Chapter 10 Power of the MasterMind the driving Force.


To think and grow rich I must have power to accumulate and retain riches. It is not enough to wish


for riches, a burning desire and definite plan must be empowered to produce positive results. No one


individual is complete in this quest without outside help from many sources. A mastermind group is


absolutely essential. Mr. Hill states that, Mr. Carnegie’s Master Mind group consisted of a staff of


approximately fifty men, with whom he surrounded himself, for the DEFINITE PURPOSE of manufacturing


and marketing steel. He attributed his entire fortune to the POWER he accumulated through this “Master




Henry Ford whipped poverty, illiteracy, and ignorance by allying himself with great minds, whose vibrations of
thought he absorbed into his own mind. 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.” Both Ford and Carnegie
knew the value of a mastermind group. Others, like connected batteries, furnish more brain power and energy
than what one individual could and would provide.


Usually power is associated with a lot of Ego and Greed. The I, ME and MY world prevails. By contrast, I see

here at MFF, teamwork and unity and harmony. This is unique and wholesome.- 'Priceless' ….to be a mentor

with a servants' heart. I am grateful to each of you for your contributions of thought, word and deed.

P.S. I'm reminded of a song we sang in High School, “No Man Is An Island”... no man stands alone.
