A Mastermind group is the one essential behind every successful person I know
There’s a seldom talked about principle behind the success of every winning athlete, every popular politician, every famous musician, every wealthy business person I know - and every one you can name. No, it’s not IQ, college GPA, the right family name or good looks.
This is the secret element - but it’s really no secret. Each of these people has a team of experts behind them - coaching, instructing and encouraging them. Back in 1935, in Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill wrote that a Mastermind group was the one essential behind every successful person he interviewed! And yet with that information having been read by most anyone serious about their success, very few people take the initiative to find or create their own Mastermind team. You may have goals, strategies and tactics for achieving a high level of success, but without a Mastermind group you’re polishing a Ferrari with no gas in the tank.
How would you like to join a team of hand-picked advisors committed to your personal success? What could you do with expert advice, wise counsel, and a network of successful people at your finger-tips?
The concept of surrounding ourselves with successful, thinkingBIG people is as old as the history of man. In ancient Greece, the great teachers of the day – Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates – all surrounded themselves with those who would challenge their own thinking and expand their arsenal of possibilities. Socrates is well-known for his belief that all growth takes place through “discourse,” the process of discussion. Unfortunately, our American model of “education” has ignored this principle as it consists largely of one-directional lecturing. But high achievers throughout history have shared insights in the small groups that fostered discourse and opened the doors to ever greater success.
As I’ve already mentioned, in 1937, in Napoleon Hill’s timeless classic Think and Grow Rich he talked about Andrew Carnegie’s “secret of success”. Carnegie had a Master Mind group in which he surrounded himself with the advice, counsel, and personal cooperation of other businessmen.
Hill’s “Master Mind” is defined as: “coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people for the attainment of a definite purpose.” Hill further adds, “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.”
Napoleon Hill knew, as millions of others have discovered as well, that a mastermind group will bring added energy to your most important efforts – in the form of new ideas and inspiration, previously unknown resources, and most importantly, a spiritual energy that goes far beyond our own intelligence and reasoning.
Rages to Riches Author Jim Rohn famously said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Just look around and you’ll see how that principle is confirmed. I have discovered that a mastermind group has unleashed my most important efforts – in the form of new ideas, inspiration, previously unknown resources, and most importantly, a spiritual energy that goes far beyond our own intelligence and reasoning.
