There’s a reason mastermind groups are becoming wildly popular.

It’s not because it’s the newest fad (in fact, these groups are close on a hundred years old); it’s because they’re so successful.

Mastermind groups are perfect for people committed to achievement because that’s exactly what you’ll get from this platform.

100 years old?!

Well… give or take. It’s hard to know exactly when mastermind groups truly started. What we do know is that in the 1930s Napoleon Hill illustrated their use in his book, Think and Grow Rich.

And, it’s the mastermind facet that US President Woodrow Wilson commented on directly. At the very least, mastermind groups were around long enough for Mr Hill to have a reference point.

But, how long these groups have been around is neither here nor there. It’s the efficacy of mastermind groups that matters. And, as Mr Hill knows, there’s a link between mastermind groups and wealth creation.

The secret behind the super wealthy

Think and Grow Rich nailed it with the financial success secrets (you should probably read it at some point – it’s still very relevant). There’s a link between mastermind groups and financial wealth. In fact, it’s almost as simple as that. Mr Hill states, “…cooperative alliance has been the basis of nearly every great fortune.” He elaborates this by including advisors and counsellors in his understanding of the association, or mastermind.

Within mastermind groups, everyone supports everyone else. They develop connections and networks. They share advice and suggest resources. It’s a cooperative alliance. And, what’s more, everyone in a group is wholeheartedly committed to the financial (or otherwise stated) goals of their peers.

It’s this idea sharing platform, focused on performance that works time and time again. Masterminds are not coffee dates with sympathetic friends; they’re hives of mental activity and goal achievement. That’s what makes them successful – not the length of time they’ve been around.

That’s why we’ve always got mastermind sessions buzzing along at Rethink Central. The groups facilitated by our Liz are always wildly popular, and the participants are undeniably successful – and building their own pockets of wealth.

Makes you wonder why you’re not a part of one already, doesn’t it?
