Chapter 10-Power of The Mastermind:
A Driving Force

“POWER is essential for success in the accumulation of money. Power
may be defined as “organized and intelligently directed knowledge.”
Power, as the term is here used, refers to the organized effort,
sufficient to enable an individual to transmute desire into its
monetary equivalent.  An organized effort is produced through the
coordination of effort of two or more people, who work toward a
definite end, in a spirit of harmony.

"Power is required for the accumulation of money! Power is necessary
for the retention of money after it has been accumulated!”
Napoleon Hill

“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other
succeed.
If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who
falls alone is in real trouble.
Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But
how can one be warm alone?
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 4:9-12

“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

Hill began this book by telling the reader that “Thoughts for things”. The
power of thoughts has changed the world throughout the history of man all
the way from drawing on cave walls, the idea of the wheel, and to put man
into space. My great-grandparents witnessed the electrifying of homes for the
first time, the flight of the first planes, and the harmony of a country working
together two won world wars.

Every advancement, accomplishment, and enhancement may have started as a thought
in the mind of one person, but we can be assured that the final completion can
as a result of the power of thought of a harmonious group of people working
together, a Mastermind.

This is exactly what I found when I came to Mentoring of Free, a harmonious group
of open-minded critical thinkers coming together to help, encourage, support, and
to share ideas, hunches, and skills necessary as a network marketer. Here I have
found mentors, partners, and the power of thought which has energized me and my
activity.

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy, to all who have mentored me and those who bring
their wisdom to the weekly calls.

PS: “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. Wattles
