Chapter 10 The Power of the Mastermind
In this chapter Hill reminds us that it takes great
power to transmute a desire into its monetary equivalent.
And how do we do that?
The only way is through participation in a mastermind
defined as "Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a
spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the
attainment of a definite purpose."
How well does it work? When Hill interviewed
500 of the wealthiest people in the world he discovered that
participation in a mastermind was the one thing they all had
in common. In other words, it works very well.
Part of the mastermind process is sharing ideas through
brainstorming and giving feedback. How often have you
been on a Mentoring for Free call and listened to someone
share something. Maybe you've heard it before, but they
presented the idea in a little different way and suddenly a
light bulb goes off in you head and you think to yourself "oh
that's what that means," or "what a great idea I can't wait to try
that in my business" Or, "I've never understood that until now."
Everyone on the call comes from their own unique background and
has had their own experiences unlike those of anyone else. That makes
them just different enough to have their own way of looking at things.
In other words, we can learn from every other person on the call
and they can learn from us, but only if we all speak up. When
Michael asks us to share our brilliance a big part of that is sharing
our unique perspective because no one else looks at things exactly
the way we do.
Another part of the mastermind process is "the increased energy created
through that alliance," that Hill says becomes available to every
individual brain in the group as ideas are expressed and shared. He
gives as an example Henry Ford who overcame a background of poverty
and illiteracy in a very short time through masterminding with other brains
and sharing their power. And he used the power to become one of the
richest men in America at that time.
If you take the new idea or perspective, and the increase in
energy you experience as you have these kinds of insights, and
if you put them into play through daily action in your business,
your life will change forever.
Do you want to increase your personal power and accelerate the process
of achieving success in network marketing? IF so, participate in the MFF
mastermind sessions, starting with the Think and Grow Rich calls, and always
contribute your unique perspective. The payoff will be enormous.
