Light Up The World With Your Mind

Over the weekend I was working on a new page for my website, showing the different Master Mind groups I offer.  I decided to include a picture of the three different books we can Master Mind together, which was pretty simple~ Copy~ Paste~ Done!

When I got to the Generic Master Mind, the one where we come together without centering discussions on a book, I realized I wanted a picture for that one too.  I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted, but I was thinking along the lines of a group of people, sitting around a table (even though most groups are done by telephone) talking, sharing, brainstorming.  So I googled “Master Mind Group” and found this picture ~ A group of people, holding hands with a gigantic light bulb in the center.  BINGO!

Even though I knew instantly I had found what I was looking for, I stared at that picture for quite a while.  I was struck by how precisely the image depicted what a Master Mind represents: a group of people coming together with a common purpose, where amazing ideas emerge.  What better way to portray amazing ideas than with a gigantic (relative to the people) light bulb?

The other thing that struck me was how the glow from the light bulb spreads out and touches each one of the people.  Again, very accurate.  Although an idea may be specifically directed towards one member, the entire group benefits as the idea emerges.  What begins as a thought turns into another thought, which turns into an idea, which turns into a bigger idea, which generates another thought, another idea and BAM~ the bulb lights up!  And it is bright.  And then it gets brighter.  And it touches each member of the group as it radiates.  And it doesn’t burn out!

Do you have a Master Mind?  How often do you meet?  Can you relate to the light bulb moments?

For anyone wanting to start a Master Mind, I am doing an interview tomorrow morning with Jean Kuhn of Bounce Solutions, sharing the template for how to begin.  I hope you will join us and give yourself the gift of starting your own Master Mind group (or joining one of mine <wink, wink>) .  And give others the gift of sharing your marvelous mind with them.  Let’s light up the world, one bulb at a time.

  1. Love the picture Linda, I will hold that thought in my mastermind group that starts in 3 minutes. Looking forward to tomorrow.

  2. Hi Laura,
    Wow what a great topic you have chosen! Masterminding. ‘No two minds ever come together without, thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind’ (taken from Think and Grow Rich chapter 10).

    Everyone who is seeking personal growth and wants to contribute to the growth of others should be in a mastermind group. It will change your life and the life of the participants. The light-bulb moments, the support, the goal achieving, the opportunities….etc. Just brilliant. I am in two, have just finished conducting one and am about to embark on facilitating another.

    I would never be without them.
    RCH :-)

      Thanks for this great input Richard…oops, I mean Robert. I’ll forgive you (you called me Laura) ~ having a brand new baby has a tendency to fry our brains a bit :-) LOL!
      I completely agree with you, everyone needs to be in a Master Mind group. We are so fortunate that we get to be IN one, and also able to facilitate others. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

      • Linda, Linda, Linda…..please excuse me :-) I have been dealing with two midwives today both named Laura. I have been calling our daughter (whose name is Venus) the name we originally had for her, Nadine. My fiancee is not happy.
        Ciao Linda :-)

          You make me laugh Robert! I remember when my first daughter was born and I kept calling her Lindsay. Her name was (and still IS) Whitney. And BTW, you are excused! :-) Cheers!

  3. I think you chose the perfect visual, along with your description. WOW!! I think you have your Doctorate in “MasterMindology” :-)

    Hi Linda. I believe that the mastermind group of yours that I was in has brought me to where I am today. Business is great and we are moving into a commercial condo purchased for the business. Keep on sharing.

    Best Joanne

      Hey Joanne, thanks SO much for that nice comment. It was groups like yours that were the inspiration for doing more MM groups. You are a GREAT example of how to consistently move forward on your goal, DESPITE a busy schedule and responsibilities. So glad to hear about buying a space to do what you want to do. CONGRATULATIONS and thanks for stopping by :-)
