As Darren Hardy writes in The Compound Effect:
“According to research by social psychologist Dr. David McClelland of Harvard, [the people you habitually associate with] determine as much as 95 percent of your success or failure in life.”
If you are reading this, you probably already know this is true.
But how often do we focus on leveling up the people that we associate with?
At a basic level, a mastermind represents the ability to do just that. Level up your tribe. Simply, quickly, and often with minimal effort compared to developing a close friend or mentor.
That alone is PLENTY of reason to join a mastermind. But, let’s break down a few more practical reasons:
- GATHER NEW IDEAS
You will “broaden your bubble” to come across ideas and solutions that you cannot be exposed to without outside contact.
- EXPAND YOUR SKILLS
You will find others with skills and experiences that complement yours and fill your gaps (and vise versa). This will expand your own knowledge base.
- INCREASE ACCOUNTABILITY
You will be much more committed to your initiatives as you communicate them with your peers and have another level of accountability.
- BUILD YOUR SUPPORT GROUP
You will have a network of people who are vested in your success and you can call on in the future when the need arises.
- MORE MOTIVATION
You will be more motivated by being exposed to those battling similar battles and feeling the “team” vibe.
Here are the most common objections our minds come up with as to why we “can’t” attend a mastermind.
- I don’t have time
- I won’t get anything valuable out of it
- I can’t afford it
If you have been around business for any amount of time, you know that you must invest to receive. The investment in developing yourself is one that can provide exponential returns over endless periods of time.
Is there a risk you won’t get something out of your investment? That is always the case. But if you never take that risk, you’ll never have the chance to be exposed to that little hack that saves you 30 minutes every day… or that change in your way of thinking that alters the trajectory of your life overall for the better… and everything in between.
So the next time a mastermind or a peer meeting within your industry comes up… take the leap and see where it takes you.
The Level Method Legion is a large collection of not just gym owners… But high performing, business-minded, sophisticated, and downright sexy gym owners. The staff at Level Method recognized how valuable and rare this type of scenario is. The chance to get together and talk shop with some of the best in the business within our industry… with no travel, minimal time, no mask, and no money.
THIS is why the Monday Mastermind was born.
There is no other reason than to provide the benefits for the members within the Legion and grow together. So next Monday, take 45 minutes and level up your tribe.
