Lesson 10 Master Minds
"Men take on the nature and the habits and the POWER OF THOUGHT of those with whom they associate in a spirit of sympathy and harmony." Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich.
I bare witness to this statement in the most profound way. I grew up in an era where the average black male would not live past the age of 23 due to the Gang & Drug Wars that infiltrated our communities. In those days, if you wanted to survive, you had better be associated with infamous individuals of influence. In my ignorance; Pimps, Hustlers, Thugs & Gang Leaders were mine. My environment during those times did not provide much else, so not only did I master the mentality & characteristics of these types of individuals, I took-it to a whole new level. To my demise the "...spirit of sympathy and harmony," was in accord with the wrong out look on life for me. I had no idea that there was another world out there beyond our neighborhoods.
Today, it is a whole new day & way in this ever-evolving life. I have this saying that, "The only change is what seasons bring" but, now I have to re-phrase that..."The only change is what You Choose to bring." I have been allying myself with Innovative Master Minds in specific areas in my life mainly with Thinkers & Doers associated with the spirit of sympathy & harmony in Optimal Health, Creative Arts & Self-Sustaining Wealth Accumulation. I've only been 'All-In' a mere 6 months & I'm already seeing some ardent results in the process. Man, it is a wonderful feeling knowing that You Can Live your dreams & obtain your aspirations an share Your Gifts to the World.
Increasing my self worth to serve & help others is by far the best thing I've chose to do & if I had not taken the actions outlined in Napoleon Hills Think and Grow Rich Principles, I would not be meeting so many new beautiful people full of life, joy & compassion in all that they do. I find myself in positions of power & authority that I did not gnow that I had on top of building character of virtues & integrity. I will not fail to mention that if it wasn't for Michael Dlouhy's Colors-CD, I would most likely be lacking in the skills necessary to commune with so many diverse personas. It has help me to build rapport some of the most innovative master minds to associate with & we are growing in number. Although, Innovative ideas come through individual minds, the tangible manifestation of that idea is built from multiple master minds sympathetic to the cause. No 1 can go at it alone & expect to build something big. Remember the old saying, "Birds of the same feather, flock together." Are Soaring like Eagles over-seeing your life or are you a caged Cockateil Subjected to a life?
