Mastermind GroupHave you ever sat down with a small group like-minded people with whom you felt like you were mentally connected, that you could think more clearly and that ideas came to you more naturally when you were in their presence. This feeling of mental connectedness is an excellent example of what the late, great Napoleon Hill spoke about in his famous book “Think and Grow Rich”.

Hill said “The mastermind group is a coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony. No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.”

A good mastermind has a synergy of energy, purpose, commitment and excitement that each member brings to the group. Participants constantly raise the bar by challenging each other to brainstorm new ideas, create and implement new goals, stay focused, and provide each other with the ongoing support they need. Working with a group of like-minded, motivated and enthusiastic individuals will definitely help you expand your mind and achieve more than you have ever thought possible.

If you are looking to participate in a mastermind, be sure to check out Atlanta REIA’s new Mastermind Group for Real Estate Investors.
