The Chapter10 Power of the Master Mind
Driving Force

If you were to join me on a road trip around West Texas for a one-hour
drive in any direction you will be seeing massive windmills. Texas has
over 40 windmill farms that have almost 13,000 windmills. The average
height is 260 feet with 3 blades over 60 feet long. All connected they
are a force that can affect the lives of millions. It is in combining
or connecting of those windmills that the real power comes. Such is the
power of a harmonious mastermind.

Power may be defined as “organized and intelligently directed knowledge.” 
Power, as the term is here used, refers to an organized effort, sufficient
to enable an individual to transmute desire into its monetary equivalent. 
An 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.”
Napoleon Hill

How do we acquire this kind of power? With power being “organized knowledge,”
we will find the sources of knowledge by the following:

a. Infinite Intelligence that source of knowledge which may be contacted
with the aid of Creative Imagination and heeding the quiet voice of a
Higher Power.

b. Accumulated Experience being those accumulated experiences of man, which
has been organized and recorded found in any well-equipped public library or
being taught in public schools and colleges, where it has been classified and
organized.

c. Experience and research the combined data men are gathering, classifying,
and organizing new facts daily. This is the source to which one must turn
when knowledge is not available through “accumulated experience.” Here, too,
the creative imagination is most often be used.

My desire is to be a successful network marketer. I know now, to accomplish
this I must first have a burning desire, then fans that desire with faith in
God, myself, my mentors, a proven system, and a harmonious mastermind.

No One, again No One has the power within oneself to reach that success without
having a team of fellow believers in networker marketers, a harmonious mastermind
of critical thinkers sharing with one another. This is what I have found here with
Mentoring for Free.

As Napoleon Hill wrote, “No individual may have great power without availing
himself of the “mastermind.” In a preceding chapter, instructions were given
for the creation of PLANS for the purpose of translating desire into its monetary
equivalent. If you carry out these instructions with Persistence and intelligence
and use discrimination in the selection of your “Master Mind” group, your
objective will have been halfway reached, even before you begin to
recognize it.”

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy, to all the mentors, all who participate in
the weekly calls for being tremendous mastermind you are.
