“No individual has sufficient experience, education, native ability, and knowledge to insure the accumulation of

a great fortune, without the cooperation of other people. Every plan you adopt, in your endeavor to accumulate

wealth, should be the joint creation of yourself and every other member of your “Master Mind” group. You may

originate your own plans, either in whole or in part, but SEE THAT THOSE PLANS ARE CHECKED, AND



“If the first plan which you adopt does not work successfully, replace it with a new plan, if this new plan fails to

work, replace it, in turn with still another, and so on, until you find a plan which DOES WORK. Right here is the

point at which the majority of men meet with failure, because of their lack of PERSISTENCE in creating new

plans to take the place of those which fail.


“The most intelligent man living cannot succeed in accumulating money—nor in any other undertaking—without

plans which are practical and workable. Just keep this fact in mind, and remember when your plans fail, that

temporary defeat is not permanent failure. It may only mean that your plans have not been sound. Build other

plans. Start all over again.


“Thomas A. Edison “failed” ten thousand times before he perfected the incandescent electric light bulb.


“Henry Ford accumulated a fortune, not because of his superior mind, but because he adopted and followed

a PLAN which proved to be sound.


“Millions of men go through life in misery and poverty, because they lack a sound plan through which to

accumulate a fortune.


“Your achievement can be no greater than your PLANS are sound.


“You will now be instructed how to build plans which will be practical, viz:—

(a) 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.)

(b) Before forming your “Master Mind” alliance, decide what advantages, and benefits, you may offer the

individual members of your group, in return for their cooperation. No one will work indefinitely without some

form of compensation. No intelligent person will either request or expect another to work without adequate

compensation, although this may not always be in the form of money.

(c) Arrange to meet with the members of your “Master Mind” group at least twice a week, and more often if

possible, until you have jointly perfected the necessary plan, or plans for the accumulation of money.

(d) Maintain PERFECT HARMONY between yourself and every member of your “Master Mind” group. If you

fail to carry out this instruction to the letter, you may expect to meet with failure. The “Master Mind” principle

cannot obtain where PERFECT HARMONY does not prevail.


“No man is ever whipped, until he QUITS—in his own mind.”
