Most people in life find success because they are simply around successful people. If I were managing someone in the volatile music industry or Hollywood, I’d be very careful and particular in allowing my artist to participate with all kinds of people regularly.
This is because it is so vital you are aware of who you are around on a consistent basis. This is why it is good for you to join a master group. These are called different things by different people, a mastermind group, a peer group, a think-tank group, a gang, a secret society, whatever you name it, join it.
It is important… because your master group will be comprised of people with similar goals, aspirations, and world perceptions as you. They will encourage and motivate you as much as you encourage and motivate them. They will tell you the truth about a situation and about yourself.
They are not particularly in your business or industry, but they are in the same boat as you!
This is why finding or joining a master group and working with them regularly is one of the single most advantages you can give yourself, career, and business.
