“When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance, becomes available to every individual brain in the group.” Napoleon Hill
"One of the most recent very public examples of the need for a mastermind group occurred during the ongoing Olympics. Simone Biles, already had 30 world and Olympic medals, she has pioneered four signature skills that bear her name — three of those under the Landis’ tutelage — and would add a fifth in Tokyo if she successfully performed a vault so risky that no woman has attempted it in competition." New York Times
Instead, after a hard day of preparation with two 3 ½ hour practices, she was found crying and her mind was troubled & saddened by stress and thoughts of molestation to herself and so many other female gymnasts at the Olympics, which she had been a leader in exposing.
Her mastermind group included her parents, especially her mother, Nellie, her new couple coaching team since 2017, Cecile and Laurent Landi, and specific co-athletes.
The coaches immediately saw her need and sent her home. They were more concerned about Simone as a whole person, rather than only as the leading gymnast & their own student. She was supported by her mastermind group when she dropped out of the competition, continuing to support the other members of the team.
Later, she regrouped and was able to participate on the balance beam near the end of the Olympics and was happy with a lesser trophy. Credit for her courage to do this was given to her support team, her mastermind group, who were a major strength to her.
Luckily, I in Mentoring For Free have entered a group who already have like minds as myself. Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for supporting and believing in me even beforeI believe in myself. Thanks for building a group to help me dissolve my fears and move forward to success in total harmony and without any judgment. Thanks to all who are here ready to add to and receive from this mastermind group!
