Week 6 – The Advantages of a Mastermind Group

Filed under: Uncategorized — Michael @ 5:45 pm

After a low mid-week last week and blogging about just that, I received so much support and discovered that many others also feel the overwhelm and defeat just as I do. But we press on with the knowledge we have gained, not letting an attitude of defeatism set in. It’s easy for me to quickly change my mental momentum when I catch myself and think, as a friend and mentor once suggested, “Lord, give me your thoughts.” It’s also easy when I put a blog post up venting my self pity and I get so many responses to approve that are encouraging me to press on. So thank you to all of you who did that!

This week has been better, with much more focus on the “I” that I am becoming, the “I” that I am creating. A finalized Definite Major Purpose… yeah! …Press releases, and a movie poster. Add to all that colorful shapes galore that my brain is searching for to associate with my Personal Pivotal Needs, SMART Goals, and DMP.

2 Nov 2017 Vision Board – Michael

Here’s a “movie poster”/”vision board” that will keep my mind focused on the future I’m creating, and that in some ways, is already here!


  1. I finished my Movie Poster earlier today and WOW I can see it helping me change that old blueprint. I like that you were willing to share your Movie Poster. It’s great to have each other’s support as at times this seems overwhelming to me too. Blessings on your journey!
