Think & Grow Rich Lessons

It is a well known fact that Henry Ford began his business career under the handicap of poverty, illiteracy, and ignorance. It is an equally well known fact that,

within the inconceivably short period of ten years, Mr. Ford mastered these three handicaps, and that within twenty-five years he made himself one of the

richest men in America. Connect with this fact, the additional knowledge that Mr. Ford’s most rapid strides became noticeable, from the time he became a personal

friend of Thomas A. Edison, and you will begin to understand what the influence of one mind upon another can accomplish. Go a step farther, and consider the

fact that Mr. Ford’s most outstanding achievements began from the time that he formed the acquaintances of Harvey Firestone, John Burroughs, and Luther

Burbank, (each a man of great brain capacity), and you will have further evidence that POWER may be produced through friendly alliance of minds. - Hill


If you are in the side of the stream of POWER which leads to poverty, this may serve as an oar, by which you may propel yourself over into the

other side of the stream. It can serve you ONLY through application and use. Merely reading, and passing judgment on it, either one way or

another, will in no way benefit you. - Hill


Herbert V. Prochnow has stated "There is a time when we must firmly choose the course which we will follow or the endless drift of

events will make the decision for us.”


You read above the importance of Henry Ford's friends (Mastermind) in his success.  He listened to them .  You have here a

mentor who has had tremendous success in the very business in which You want to have success.  There are, also, others

here who have listened to him and are having their own success.  What are You going to do with it?


You read Hill's analogy of a stream and an oar.  We live in modern times.  Let's consider an electric boat motor (or trolling motor).

The motor runs on a battery. The stronger each cell of the battery, and the more cells in the battery the stronger the battery.

The stronger the battery the more ability to propel Yourself from the poverty side of the stream to the

side that leads to riches.  But only if You connect the battery!  We have here at MFF a tremendous battery (Mastermind).  What

are You going to do with it?  You can sit there an analyze it and say that's a really nice battery (Mastermind) or connect it and

begin to propel Yourself to success.  The choice is Yours and Yours alone.


Thank You Linda & Michael Dlouhy for having the foresight to start MFF, and be an example to us all.  Thank You Bob Shoaf for

following Your hunches which have in turn inspired hunches of mine that are having success.  Thank You Awesome Mastermind

for being the battery that propel's my boat to the right side of the stream.


Eternally Grateful,
