In Chapter 10, Hill describes the Power of the Mastermind. He states that many people want to be rich; but not all acquire wealth. The few who are wealthy must work to maintain their status. He goes on to prove how wealth and poverty can be interchangeable. For example, during the 1929 Stock Market Crash and the Great Depression, a lot of people lost everything. If they wanted to regain that position, they needed to have a burning desire.
Hill seemed to feel that Ghandi was the most powerful man in the world. Although he was a passive male, he managed to influence millions of people. In order to gain power, one must have a plan of action. It simply is not enough to wish or dream for it. It is also helpful to join a Mastermind group. This is where great minds put their heads together. Mentoring for free is such a group. It consists of like-minded individuals who have similar challenges. When we meet on a daily or weekly basis, we discuss common concerns.
I find it amazing how easy it is to relate to other peoples posts. It is almost as though they are mind readers; Either that or once we put our thoughts into the universe, the solutions find a way back to us. In any event, it helps to be part of a Mastermind group. That is where one listens and speaks to others, while balancing their strengths and needs.
