Chapter 7

Organized Planning

“Temporary defeat should mean only one thing, the certain knowledge that there is something wrong with your plan. Millions of men go through life in misery and poverty, because they lack a sound plan through which to accumulate a fortune.” ~ Napoleon Hill

The statement above stood out to me for two reasons:  the word Temporary, and the idea that all we have to do is change the plan!  Many people think that if they fail at network marketing it is time to quit, throw in the towel, or move on to the next BIG idea.  They may not realize that their plan needs to be adjusted and that their failure is only temporary.  So how do they discover this?  Well, it brings me to the next point that Napoleon discussed: 

“Ally yourself with a group of as many people as you may need for the creation, and carrying out of your plan, or plans for the accumulation of money—making use of the “Master Mind” principle described in a later chapter. (Compliance with this instruction is absolutely essential. Do not neglect it.)” ~ Napoleon Hill

We cannot do it alone folks!  Sometimes we need someone to tell us what we need to “tweak” in order to be successful.  Other times, it might just be that we need someone to rally behind us and motivate us to keep going. 

I have to admit that through my personal issues in life, I have become extremely independent.  I have learned how to do things on my own, without the help of anyone…because I had to.  However, when it comes to making money online, it did not take long for me to realize that I NEED my Mastermind group.  I NEED their wisdom, guidance, and positivity to keep going. 

Have you ever tried putting together one of those “put together furniture pieces”?  The instructions that come with those are not very clear are they?  A few times I have put a piece in the wrong place, only to have to go back and undo it!  This can be very frustrating!  However, when someone else helps me and we put our heads together, the process seems to go much smoother.

This is the way the Mastermind group works!  Thank you Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this venue for us to learn and grow.  Thank you John and Karla Wiser for having my back!  And Thank you to all of the great leaders here at MFF and to those who have downloaded my book!
