Chapter 10 - The Power of the Mastermind

Henri Nouwen has said "The greatest trap in our life is not 
success, popularity or power, but self-rejection. 

A lot of us come to this Think & Grow Rich Lessons platform
with baggage.  We believe all kinds of things that are not true
because we don't believe in ourselves, we have low self esteem,
we have been "put down" by others,  and we tell ourselves that
others are better than we are.

We listen on the calls, we don't speak up, we don't contribute
because we think we don't have anything great to add and everyone
knows more than we do.  We don't post a lesson because we believe
we don't know how or what to write.  We tell ourselves we learn
more by listening than by talking, etc. etc. etc.

We have put ourselves in, as Henri Houwen said, "the trap of self rejection."

BUT THERE IS HOPE, IF we stay here long enough!  

Hill states “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.”

IF WE STAY HEREE LONG ENOUGH, we will take on the nature of
this mastermind and grows in self development and we get rid of
the feeling of "not being good enough" and realize that we do 
have something to contribute and with that power that we gain from
this Mastermind we can be in control of our future.

Barbara De Angelis said it well, "No one is in control of your 
happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything 
about yourself or your life that you want to change."

Eric Hoffer stated "The only way to predict the future is to have 
power to shape the future." 

We do have the power to change our future, get rid of the negative
beliefs we have carried in our heads and become what we were meant to

The Think & Grow Rich Lessons is a powerful tool that we have in
our toolbox, we just have to open the toolbox and use the tools.
