If you are here it is probably because you want to improve yourself in some way, and already know that reading the right books can help you on your journey. Learn a little more in more detail about the service that Uption provides, who can most benefit from it, and how to best take advantage of it.
Uption is an online platform to form virtual mastermind groups focused on reading personal development and business books. When you join Uption, you will be able to join mastermind groups focused on reading a specific book together. Other topics include personal finance, investment, philosophy, health, relationships, biographies, and history.
Author Napoleon Hill is often credited with popularizing the idea of a mastermind group in his work “Think and Grow Rich.” Hill states:
“The ‘Master Mind’ may be defined as: ‘Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.’”
While Hal Elrod may not be the first proponent of regularly reading books, his own work “The Miracle Morning” integrated the idea into a group of regular habits designed to improved the lives of others and is in part the inspiration for Uption.
If you have made it this far, you probably care enough about your well-being to benefit from using Uption. No matter where you are starting from, if you recognize that reading is an important part of self-improvement Uption can help you. Many people struggle with their desire to improve themselves because those around them are satisfied with the status quo. If this describes your current situation, join Uption and begin to find new people who will support you in your journey. If you are lucky enough to already have a supporting group of people around you, but want to find a way to support others, you are more than welcome here, too.
Uption provides two key ingredients critical to reaching any goal - commitment and community. Both are critical to reaching your goals.
Joining a group through Uption provides you with a sense of commitment, as you are committing to both yourself and to the other members of your group that you will complete the agreed upon reading. When you read to participate in a mastermind you will better internalize the lessons of the book because you know that you will be expected to discuss them with others.
Each mastermind you participate in is a community that you become a part of, and with that community you are able to attach a sense of belonging and meaning to your reading. The utility of more general masterminds often depreciates over time as some members grow while others remain stuck. Using Uption means that you will constantly move into new groups, which will both expand your personal network and keep discussions new and interesting.
