There’s a saying by Motivational Speaker Jim Rohn, that “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”
Let that sink in.
The 5 people.
Now, name their names and consider their qualities.
Perhaps you’re inspired.
Maybe you’re a little concerned!
My point is not to judge your friends but to have you take a second to consider the type of person you are, and the one you want to be.
Sometimes you need new relationships to get you there. Relationships to stretch and support you where you know you need to grow.
These are masterminds.
Think of it as your “group of 5” (or however many are in it!) that is committed to bringing out the best in you (and you, for the others).
So, are you ready? Are you willing?
Women entrepreneurs ask this of themselves and to me all the time.
It’s a great question and so let me quickly tell you what I tell those who want to grow and are curious about masterminds.
For example, it’s not enough to say if you’re business to look for a business mastermind. It’s important to ask yourself a few extra questions.
People who lead masterminds hold all kinds of group sizes. Pick the one that’s right for you. Are you interested in information and networking? Maybe a bigger group of 10-100 is what you need. Do you want more attention, deeper connection, and sharper focus from a smaller group? Find one that’s 4-10 people.
I tell my members that the beauty of the mastermind is that we do more than attend–we show up. We show up with our ideas. We show up by being present. And we show up for each other. Masterminds help us prioritize our “group of 5” relationships which helps us prioritize the goals we know we want to accomplish. So ask yourself:
Women in my groups say that they feel challenged and inspired like never before to stick to their goals and succeed because they see others in the group doing succeeding.
Who you surround yourself with matters.
So, who are YOUR five?
Who would you like them to be? Who do you need them to be?
Who do you need to surround yourself with to rise to a new level?
Why not take these guidelines to heart and consider a mastermind.
