gratitude – At the end of the meeting each person expresses what they are grateful for

7 – Be accountable – Be specific regarding end results, time frames, and expected levels of effort, use the 4 W’s  

  • What: What action needs to be taken?
  • Why: Link this action to the bigger picture so the person understand why they are important. 
  • Who: No two-headed monsters here. Only one person can be accountable per action. 
  • When: Be specific about when you want results– “next month” or “by second quarter” is not specific enough.

Adding Accountability Partners:

You can combine the mastermind with an accountability partner or use accountability in isolation.

Here’s what I found that has worked:

Implement the 3A’s  

  • Authorise your accountability partner to have the authority to challenge you 
  • Agree on a plan for monitoring your effort as well as progress 
  • Always acknowledge your good performance 

In UVA you get access to support so that you can be equipped with tools to maintain your personal energetic frequency
