Join a Mastermind Group and Enjoy the Power of the Hive
Regardless of your responsibilities in life as a business owner, a mom, or the CEO of a major corporation, thinking outside the box makes outcomes of all situations more interesting. However, there are times when it is difficult to find the motivation to be creative. When you hit a stagnant pool of the doldrums, it often helps to seek inspiration from others. A great way to do that is to become part of a mastermind group.
It is possible that you already understand the benefits of being a part of such a group, especially if you’re a business owner; however, you may not realize is how those benefits translate into improved creativity in all aspects of your life.
Benefit #1 – There is Creative Stimulation
Everyone can get in a rut and lose their creative spark. When that happens, you can go to your mastermind group and draw on their creativity. You can share your project with them and ask for their ideas and thoughts. In a short time, you will have more ideas than you can actually use. Also, it often takes only one comment from someone else to push your creative thinking into high gear.
Benefit #2 – They Push You to Expand Your Thinking
One of the great benefits of a mastermind group is that they challenge you to think bigger than you may have thought possible. They will encourage you step out of your comfort zone and stretch beyond self-imposed boundaries to reach for bigger and better goals. Expanded creative thinking requires you to spread your creative wings and soar. The group can help you do that.
Benefit #3 – You Partner with Others
In a good mastermind group, you will build strong relationships with many of the members. It is very possible that you will find someone to partner with on a project – or – someone may approach you about partnering with them.
Partnerships can be an amazing win/win situation as long as both partners do their fair share of the work. A huge side benefit of any good partnership is that you experience how the other person thinks and works, which will give you a different perspective on how you approach projects and can very possibility encourage you to think differently – in other words “be more creative” in your own approach.
Benefit #4 – You Participate in Brainstorming Sessions
Even though many people want to work for themselves (to be their own boss), there is a downside. You work alone! As lovely as that may be, there is no one to use for bouncing ideas around. If you get stuck and cannot find a way out, it can be extremely frustrating. You may end up running around in circles in your own head.
But, when you are part of a mastermind group, you can go to the group and brainstorm ideas with them. It is an exciting process to participate in a discussion in which everyone applies their creative thinking skills as they tap into their collective pool of knowledge to help you get unstuck and moving forward again.
