Chapter 10 Power of the Mastermind

POWER OF THE MASTER MIND THE DRIVING FORCE

The Ninth Step toward Riches

In today’s World, technology (knowledge) is advancing a greater rate than any one man can absorb. In previous chapters we have been developing the Principles that Hill basis prognosis of converting Dreams into Riches. Even in Hill’s day advancements in Knowledge were beyond the capacity of any one Brain.

In the opening sentences to this Chapter Hill states the following: “POWER is essential for success in the accumulation of money. PLANS are inert and useless, without sufficient POWER to translate them into ACTION.
POWER may be defined as “organized and intelligently directed KNOWLEDGE.” Power, as the term is here used, refers to ORGANIZED effort, sufficient to enable an individual to transmute DESIRE into its monetary equivalent. ORGANIZED effort is produced through the coordination of effort of two or more people, who work toward a DEFINITE end, in a spirit of harmony.
POWER IS REQUIRED FOR THE ACCUMULATION OF MONEY!
POWER IS NECESSARY FOR THE RETENTION OF MONEY AFTER IT HAS BEEN ACCUMULATED!
Power is the key to everything. We have seen in a previous Chapter the three types of knowledge which when organised via definite plans can be the source of power in any one Brain. Great entrepreneurs like Henry Ford realised that to achieve their goals they required the knowledge (Power) of other’s Brains. These Brains were required to work in a Spirit of Harmony.
We can draw an analogy with the electric cell, which has only a small amount of electrical power (energy). Combine a number of these cells into a connected group Battery and the power is increased many fold. Take it a stage further and combine the batteries into a larger group and the Power (Energy) is increased exponential, great enough to drive a car or machinery.
Apply this principle to Brains and it can be seen that two brains working in harmony will create a third of greater capacity than either of the original brains. Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie had 50 plus Brains working in harmony to bring about the Automobile and Steel Industries.  
Apply this to our Businesses, whether MLM or something else, by the careful selection of your Master Mind Group you can achieve more power and move your Business quicker because of the increased knowledge each member brings. Ensure though that harmony is maintained, all members have a positive attitude and everyone has some specialised knowledge to enhance the Group. Don’t associate with people of a “Poverty” Mind Set. Only associate those with a “Riches” Mind Set if you are seeking riches.
