Chapter 10 - Power of the Mastermind

Hill wrote "There exists a great unseen stream of 
POWER, which may be compared to a river; except that one 
side flows in one direction, carrying all who get into 
that side of the stream, onward and upward to WEALTH—and 
the other side flows in the opposite direction, carrying 
all who are unfortunate enough to get into it (and not 
able to extricate themselves from it), downward to misery 
and POVERTY.

Every man who has accumulated a great fortune, has recognized 
the existence of this stream of life. It consists of one’s 
THINKING PROCESS."

think, not WHAT to think." - Michael Dlouhy

Thomas A. Edison stated “Five percent of the people think;
ten percent of the people think they think;
and the other eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”

That is amazing - "eighty-five percent would rather die than think.”
But, we see it all the time.  We invite people to join this
Mastermind group because we know it works in our personal deveopment
and yet,  the eighty-five percent that we invite don't stay
long enough to even begin to understand the impact this could
have on their lives.

Marianne Williamson has stated “You may believe that you are responsible 
for what you do, but not for what you think. The truth is that you are 
responsible for what you think, because it is only at this level that you can 
exercise choice. What you do comes from what you think. ”

As Hill pointed out the only way to get out of the "negative stream" 
of life to the "positive stream" of life is by changing our thinking. 
Being a part of a Mastermind Group will assist in changing our thinking,
recognizing we don't know it all, we may not be thinking clearly and we 
don't have to do everything by ourselves because we can learn from each other.

The eighty-five persent will move on looking for the secret to success
not recognizing they just stumbled on the answer and failed to see what
was available to them because they did not understand how thinking would
"make money and they wanted money fast." 
 
The riches is not in the money, the riches is in the person we become and
the person we become is the one that people will "know, like and trust" and
will want to be in business with.
