Discover a Sure-Fire Way to Accelerate your Progress at the Mastermind Open-House
Here is a free article for you to download Ten Ways to Improve Your Success
No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind.” Napoleon Hill, Author of Think and Grow Rich
Napoleon Hill author of Think and Grow Rich is credited with coining the term Master Mind. It was Hill inspired by Andrew Carnegie, studied the most successful people of his day, coined the term “mastermind” and encouraged entrepreneurs during another economically challenging time to join together to birth ideas to help them succeed. (Think and Grow. . .was first published in 1937!) A Master Mind group has the potential to help you reduce procrastination, get un-stuck, and move forward on goals and projects. Goals are often left undone when there is no one but you to be accountable to. You may put off the important priorities, while busily focusing instead on the urgent and unimportant. A Master Mind group is a source of external accountability when your internal accountability lets you down.
A Master Mind group requires you focus and set priorities for your time and energy - and helps you stick to them. Master Mind groups help you be fearless, confident, and engaged. You take action. You get more accomplished.
