Chapter10-Power of the Mastermind
The Driving Force
“No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third,
invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.
“Analyze the record of any man who has accumulated a great fortune,
and many of those who have accumulated modest fortunes, and you will
find that they have either consciously, or unconsciously employed the
“Master Mind” principle.
“When a group of individual brains is coordinated and function in\ harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance, becomes
available to every individual brain in the group.
“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.”
“No man is an island, Entire of itself; Every man is a piece of the
continent, A part of the main” John Donne
All human beings necessarily depend on one other, I cannot imagine
managing everything in life by my lonesome. These past days and weeks
are proof of just that. During the lengthy illness and the resulting
loss of Connie, I was blessed with the support of so many people.
Starting with my sons and daughters-in-law, Jeremy/Sara and Jason/Heidi,
whose love and support was a buttress. I had a mastermind of medical
professional and Hospice care specialist, spiritual and inspirational
counselors, and a chorus of friends, mentors, and many more with kind
words of support, encouragement, and hope.
I know without a doubt that even as I work at building a better me,
growing a network marketing business, a strong customer base, and a
team of like-minded partners, I am a composite of many minds over my
lifetime. I carry the influence of the strong work ethic of my Dad
and the caring love for the family of my Mom. I can still hear the
voices of Bible teachers, professors, and ministers who mentored me
in all matters of faith and trust in God the Father.
In my mind stay lives the instructions of all the managers, coaches,
and trainers I had in business be it insurance, personal development,
networking, and necessary skills in advertising, marketing, and team
Today, I choose Napoleon Hill instructs in Think and Grow Rich and
follow the power found in associating with the right mastermind group.
A group of open-minded thinkers such as in Mentoring for Free. who
\comes together is a spirit of harmony working to build each member
forming a powerful third mind. Most success comes from a team working
for the good of all members.
"To think health when surrounded by the appearances of disease or to
think riches when in the midst of the appearances of poverty, requires
power, but whoever acquires this power becomes a mastermind. That person
can conquer fate and can have what he or she wants." Wallace D Waffles
I will always be grateful for the harmony I have found in this mastermind
I have felt here, an energy which flows from each member on the calls, in
each lesson written, in the participants during the calls, and the level
of the skills training being given. It is this power that has been my
strength for all these months I have been on Mentoring for Free. I feel
the touch of the belief that you have shared with me.
Many thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for the gift of this mastermind
and a system that served us so well. I am grateful to all my mastermind
partners for the gifts of support, encouragement, and wisdom you bring
to the table every week.
