THE CHAPTER 10
POWER OF THE MASTER MIND

 

Early in the 20th century when the first vacuum cleaners came on

the market a very industrious salesman was calling on some rural

homes. His plan was to knock on the door and when the homemaker

opened the door to toss in a bag filled with sand, dirt, ashes, and othe

r nasties. He would then start his spill how he represented the best

cleaner on the market, give all the virtue and benefit this machine offered,

being sure to let her see and touch it.

   He finally said, “Ma’am, if you show me where the nearest outlet is I will

show you how you clean all of this up.” Her reply was, “Sir, we haven’t

brought electric to house yet, let ME get you a broom and dustpan.” He

may have had a great plan, but truly did not have sufficient POWER.

   How many times have I tossed the Network Marketing grenade at the

feet of prospect or customer only to realize I lack the sufficient power to

finish with action? Why is it that I Have felt the need to have all information

first and then I could make it in this business, all by myself, but as usual I

was coming up short? For me the answer is in the following statement:

Plans multiplied by sufficient Power will result into Action. It is this

Power which is essential for successful in the accumulation of money.

I really need the power that comes from being in a mastermind group. Truly,

there is power in numbers.

   “POWER may be defined as “organized and intelligently directed

knowledge.”  Power, as the term is here used, refers to organized effort,

sufficient to enable an individual to transmute Desire into its monetary

equivalent.  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.”

The sources for organized knowledge are: Infinite Intelligence as in the aid of

Creative Imagination, Accumulated Experience as in a library or schools and

Experiment and research as in daily action and learning from other’s actions.

Mr. Hill refer to this as “GAINING POWER THOUGH THE “MASTER MIND”.

The “Master Mind” may be defined as: “Coordination of knowledge and effort,

in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a

definite purpose.”

   If I am to succeed in Networking Marketing I must be active in a mastermind

group. I thankful for every mastermind group I in which have been involved. From

each I have gain great rewards. The MFF group has been truly a God sent. It is

here I found a spirit of Perfect Harmony, where many minds come together to

create a super “third mind”. As Michael say often it’s a place where, “We learn

how to think, not what to think.”

   When we are in the pursuit of money, the accumulation of wealth, we are able to

woo it with the mixture of Faith plus Desire Plus Persistence applied to a Plan

set into Action. I will be in stream of riches with help and all the  encouragement

I have gain at MFF.

   Thank you Michael and Linda for the dream you started 11 years ago.
