POWER is essential for success in the accumulation of money. PLANS are inert and useless, without sufficient POWER to translate them into ACTION. This chapter will describe the method by which an individual may attain and apply POWER.

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.


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.”

Looking back at my life I could've avoided many negative situations if I would've been involved in a mastermind.  There would've been people to offer advise and life lessons to help me avoid certain downfalls that I've experienced in life.  I could've avoided people that were only interested in selfish motives and took advantage of my lack of knowledge on certain subjects...But I've learned many life lessons from the mistakes that I've made along my journey!   Now that I've experienced the POWER of the mastermind there's no turning back!  I've seen the light!  I remember meeting a lady that was an addict, she told me that early in life she was a great mother and a loving person that would do anything for her children.  She went on to say that she went to a party one night, and was convinced to try crack.  At that moment the loving and nuturing mother was changed forever!  She continued to chase that "high", lost her kids and ended up in prision.   As she finished her story she said that once she experienced that first "high" there was no turning back...she couldn't go back to the innocent woman that she use to be!  She stated that she'd been exposed to a whole new world!   I recently wondered where that woman is today...As I studied this chapter I thought what if a person decided to experience success throught the POWER of the mastermind and made a decision not to allow defeat and poverty to ever re-enter their life.    Poverty may, and generally does, voluntarily take the place of riches. When riches take the place of poverty, the change is usually brought about through well conceived and carefully executed PLANS. Poverty needs no plan. It needs no one to aid it, because it is bold and ruthless. Riches are shy and timid. They have to be “attracted.”

ANYBODY can WISH for riches, and most people do, but only a few know that a definite plan, plus a BURNING DESIRE for wealth, are the only dependable means of accumulating wealth.

No individual may have great power without availing himself of the “Master Mind.”    “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.”   GREAT POWER CAN BE ACCUMULATED THROUGH NO OTHER PRINCIPLE! 

Thank you Linda and Michael Dlouhy for creating this amazing mastermind and a special thank you to the members of this very powerful mastermind.
