What Does It Mean To Be A Mastermind?

By now I'm sure you've seen and heard the word “mastermind” enough to begin questioning what or who is a mastermind.  Rest assured you're not alone in your thinking, but you won't be if you're a part of a mastermind group.

I was first introduced to the word through the book “Think and Grow Rich,” by Napoleon Hill. A book which the Mastermind Connect’s principles were founded upon.  Oddly enough it was a book ahead of its time, on the subject of self-improvement and spiritual awakening.

In summary, Mr. Hill, who at the time was a struggling writer, was commissioned by the very successful Andrew Carnegie, who in exchange for his mentorship allowed Mr. Hill to follow him for over 10 years, documenting, learning, connecting and writing the book we have today.

He was introduced to the wealthiest individuals in the world at the time, self-made millionaires such as  Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller and Thomas Edison, just to name a few.  It was during this time of mentorship that he was able to put together a concise manual of secrets to success.

There are 13 principles that one needs to apply in order to achieve a great level of wealth and success:

  1. Desire
  2. Faith
  3. Auto-suggestion
  4. Specialized Knowledge
  5. Imagination
  6. Organized Planning
  7. Decision
  8. Persistence
  9. Power of The Master Mind
  10. The Mystery of Sex Transmutation
  11. The Subconscious Mind
  12. The Brain
  13. The Sixth Sense 

The creation of a mastermind group is why you’re reading this article.  So let's get to it.  

What is a mastermind you ask? Mr. Hill describes it as “The coordination of knowledge and effort between two or more people who work towards a definite purpose in a 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”, also known as, the Mastermind.

How do I create or join a mastermind group?  A mastermind group can be formed with family, friends, co-workers or simply individuals that you meet at a common event.  As long as you have the same desire and vision, you can create your own.

What does it mean to be a mastermind?  To be a mastermind, is to be motivated, ambitious, hungry to achieve a new and greater level of success for yourself, your family, community and the future. Remember that you earn within a $1,000 range of the five individuals you are closest to, because we are the company we keep and the habits we follow.

Visualize being able to connect and build directly with people you admire, people who have forged a name for themselves in their respective fields, people that can help you create and achieve any goal or dream that you have.  That my friend is a mastermind.
