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.
- 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!
