Why Is Commitment Important To A Mastermind Group?

A mastermind group relies on trust and confidence to be powerful and effective. As a member of a mastermind group you want to know that you can rely on the other members and they want to know that they can rely on you!

If a mastermind group is newly forming, it will usually require a time commitment for a specific period, oftentimes three months or more. Without this time commitment, it’s too easy to give up on yourself and not take the action required to create successes in your business and in your life. Without this time commitment, it’s difficult to gain the trust of the other members and be able to talk freely, share ideas, and encourage, challenge, and inspire each other. For a mastermind group to be truly effective, the members need to form a bond and that is when the dynamic power of synergy really takes off.

When you feel that support, encouragement and inspiration from a “bonded” group, you will get an incredible kind of “buzz” from brainstorming, giving and getting feedback, and participating in the meetings. You’ll carry that feeling of inspiration and power into your business and your life and be able to tackle challenges and obstacles with ease and new confidence.

One of the best things about a mastermind group is that all the other members of the group are COMMITTED to YOUR SUCCESS. They don’t have any pre-conceived or limiting ideas about who you are and what you can or can’t achieve. They just want whatever you want for yourself and are committed to helping you! Very cool, isn’t it? Do you see how powerful that can be?

Making a commitment to a mastermind group is making a commitment to your success!

How Do You Define Success?

When joining any mastermind group you will most likely be asked to define “SUCCESS” in your own way. Your answer to this question will reveal a lot about you, give you a new perspective on your life, and help you understand your “true purpose”. Creating a personal definition of success will also help tell you where you are now on your life’s journey and where you need to go. Pretty amazing.

What is your answer? How do you define success?

Sometimes, we have set so many goals for ourselves and are so busy trying to meet those goals that we don’t stop to take stock of what we HAVE achieved. We don’t take the time to celebrate our successes along the way, or get rid of goals that are outdated and no longer useful to us. This self-evaluation process and “looking back” is a crucial part of moving forward.

Sometimes, we don’t know if we have achieved “success” because we don’t know exactly what it is – what it looks like, what it feels like. Making the vague concept of “success” into something specific and concrete is very important. Think about these questions to help you create your personal definition:

What material and physical things will I have when I’m successful? (Dream House? Porsche? Personal trainer? College tuition for kids?)

How will I feel when I’m successful? (Feeling freedom, relaxed, powerful, capable, generous, grateful, excited, happy?)

What will I be doing with my time? (Spending quality time with family and friends? Pursuing a life passion or favorite hobby? Traveling the world? Enjoying happiness and freedom on a daily basis?)

When you are able to define the specifics of what “success” means to you, you’ll be empowered to create that success. And also, just as important, you’ll have a gauge or measuring stick to recognize when you are experiencing success in your life, so you can take the time to celebrate it!
