Chapter 13: The Brain A Broadcasting and Receiving Station for Thought
At the end of this chapter Hill states:
“The “depression” was a blessing in disguise.
It reduced the whole world to a new starting point that gives everyone a new opportunity.”
I believe that statement. For some, it takes something as drastic as an emergency, catastrophe or an unplanned event to cause us to wake up to the world around us. Our brains are stimulated (or exercised) by our interactions with others, with the sharing of ideas, and even normal conversations.
Our brains were created to be sending and receiving stations, and the more we interact with others on a regular basis, the more creative we become. We actually get used to thinking “outside of the box”. In a mastermind group such as ours we begin to pick up thought vibrations and creative ideas from each other because we are essentially on the “same page”. Brainstorming becomes more fun and even, exciting. Levels of trust are increased as we begin tapping into the vast knowledge of each person, especially when they literally say the same thing we’re thinking.
Yes there are geniuses out there who are solitary and are doing it alone but, to me, sharing and comparing ideas with a group of like-minded individuals and stimulating each other is way more fun and rewarding.
