Mastermind Meetup #3 Dreamscaping

Mastermind Meetup #2 recap & Mastermind #3

Another successful meetup! Thank you all  for coming.

At Sunday’s, July 1st Mastermind Meetup we delve deep into the psychology of the artistic, entrepreneurial mind, by asking one Question.

What drives you?

We defined the Differences of Mattering,Belonging & Safety driven action & inaction. Each Mastermind told us what drives them so that  the rest of the group can make sure they are responding in a way that is helpful and encouraging to You.

When you receive the type of support you need your mind stays open,receptive and totally creative!

We also asked…

What’s your dream? What’s your obstacle?

Each Mastermind presented their  dream and the obstacles keeping them from achieving that dream. Some dreamed of designing video games, while others to build museums, each having unique obstacles: confidence, procrastination, time, skills. Not surprisingly, most obstacles are those that live in our minds.

Imagine you are sitting there and you think “OMG I have the best idea!”

We’ve all been there, in the excitement and the thrills of a creative breakthrough, the moment when the little hairs on the back of your neck stand on end as the fabulous idea seems to suddenly appear out of nowhere in your  Eureka Moment.

Personally, I think this is what Heaven is.

Unfortunately, moments later, your critter brain chimes in as self doubt sets in.

“Who do you think you are?” “You don’t have time for this.” Or my personal recording “ Great Idea! yeah… for someone else.” The initial thoughts are followed by ALL reasons why you can’t do it.

You can thank your primal brain for this as  it does not care what you dream to do, it’s job is to protect you and safety lives in the comfort zone, not in the creative realm of change. But we can’t place all the blame on your brain, you can also thank adults who poisoned your childlike mind with those negative recordings. Think about it,  why on earth would you in your right mind speak to yourself in such a way? Someone must have put those doubts there in the first place.

 

Take aways:

  • Support your fellow Masterminds on their terms meeting their needs, but you must first know what those terms are. What’s your driver? Is it Safety, Belonging or Mattering?
  • Realise your brain will trick you into doing nothing, it’s job is to protect you so you’ll have to fight again it if you want to succeed.

For next Sunday’s Mastermind Meetup July 8th, please complete your Dream Planner worksheet

Name your dream, describe emotional reactions you’ll get to achieving that dream, List a few role models who have done Exactly or nearly exactly what you dream to do, and lastly name the tangible target when do you know you have achieved your dream?

 

Can’t wait to see you all there, Dream big friends!

What is a Mastermind Meetup?

Mastermind Meetups are discussion based workshops where the participants (Masterminds)  work together to give each other the support we need to achieve our goals and dreams.

We all started as big thinkers, dreamers, genius’ but somewhere along our walk in “reality”  an adult in our lives, perhaps a teacher or  parent, friend or lover thought they would “save” us and tell us directly or indirectly, “give it up kid!” Unfortunately, we believed these adults in our lives (assuming they knew better) & without questioning their reasoning we gave up.  “You’re right Joe, I don’t know what I was thinking!? I should go give up this fantasy and go find a real job.”

If you’ve never had the support you need to succeed I invite you to come make a New  Family with  the Masterminds.

These workshops  not only designed to give you support but also a safe place for you to dream big with plenty of cheers and praise along the way to reaching your milestones, and the energy of  a group where You  belong.

Lastly, and quite important, you’ll learn tools to help you succeed.

  • Rewire your brain  through neuroplasticity.  you’ll learn how to get past the bad days  using psychology to dispel limiting beliefs, create new habits & build confidence.
  • Plan your dreams and make them real through tailored lessons in  dream planning with useful worksheets & idea generating sessions(brainstorming.)
  • Learn to work smarter…not harder. by making connections that will save you time. No one ever succeeded at ANYTHING alone so don’t think you will either! You’ll need contacts, knowledge, and the mind-power of the many to succeed.

Mastermind Meetups are held every Sunday 6am-7am SLT (PST)  & 6pm-7pm SLT (PST)  @ CafeMake with other venues coming soon! Once attending you’ll also be given an invite to join us on our Discord Channel giving you one more way to stay in touch with fellow Masterminds.

If you’re ready to  take real action & go for your dreams I invite you to join us this Sunday at the “Mastermind Meetup” in Secondlife.

Be in the know!

Please join the Wyndavere City Second Life group or follow us on Twitter, Subscribo,or @ Wyndaveres.com to keep up to date on future events. Upon joining the group send a quick IM to Wynd Ling and request a “Mastermind” title. I look forward to  seeing you all there!

Mastermind Meetup #2 Dream a little Dream

Mastermind #1 Recap & Mastermind Meetup #2 

On Sunday June 24,2018 we had our very first mastermind Meetup & it was a great success! Thank you all for joining us for our very first Mastermind Meetup (cheers wildly.)

For those who missed out I’ll be submitting a recap after each and every Sunday’s Meetups combining  useful information from both the 6am-7am  & the 6pm-7pm sessions, but please do join us at  @ Cafe’ Make, Wyndavere City  to get the most out of the project. Showing up is the first step to succeeding at ANYTHING!

During our flagship  meetup we covered  a range of topics from psychology- why you don’t believe you can do it, or why you lack motivation, and even some stories told by other Masterminds. Here is a recap:

Host introduction: Hello I’m Wynd Ling, SecondLife resident of over 11 years (and counting), artist, architect, entrepreneur, leader, teacher and life loving psychology junkie info sponge!

Mastermind Introduction: The idea of mastermind groups was first introduced in the 1930’s in Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Richand later in The Success Alliance.”  A Mastermind it is a group of people with drive, determination, and love of their craft who give each other support and brainstorm ideas to  help them reach their fullest potential,and ultimately fulfill their dreams.

The goal of these meetups is the same, support each other because success is determined not by drive alone but by the people you surround yourself with. A group of supportive high energy peers will be worth more to you than a certificate or money because of the time it will save you to reach your dreams sooner.

Look back through history, all of us could have been Einstein or De Vinci, or even some of my personal heroes, Oprah and  Ellen, if only we’d had that one person who believed in us, even when we did not believe in ourselves.

I invite you to be that person for someone else and let us be your people too.

See these ideas in action with  Barbara Sher’s Tedx Talk

 

Takeaways:

  • Dreams are built by connection. Networking and surrounding yourself by people who want to help solve your problems.
  • A dream should be something within your control…So as much as I too would like world peace, I can not control all the people in the world so this is not a good, concrete goal to go after, though I’m not suggesting you don’t do your part by being a good human.
  • A dream needs a problem to solve, as Barbara Says “Even people who don’t like you will want to help you solve your problem.”

For next Sunday’s Mastermind Meetup July 1st please think up a dream you want.

Example: I want to tour the world

Obstacle: but I don’t have the money (finally “But’s” do matter!)

Can’t wait to see you all there, Dream big friends!

Masterminds Welcome!

Wyndavere City Proudly welcomes “Mastermind meetup.”

@ Cafe’ Make, Wyndavere City !

The Bravest thing you can do is follow your dreams, and reaching them is dependent on a strong support system.

Some of us are blessed  to have great support from friends and family.  Sadly, this is  usually not the case. 

Do your friends tug at your arm to go out with them when you mention working towards your dream? Is your family nagging you to “get your head out the clouds and get a Real Job?” I know I know, we’ve all been there, we love them for who they are and cherish their  company but let’s admit it, they’re not the best crowd when we are trying to reach our dreams.

We all need someone to believe in us.

 Why not let me be that someone to you while you be that someone to me? I need you to pick me up when I fall and I promise to push you onward when you want to stop.

That’s exactly what the MasterMind meetups are for! To help you get the support you need to go after your goals. We want to help you be courageous, We want you to be courageous, tackle the big dreams,the ones that keep you up at night….You know, the ones even YOU thinks are to nuts to to go after!

Mastermind Meetups will be held twice on Sundays, once in the morning once in the evening ensuring everyone is full of positive energy and ready to crush it Monday morning.

 

Get ready to  take on your goals!

Our first official meetup will be:

June 24th,2018

6am-7am SLT and 6pm-7pm SLT

@ Cafe’Make

Bldg 2 , 2nd Floor

Wyndavere City

 

This will be a meet and greet where we’ll all introduce ourselves and review (with your input) the goals of the Mastermind Meetups.

This is NOT a Second Life builders club, anyone with a dream is welcome and encouraged to join. These discussions are lead by Wynd Ling, and totally FREE (donations are always welcome!)

 

Please join the Wyndavere City Second Life group or follow us on Twitter, Subscribo,or @ Wyndaveres.com to keep up to date on future events. Upon joining the group send a quick IM to Wynd Ling and request a “Mastermind” title. I look forward to  seeing you all there!

Wynds tips #4 SEO Search Engine Optimization

Wynd’s Tips #4 SEO ( Search Engine Optimization )  it’s for SecondLife too!

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for you! If you Optimize it they will come!

SEO Search Engine Optimization

Second Life is a search Engine no different from Google.

Grab your customers & the Second Life Search engine’s attention by giving your products User-friendly/Search Engine friendly names, descriptions, & don’t forget to check off the “Show in Search” option on every new creation!

Be Seen & Heard!

If you don’t know what Search Engine Optimization is, think of it as the thesis statement to sum up a story. , At a quick glance, you want the search engine and  your customers to know exactly what it is you have to sell.

Pick the most important words for both people and the Second Life search to know what it is you are selling and why they should buy it.

Algorithm priority is typically given to  Username, Store Name, Creator Name, first 60 characters of the object title, first 160 characters to the object’s description. Make use of all of these fields to maximize your exposure through keyword rich copy.  

Look for a Full 2 part series for both in-world products and  SecondLife Marketplace listings in the coming weeks and then the second part  2 weeks from then.

OOooorr you can even contact me in world for a one on one chat over a cup of coffee at Wyndavere’s in SecondLife.

Sneak Peek BIG news reveal

Wynkie Wear, the brand that never was has been SOLD!

Sometime ago  I introduced you all to a durpy sock puppet named Wynkie, with the intent of branching off and making a slightly naughty but quite comical line of fashion nobility items.

Fairwell Wynkie, Enjoy your new home.

The truth is while I  really enjoyed working on that branding package and all that went with it, I would like Wyndaveres to stay fresh, clean , romantic.

It feels warm and cozy in here and I would like to keep it that way. Don’t get me wrong I’m not all beds of roses and romance, but I think giving Wynkie his own space, a proper home for his humor is the right move.

So fairwell Wynkie, I know your new owner will  give you all you need to thrive!

Fairwell, but not goodbye of course as the new fella will be opening his store Summer 2018 and promises to bring this brand to full life. Congratulations and enjoy your journey!

If you are interested in getting some help developing your own store/product  branding contact me for pricing and to review your project or ask questions, ideas and knowledge are nearly always sometimes free.
