Chapter 10 – The Power of the Master Mind
When I was in school I hated doing group projects. It seemed to me that one or two in the group didn’t care about doing a good job, and slacked off leaving the majority of the work to other group members. But every once in a while, the group consisted of a group of students who did care and maximized their strengths, bounced ideas off each other and formed a team that did an outstanding project while having fun working on it.
In my software development career I’ve seen example of stellar teams who produced applications that amazed the customers and even themselves. When you have the privilege of being part of those teams, you can feel the positive energy flowing in the group and there’s a special magic in the experience.
Napoleon Hill says: “The brain functions in a similar fashion [like a bank of batteries]. This accounts for the fact that some brains are more efficient than others, and leads to this significant statement—a group of brains coordinated (or connected) in a spirit of harmony, will provide more thought-energy than a single brain, just as a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery.”
In our networking marketing career, we have the privilege of being part of the MFF group, and have access to the power of the master mind. I’ve been on many calls that went over an hour and a half, yet felt like a few minutes. The conversation twists and turns in directions that nobody could have imagined. When people participate and tell their stories and experiences, magic happens.
