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.
