A hustler needs a mastermind group.
Install a Bigger Vision
Someone once said you are the average of the five people with whom you spend the most time and the books you read. There is a very real and very important truth in this statement. Your vision can become limited to the vision of the people you surround yourself with.
If the people you spend the most time with don’t have a bigger vision of who they are, who they are becoming, and what they are capable of, you won’t have that vision either. You can very easily become comfortable where you are. You can spend too much time there.
A mastermind group of hustlers will challenge your vision by showing you what is possible. They’ll infect you with their mindset. And they will install a bigger vision.
Iron Sharpens Iron
One of the greatest benefits of a mastermind group is that different members have different backgrounds, different skills, and different business models. These differences provide the hustler with the opportunity to learn from the other members.
If one member has a certain experience or skill set, that member can massively shorten the learning curve of the hustler who needs to learn something new to produce better results.
One of the biggest learning outcomes you get with a mastermind group is that you get to learn other people’s business models. In a lot of cases, the hustler can apply another member’s business model and improve their own.
The sharing of skills and models works both ways. The hustler learns from the mastermind, and she also contributes by teaching.
Hustlers don’t need anyone else to hold them accountable for producing results. That’s one of the things that makes a hustler a hustler.
The members of the mastermind inspire and encourage each other to push harder, to go further, to produce even greater results. By openly discussing their results and they challenges, the members of the mastermind group notch each other up.
A mastermind group provides a form of accountability. It’s a different kind of accountability.
A mastermind group can also help the hustler with new opportunities.
Almost anyone who is willing to participate in a mastermind group will have a network of friends, allies, customers, and partners worth knowing. These connections can provide the hustler with new opportunities or help them with introductions.
A mastermind group of hustlers will share their personal resources to help the group—and the individuals that make up the group—succeed.
