When I first began my mastermind group, many other mastermind leaders said to me, “That is not a mastermind group. That is not how they operate.” I responded with, “Great! Now I know my mastermind group will stand out and stand tall!” Although I was right in my assumptions, I had more trial and error moments than most. I made more mistakes than others and needed to adjust more than others.
Here is the deal. When you do not rob and duplicate, you must be willing to make mistakes and adjust when needed. You must not be afraid to eat dirt; and by that, I mean, someone will come along and say, “I told you that wouldn’t work!” Hey…good for them for being right in the moment; but, keep trying things that others have not done, and eventually you will have created your secret sauce—your formula nobody else offers, and that works.
Over the span of three years, Transform Mastermind has offered classes and then cancelled those classes. We have offered incentives and removed those incentives. Schedules have been created, and then recreated. However, in the end, we have the perfect schedule with perfect incentives, that create a profound formula, unlike any other mastermind group. Simply because, I was willing to run my business my own way, try new things, eat dirt, realize when something wasn’t working, and adjust accordingly.
