Chapter 10

The Power of the Mastermind

 

Hill states, “It is a well known fact that a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery. It is also a well known fact that an individual battery will provide energy in proportion to the number and capacity of the cells it contains.”

 

I would also like to share a story a good friend and mentor of mine told me. The story was about four water buffalos and one lion. Each day, the lion would go to hunt these water buffalos. But each day he would come up empty handed because these buffalos would combine as a team and stand in a certain way so that if the lion would attack, he would get horns instead of them.

 

However, one day, the ego of the four water buffalos overcame their goal of safety. And eventually they separated from their group. By doing this, the lion was able to pick them apart one by one, until all of them were gone. Now, most people would say that the lion killed the buffalos. But, truthfully, it was the egos of the water buffalos.

 

That's what a mastermind group will do for you. It can help you grow the power to accumulate riches. But if your ego becomes more to you than your riches, then you would lose that power, and lose your riches.

 

So you pick, is it your ego or your riches?
