Darth Vader’s Mastermind Group

What good is a “mastermind group”?

Ask Darth Vader.

I mean, for almost a DECADE we all thought Darth was the villain of Star Wars.

And after more than 20 years in the making, the series of movies in the Star Wars saga tells the whole story.

Darth Vader started out as a good guy.

He got off track. WAY off track.

Then, in the end, he did the right thing.

And turns out he was STILL a good guy.

Why? Because people in his Mastermind Group – the Jedi – got him back on the right path.

Even if it WAS at the last possible moment.

Between the training that Darth got from Obi-Wan…

…and the example his former master set for him…

…and the direct appeals of his son Luke…

Darth did the right thing, and killed the Emperor.

He saved his son… the Rebellion… and his own soul.

That's what a Mastermind Group – a good one – will do for you.

They will tell you what you're doing wrong, even when you're completely full of your own crap.

Even when you think you're about to Rule The Universe.

Because the moment you start believing your own bull is usually the moment when you're about to take a big fall.

QUESTION: who do you have in YOUR life who's willing to tell you that you're about to “blow it”?

If you don't have somebody who's willing and committed to doing that, you need to find them. Pronto.

There's several ways to do it.

For instance, you can set up your own Mastermind Group. Find the members, recruit them, and set up the meetings, etc.

It'll take some legwork, but it's worth the effort.

You could also join an existing small group, but good ones are hard to find and harder to get into. Just make sure you're not getting yourself into a negative gossip-group that is PRETENDING to be a true “Mastermind”. You'll know pretty quick.

You can also pay to join a Mastermind.

This is often a good option, because the fact that there are “membership dues” helps weed out the people who are not such a good fit.

Whatever you do, make sure you get yourself involved in some kind of “Mastermind group”.

If it can save Darth Vader… what can it do for you?
