Chapter 10-Power of The Mastermind

“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

All power that may be attained starts with and is headed by
Infinite Intelligence. Next comes the coordination of two or more in
a spirit of harmony, and work toward a definite objective.
Harmonious members will place themselves in a position with the
help of an alliance, so to absorb power directly from the great
universal storehouse of Infinite Intelligence. Being the greatest
of all sources of power, Infinite Intelligence is the source to
which the genius turns. The very source that every great leader
turns to, whether he may be conscious of the fact or not.

The next time you get the opportunity go to your favorite auto dealer.
look into the trunk of one of the hybrid cars or take a trip to your local
golf course and closely in the back compartment. There you will find a 
set of batteries with cables connecting them all together. The reason for
this is simple it takes all the batteries working together to make the
machine work, one battery cannot make it alone.

You have probably heard or been told “If is to be done it is up to me!”
There may be a ring of truth in this statement for we must take action on
our part but it is not the whole truth. No one, again not one successful
person has ever accumulated wealth without the help and support of others.
Not Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, or Mahatma Gandhi.

“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.”
Napoleon Hill

At the beginning after seeing lessons written by Dawn Meyers, Michael Dlouhy,
Ken Klemm, Tuula Rands, and many more on the Think and Grow Rich Lessons site,
I realized the power of a harmonious mastermind. Just like looking in the trunk
of a hybrid car,  one lesson is connected to another and another, etc. A mastermind
is the giving and gaining of strength and support of one another. As I have heard
in these lessons the power of being coachable and coming together as a mastermind
that we create a third mind with more power than the sum of these parts.

There is a  power for each of us when we mix our Desire with Faith stir in
Persistence, having a Plan and taking Action.

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for making and staying with your plan. Thanks
‚Äčto all those mentors and participates in the calls.
