A few things I know are timeless . . .
Great things happen when people gather in a safe place and communicate
When bad things happen, people naturally gather and “Circle the Wagons” until the storm passes.
On the day 9/11/01, the Twin towers fell. New Yorkers came together and pitched in to help with recovery . . . and word is . . . since then . . . there’s been “Healthier Community”. People have gotten to know their neighbors – speak to strangers – now lend a hand when they previously wouldn’t . . .
We had the same phenomenon during the May floods here in Nashville.
Every time there’s a major Tropical Storm, Hurricane, Earthquake, Tsunami, Volcanic eruption, Political Crisis, economic recession . . . It’s the people who follow this natural instinct to “Circle the Wagons” who are the “HEROES OF THE DAY.”
Yet few of them do what they do for the fame . . . They simply do what comes naturally for them . . . Stepping up when stepping up is needed.
It is true that ANYONE can make a difference . . . and to do so, all we have to do is SHOW UP and TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for our Natural Passion.
Methinks . . . Failure to show up (apathy) is REALLY bad mojo!
Some folks say that when 2 people come together, a “3rd mind” is created . . .
add more people and the brain power increases exponentially.
Things get done in amazing ways.
Each week here in Nashville, TN, I host a “Friday Morning Mastermind” (Every Friday @ 10)
In these mastermind sessions we explore issues and opportunities we are facing in our local community. Sometimes, we tackle “Sales and Business” . . . Sometimes Personal Goals and Aspirations . . . Sometimes Community improvement . . . Often Real Estate Related, but everything we talk about is applicable to ALL businesses and people.
In my view, the people who show up at these Masterminds are heroes because after each of these sessions every person who has participated leaves with new perspective that has been co-created with the other participants.
All boats rise with this tide!
Anyone is welcome – no strings attached!
THIS is how we are going to recover from this recession and flow through any and all obstacles we face in the future.
Will you join us?
Just contact me to be added to the invitation distribution or find me on facebook where I post the events.
PS: This post began with some deep thinking about the power of “Collective consciousness” which gave rise to some other thoughts about the power of “Unified Thought” . . . When people gather around an issue or opportunity for which all of them have real passion . . . AMAZING things happen!
