Chapter 10 Power of the Master Mind

“A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but
two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better,
for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12

“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.” Napoleon Hill

I discovered very early in life that I was never going to go anywhere
or get anything or connect with anyone without a source of
power. There was no preparing the field for planting without
the power of a tractor. Cotton could not be hoed or picked without
the power in the hands that did the work.

These 50 years I have been blessed with Connie in my life could
not have been without the power of attraction and persuasion on
Connie and my part, the power of commitment as we worked together
as two batteries linked.

Hills writes,  Power is essential for success in the accumulation
of money. Power is necessary for the retention of money.”

It is a cold winter morning; you get into your car reach the
start button and nothing happens the battery is dead. You call
a neighbor or a good friend to give you a boost. With a pair
of jumper cables connect the two batteries enough power is
shared, and your engine turns over, coming alive.

You are building your networking business, but this morning you
are down, drained of energy. You lost a customer, a team member
quit, told by your mother to get a real job and so on and so on.
What to do?

I have found my answer is to get out the jumper cable get on a
call with my mentor and my mastermind group, as Hill says power
is gained through the Mastermind.

“No individual may have great power without availing himself of
the “Master Mind.” In a preceding chapter, instructions were given
for the creation of PLANS for the purpose of translating DESIRE
into its monetary equivalent. If you carry out these instructions
with PERSISTENCE and intelligence and use discrimination in the
selection of your “Master Mind” group, your objective will have
been halfway reached, even before you begin to recognize it.”

I will be forever grateful to this Mastermind at Mentoring for
Free. Everyone on these calls has been just one more battery
linked together giving me Power I needed at that moment every
day.

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for the energy you bring and
share with us every week. Bob Shoaf, I am grateful to be connected
with you and the power you share with me when I need it.

A very special thanks to every one of you who receive my e-book
​and allow me to share with you weekly.
