The purpose of this paper is to construct an algorithm for approximating a common element of the set of solutions of a finite family of generalized mixed equilibrium problems, the set of $f$-fixed points of a finite family of $f$-pseudocontractive mappings, and the set of solutions of a finite family of variational inequality problems for Lipschitz monotone mappings in real reflexive Banach spaces.
