“POWER may be defined as “organized and intelligently directed
KNOWLEDGE.”  Power, as the term is here used, refers to ORGANIZED
effort, sufficient to enable an individual to transmute DESIRE
into its monetary equivalent.  ORGANIZED effort is produced through
the coordination of effort of two or more people, who work toward
a DEFINITE end, in a spirit of harmony.

A phrase that is often used today is “power stroke.” In baseball,
a batter who hits for extra bases is said to have a power stroke.
In biology, the term power stroke it refers to the molecular
interactions of muscle contraction. In firearm handling, the term
power stroke refers to racking the slide after inserting a fresh
magazine to chamber a round. I could not find the origin of this
phrase, but most likely its use started with the development of the
combustion engine. It refers to the stroke of a cyclic motor which
generates force.

I am fascinated with the combustion engine. Growing up on the farm
I helped my dad rebuild our tractors’ engines. He taught me how a
four stroke engine worked with its four cycle: intake, compression,
power, exhaust. The power stroke is the stage of the cycle of an
internal combustion engine in which the piston is driven outward by
the expansion of gases, which has been ignited by an energy spark. It
is this power stroke that gives the engine it’s strength to move a
vehicle, work machinery, and generate more energy.

Hill wrote, “Power is required for the accumulation of money! Power
is necessary for the retention of money!” This power, which for our
purpose we will refer to it as “organized knowledge,” is acquired with
the aid of creative imagination given by infinite intelligence, or from
the accumulated experience found in books and schools, or from the
experiment and research of our lives and those of others. It is in this
last source of power that we find the use of the master mind group.

“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.”

This is my reason to be here at this MFF group. I have participated in
network marketing training given by my company, or attend generic training
on personal growth or MLM training. It is here, MFF, that I found the
perfect harmony that I had been missing. With MFF, I feel surrounded with
advice, counsel, and personal cooperation of those who are willing to give

There is an energy with MFF and TGRL which is missing in the other master
mind programs. MFF is my “power stroke” which I know will take me to the
level in this profession that is now prepared for me. I have learned how
to think, not just what to think. I know that it is none of my business
with what others think about me, my business is what I think about me.
I can stand 10 feet tall and be bullet-proof.

Thanks to Michael, Linda, Bob and everyone who writes a lesson and speaks
up on the calls. My gratitude to those download the e-Book and allow me
to help them.
