  • 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!

  • 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!
