I’d like to talk about the Mastermind principle today – it’s only powerful if we apply it. I’ve mentioned before how good habits are as addictive as bad habits, but much more rewarding.
In our Book Arbitrage Mastermind Facebook group have you thought about how sharing what you’ve learned can consolidate your learnings & strengthen those patterns in your mind – thereby making them automatic.
If you desire different or more results then you have to take different action.
“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.” ~ Margaret Fuller
Think about what you’ve learned already in Book Arbitrage. You probably went through the training once or twice if you’re diligent. Did you write down what you learned & even highlight it?
Within 2 weeks of learning new things we usually forget about 70% of what we learn.
But what if you were to go back over what you’ve learned and explore it to see your understanding of it now, do you think you would see a difference?
When we were in school we did repeated learning – do you remember our times tables – one plus one =2, one plus 2 = 3. We did them until we knew them by heart.
What if you knew your Book Arb business by heart, inside and out? What difference could that make to your life? What if we remain open to learning in the way we were when we were in school/college?
One of the ways to achieve this quickly in my experience is to apply the Mastermind principle. We have the perfect platform in the Mastermind Facebook Book Arb group to achieve this.
Consider, if you pose questions and post answers to other’s queries you could learn your business to a deeper level? Something brilliant happens when we write something down. When we teach others – we learn ourselves in a more accelerated way. When we know more we can achieve more. We just need to apply this for it to work.
“The more often you share what you’ve learned, the stronger that information will become in your memory.” ~ Steve Brunkhorst
So today – I am encouraging you to share what you have learned so far about Book Arb, for example:
- Two fast ways to list a book
- Your effective repricing strategy
- What you consider important when reading a Keepa chart
Anything that you have found valuable will be of amazing value to others.
Remember you cannot teach others without learning more yourself. When you do this you may discover gaps in your own learning.
This is great news – drill down, improve on it and grow your business.
You’ll also absorb more yourself of what you are sharing with others – win-win.
“The mastermind principle consists of an alliance of two or more minds working in perfect harmony for the attainment of a common objective. Success does not come without the cooperation of others.” ~ Napoleon Hill
Wise words there from Napoleon Hill.
There’s no way myself and Tom would be where we are in our business or at the level we’re at without the community.
So I invite you to consider how using the mastermind principle can help you and the community to grow from here and then apply it.
