The purpose of the meet-up group is to facilitate “Self-Improvement and Empowerment” of each one of us. Our members do it in the following ways…
1. By facilitating like-minded people to meet and network with each other
2. By sharing knowledge, experiences, and resources with each other, and
3. By acting as a support group, where individuals help each other to attain their goals
Let's consider these three in detail:
To facilitate like-minded people to meet and network with each other:
We all come from varied backgrounds, and have different strengths in terms of knowledge and experiences. One of the difficulties of our fast-paced modern life is that we are hardly able to take out any time to go out and meet with good people. And this despite of living in the age of mobile phones, Facebook, and Twitter. Each one us has a special talent, a special gift, a special desire. But we keep it to ourselves. That’s because our families, and our friend circles, and our professional networks cannot relate to any of it. One of the goals of this forum is to meet and network with such like-minded people.
To share knowledge, experiences, and resources with each other:
As I mentioned earlier, every one of us has unique strengths. We get to share our knowledge and wisdom with people here. Sharing is a very powerful concept. When we share, we empower other people to learn out of our experience. When we share, we also get an opportunity to assess our beliefs in form of receiving critical feedback. In order to facilitate sharing, we usually have one of us come up and speak here every week, followed by an open discussion. This forum will help everybody gain powerful insights from each other.
To act as a support group, where individuals help each other to attain their goals:
When we share our goals, we can also find people contributing towards our goal. That can happen in so many ways. A simple aspect of discussing problems and issues that hold us can do wonders. We can also have people with similar goals co-working on them. We might even find a guide or a mentor here. The ways in which we can help each other are enormous. This forum will hopefully be able to serve everyone here as a support group.
