The concept of a MasterMind was first introduced by Napoleon Hill. Napoleon Hill (1883-1970), author of "Think and Grow Rich" was an American author, best known for the 25 year commission he received from Andrew Carnegie (1835 – 1919) who commissioned Napoleon Hill to interview over 500 millionaires.
During these interviews, he acquired informationand publish his findings about the similarities in traits, habits and a formula by which these people acquire wealth and success. The book "Think and Grow Rich" remains a popular reference today.
Napoleon Hill wrote about the mastermind group principle as:
The coordination of knowledge and effort of two or more people, who work toward a definite purpose, in the spirit of harmony."
No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind [the master mind]."
Many respond with: "I don't need anyone. I can do it myself. No one can really help me. My situation is different." It is only a matter of time before success lags and what was supposed to be easy becomes not so much.
To help you realize your full potential for success, Napoleon Hill offers you his thoughts and advice on success in the video below. Yes, the video is old and Napoleon is in his later years.
The principles he speaks on are timeless and you may find more benefit from watching this video than paying other "experts" for their "success programs".
I recommend that you set aside 10 minutes to consider his thoughts:
What you may need is a software tool that you can use to organize your thoughts. A mind-map is helpful to organize your thoughts and ideas and there are amazing software options which help you plan, brainstorm, communicate and present in an entirely new way.
I use TheBrain at the core of my business and believe you will love it just as a million others. Download TheBrain free here.
When you start your own mastermind group, use this video and the mind-map software to stayed inspired and focused.
Do not wait; the time will never be 'just right.' Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along." - Napoleon Hill
