Mastermind Advice

The Advice I received from a Mastermind

 

So, I wrote about a Mastermind and its process last week (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/materminds-patricia-jehle-christensen?trk=prof-post ) and I would like to tell you the advice I received regarding a new endeavor, as maybe it will pertain to you, too.

 

My favorite piece of advice:

Imagine lots of fun along the way

 

This has helped a lot since the Mastermind. A positove attitude brings a smile to one’s face and you can even hear it on the telephone. Also, you are more positive and as, inc. writes, complaining is really bad for you. http://www.inc.com/jessica-stillman/complaining-rewires-your-brain-for-negativity-science-says.html

 

My most realistic piece of advice:

Remember that there is a high rejection rate (at least 80%)

 

There is a infographic going around the internet about this particular piece of information. I need to remember that my niche is a niche and that the “world” is not going to come to me. So, I need to ask a lot of potential clients to find the right ones. A “no” leads to a “yes” from someone else… eventually. I just have to keep at it. Probably the same is for you.

 

Another helpful and surprising piece of advice:

Combine (balance) the easy with the hard activities

 

This is a great psychological tool—I can reward the hard parts of my job with the pleasant ones. Thus, I get more difficult activities done by combining them with easier or more pleasant activities. What a great trick. I kind of did this in college: for every x number of pages written for a paper, I got to read y number of pages is a novel. You can do this with whatever activities motivate you.

 

Of course, there is a page full of a list of pieces of advice, but I wanted to share these.   I am looking forward to this week and leading a couple of masterminds with clients.

 

Should you be curious about Masterminds and what I am doing with the Alpha Group (.biz), you can write me at patricia@jehle-coaching.com or check out my website: www.jehle-coaching.com

 

Have a great week!
