This post is not about me

I look around the room and I see potential. Guys who are in the process of becoming really successful men in this world. They have choices to make, and those choices will carve out their path in life and their legacies while they are here in this world. All of us have flaws, and things that can be easily improved upon. Habit and routine has made us weak and absent minded.

In establishing the alliance 5 months ago, I would not have guessed that we would still be meeting weekly. In some ways our meetings are an escape for me. It is a way for me to see a glimpse of what I really want to do in life and how I can get there. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life sitting in front of a computer, taking orders from middle management. Read more

Mastermind Alliance Philosophy

Alliance philosophy
The purpose of our existence is to increase our survival and replication value. Everything we do in life refers back to this fundamental purpose. To deny this is to deny the very reason for our existence. People may argue about life, morals and being happy, however this is the fundamental reason on a biological level of why we are here, and we are governed by these laws of nature. Read more

The Purpose of a Master Mind Alliance

According to Napoleon Hill, “a Master Mind Alliance is the coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.”

We wrote down our goals in life (5 minutes), on a piece of paper of where we wanted to be in 3 years. We then wrote down where we are now from a 3rd person perspective. 1 by 1, we went around the room and each one of us gave insight into what we facing, the “walls” and “barriers” and how to over come them. In some cases, we pointed out over dreaming or “wishing” instead of planning out specific events.

It was interesting getting people’s thoughts on what they thought our barriers were as opposed to our own thoughts of what our walls are. In some cases, the answers were very different.

Our Mastermind Alliance had the following rules:

Rule 1. All members must make a commitment to improve their lives. Without this commitment, noting is possible.

Rule 2. Subjects will focus on the 3 areas of development in Wealth, Health and Love

Rule 3. No negative or nonconstructive criticisms will be allowed. Either offer a solution or do not speak at all. Negativity towards other members will not be tolerated.

Rule 4. Respect and a general level of confidentiality is required for all group members

Rule 5. The group will remain small, with less than 12 people to stay focused and to build trust among its members

Rule 6. Please do not talk about other member’s lives outside of this group. Details discussed outside of the confine of this alliance can only be disclosed with the expressed permission of the originator.

Rule 7. This is an experiment. In the event that this does work, we will support other groups like ours to the extent possible. If this fails, we have lost nothing but a moment of our time.

8 and final rule. If a member permanently leaves the group, he must have a statement of what he has gained while being a member, and outline his new path and how s/he will continue to develop himself/herself. If this is your first night at the alliance meeting, you have to share your life goals with the team
