The 10x Mindset

The 10x Mindset
Creating Exponential Growth for Your Future
With Gene Early and Nishith Shah

Let’s make it simple. We are offering a remarkable opportunity, and challenge to a group of fellow travelers who are ready to 10x their lives.

That opportunity is to join us for a six-month program including six curated sessions interspersed with practice sessions in addition to homework. In our initial pilot program, we saw a vibrant 10x community which became supportive of one another and accomplished some remarkable outcomes.

The challenge is for you, and us, to establish and integrate a 10x mindset leading to exponential thinking, action, and results that create similar or even greater outcomes.

Let us define 10x for a start. A 10x mindset is anchored around the perceptual filter, “How do I 10x this.” The term 10x represents a symbol for exponential thinking, action, and results. We approach a 10x mindset from a holistic point of view in which there are both subjective and objective results, some of which may be literal and tangible, but many of which may be symbolic and intangible.

Though there are many dimensions to the program which we will unfold together, here are five criteria for assessing whether you might be interested in the content of the program.

  • You’re willing to step outside your comfort zone realizing this is going to take courage.
  • You can envision outcomes that you may not yet know how to achieve but feel compelled to pursue.
  • You choose to enter the unknown and face it no matter the fear, concern, or trepidation because you know the benefit far exceeds the cost.
  • You accept that you will be called upon to use resources you might not know you have or are not yet confident of using.
  • You know sacrifices will be required, are worth the effort, and you are willing to pursue your individual and collective vision with 100% commitment.

What is our target audience?
We are looking for people who are…

  • Are self-starters, confident to take challenging concepts and operationalize them.
  • Have a growth mindset, who are courageous in moving themselves to the next level of impact in their own lives and in the world.
  • Are willing to be flexible in encountering their internal world and have some experience with actively changing their perceptions of the world as new input comes in.
  • Are generous, collaborative, and eager to lead beyond their own self-interest, which will manifest in creating an emotionally bonded and supportive community with other participants.
  • Will come with an initial, external 10x outcome in mind (a starting point potentially subject to some change) and an internal expectation of personal 10x transformation.

NLPers From Around The World

How do you view this group?
This group will build on the foundation that our pilot program from 2022 established. We fully expect to 10x what we did then, leading by example as we challenge ourselves, and supporting you to successfully extend yourself.  

How do you envision the culture of the group?
We understand that culture is a strategic driver within any group, organization, or company. Therefore, we expect to leverage…

  • …the value of a high-performance culture emphasizing personal relationships with each other,
  • …individual and group support for each person’s internal and external outcomes, and
  • …high levels of accountability for personal and group success.

What are our roles?
We are co-creating the design and delivery of this program. Gene has carried the 10x mindset vision throughout his professional life and began to make the principles and practices conscious during his Silicon Valley days. Nishith embodies the 10x mindset and has significant experience in acting to generate 10x outcomes. He sees this as an opportunity to hone his conscious awareness of the principles and practices entailed. We plan to participate with you in applying this experience to our own outcomes.

What are possible outcomes for you?

  • Mindset changes
    • Develop the habit of asking and answering the 10x question, “How do I 10x this?”
      • Increased creativity.
      • Increased impact when new insights turned into action.
    • Removing “noise in the system”
      • Internal dialogue, doubt/unbelief, fear, anxiety
      • Developing strategies for solving “wicked problems”
    • Increased confidence to be bold
      • With self and for others
      • In taking calculated risks that produce significant returns
  • External outcome changes
    • Tangible, quantitative increase
      • Income
      • Scaling of activities and impact
    • Mobilizing community support
      • Increased breadth and depth of engagement
      • Trickle effect: Influencing individuals/systems and their impact
    • Return on investment
      • Material benefits in addition to income

How large is the group?
We expect this group to be larger than our pilot program given the confidence we developed in that program. Ideally, we’ll have a minimum of twenty people but can imagine even more given the enthusiasm that we’ve encountered so far.

When does it start and what can we expect?
15th April 2023. Each full session will be the third Saturday of each subsequent month, finishing in September. In addition, we’ll have practices sessions occurring in between each of the full sessions on Sundays, either 2 or 3 weeks after the full session. In addition, we will invite you to focus on a variety of homework assignments that will accelerate the development of your 10x identity and 10x mindset.

How long is each session?
Four hours with a break. Practice sessions will be two hours.

Are practice sessions required?
Though we are flexible for exceptions, we fully expect a commitment to the entire program. If for some reason that becomes impossible, we will discuss options.

What time will the session be?

  • 18:00-22:00 IST
  • 13:30-17:30 CET
  • 12:30-17:30 UK
  • 8:30-11:30 Eastern US  

Will there be homework?
Yes. The homework will emerge out of the work we do together and will be designed to move you forward with regard to your internal, 10x mindset shift and your external 10x outcome. We know that to be successful in this program, you will need to increase the number of “distinctions and their relationships” with regard to your 10x mindset and also your 10x outcome. (Our definition…competence increases as one increases the number of distinctions and relationships between those distinctions when acted upon in particular contexts.) As a consequence, we expect congruent commitment to yourself, your outcome(s), and others’ outcomes which includes “doing the work” necessary to achieve 10x your mindset and your outcome.

What is the pricing?
Full price for the program is $1200. We know that there are those in our target audience who have the passion and commitment but don’t yet have the finances at this level and we will provide as much scholarship support as possible. Application can be made for this support to Nishith.

NLP Master Trainer Nishith Shah

Here is what people are saying about Nishith Shah

I just finished Thought Labs' Program today and it is an experience to learn more about yourself and to model others like nothing else on this planet. From training with several big names like Richard Bandler, John Grinder and Sue Knight (author of NLP at Work), what makes Nishith Shah's training different is he empowers you to model structure of people's experiences all the time during the retreat. Unlike at conferences or hotel venues, there is no off-switch. As such, your habit of modelling and noticing structure continues more effortlessly into the real world. Thoroughly recommend this Program!

There are a very few people I know have committed to making a journey towards excellence. They have insatiable drive to learn more, to become elegant and powerful in their skill set, to become powerful catalyst for change in the lives of everyone that has the pleasure to learn from them. I'm pleased to say that Nishith Shah is one of those people. . And the changed lives of his clients and students tell the sort of a change workers and teacher who embodies the NLP skillset and attitude. He has the skill of a technician and the heart of a teacher. If you have the chance to learn from Nishith, or to join him on one of his journeys of self discovery and growth.. if you want to work with someone who deeply lives his NLP... then I cannot recommend Nishith enough
Michael Perez

I have known Nishith Shah for 10 years and right from the the beginning when he trained with me, I was impressed with his confidence, his sense of humor and his ability to support others to be the best version of themselves. I invited him to present himself on a stage of ”Unique Indian Trainers” because of his talent and his dedication to growth and learning. He always strives to go that extra mile in what ever he does, and even in the way in which he does it. I highly recommend him!
