Having a Mastermind Group is A HUGE factor in building your business. In Napoleon Hills ( Think and Grow Rich ) he talks about the power of two minds that come together for a common cause. When 2 or more people put their minds together and mix this with belief the results produce 100 fold.
Mr. Hill studied 500 of the worlds most successful people for over twenty years and put this formula in 14 chapters. In chapter 5 called Specialized Knowledge he talks of how knowledge alone will not attract money unless it is organized, and intelligently directed, through practical plans of action, to the definite end of accumulation of money.
You must first learn how to organize and use knowledge after you acquire it.
First understand “educate” comes from the Latin word “educo,” meaning to educe, to draw out, to Develop from within.
An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent , without violating the rights of others.
A perfect example of what this means and how to grasp its meaning is looking at Henry Ford during the World War. Mr Ford was called “an ignorant pacifist” by a Chicago newspaper. Mr Ford took the paper to court where their Attorneys tried to embarrass him with a variety of questions.
“Who was Benedit Arnold and “How many soldiers did the British send over to America to put down the Rebellion of 1776?” Which Mr. Ford replied, “I do not know the exact number of soldiers but I have heard it was a considerably larger number than ever went back.” After growing tired of this questioning Mr. Ford leaned over and pointed his finger at the lawyers and said,”If I should really WANT to answer any of your foolish questions, let me remind you that I have a row of push buttons on my desk, and by pushing the right button, I can summon to my aid men who can answer ANY question I desire. Now could you kindly tell me why I should clutter up my mind with general knowledge, for the purpose of being able to answer questions, when I have men around me who can supply any knowledge in which I require?”
This was an answer of a well educated man who knows how to organize it into definite plans of ACTION . Through the assistance of his “MASTERMIND GROUP,”Henry Ford had at his command all the specialized Knowledge he needed to become one of the wealthiest men in America.
Keep in mind that this was in the early 1930″s. Today with the internet and technology at your fingertips, putting together a couple of people who want to accomplish the same goal, add their own strength’s and weaknesses. You can move extremely fast in attracting wealth in your life.
I would challenge you to start one if you don’t already have one. Let the forum be POSITIVE only, no negativity. It could be in a blog or on a 3 way call.
I would highly recommend reading “think and grow rich” as it has helped millions in achieving fortune.
I wish everything of the best for you who believe in better world for us and our children.
“I Appreciate You”
