Chapter 10- The Power of the Mastermind
We must have a mastermind to put our plans for success into action. Plans are useless without power to put them into action. The mastermind group is where we get that power. The definition of power according to Mr. Hill is organized and intelligently directed knowledge. In order to have what Mr. Hill is referring to we must have an organized effort of two or more people who work toward a definite end in a spirit of harmony. There is no charge for this. It just happens when two or more people work toward a definite end in a spirit of harmony. With two minds working in harmony a third mind comes about by blending ideas together.
Mr. Hill says "Power is required for the accumulation of money. Power is also necessary for the retention of money after it has been accumulated." This is a quote that is worth memorizing because we can learn a valuable lesson from it.
When we work with a mastermind group in the spirit of sympathy and harmony, we take on the nature and the habits as well as the power of thought of the whole group. Another component of this mastermind group is we must recognize there is an infinite intelligence working with us. It is infallible while the five senses of humanity are not. By recognizing that there is an infinite intelligence using our desires for riches and persistence to gain those riches becomes much easier. When a mastermind group reads together like we do here at mentoring for free and then think and meditate about what we read there is a power that comes from this procedure. This power will be the product of all of us who have a desire and persistence to put our thoughts and plans into action. This is the power of mentoring for free because we are networkers with a plan to attract people to us no matter what company is involved.
Thank you for letting me share.
