Power of the Mastermind
The first two statements at the beginning of this chapter caught my eye; printed in all caps.
POWER IS REQUIRED FOR THE ACCUMULATION OF MONEY!
POWER IS NECESSARY FOR THE RETENTION OF MONEY AFTER IT HAS BEEN ACCUMULATED.
Power is enhanced and supported when you have a Mastermind group surrounding you.
Napoleon defines a Mastermind group as: Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between 2 or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.
Someone's purpose could be anything; buying a car, deciding whether or not to go to college, deciding on a college to attend, what's for dinner and so on. Obviously, for our purpose we have Mentoring For Free for the support and knowledge of people who are all seeking to succeed in their particular business. We are all united in the betterment of everyone within our group.
Napoleon explained two characteristics of the Mastermind principle. The first is economic in nature. The other he describes as psychic. This particular characteristic is pretty amazing. When I think of those people who used the power of a Mastermind, I am awestruck.
Henry Ford had his group, but it wasn't just for him. Every single one of those men benefited by being a part of his Mastermind group.
Look at Mahatma Gandhi-how millions of people followed him, united and benefited from their association with him.
The message I received from reading this chapter this time around is this: Everyone helps everyone else as a united group of like minded individuals and that makes us all stronger.
“Men take on the nature and the habits and the POWER OF THOUGHT of those with whom they associate in a spirit of sympathy and harmony.” I choose to associate with winners. And all of us are winners for belonging to our Mentoring for Free Mastermind group.
Thank you Michael & Linda, Nathan and the rest of the crew.
