Master Mind Alliance

The Mastermind Alliance
“for Success Beyond Measure”

What it would be like if you had support that would sky rocket your power so success is  not only possible it’s inevitable?
That’s the power of a Master Mind Group.


The idea for a Master Mind  (also spelled Mastermind) group became known with the 1937 book Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill (October 26, 1883 – November 8, 1970). In chapter ten of Think and Grow Rich (1960 edition), Hill talks about the “Power of the Master Mind.” Hill says,

“The ‘Master Mind’ may be defined as: “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.”[i]

Further, Hill says,

When two or more people coordinate in a spirit of harmony, and work toward a definite objective, they place themselves in position, through that alliance, to absorb power directly from the great universal storehouse of Infinite Intelligence. This is the greatest of all sources of power. It is the source to which the genius and every great leader turn (whether they may be conscious of the fact or not).[ii]

Today, the Master Mind Group is also known as:

·       A Creative Team

·       A Success Team

·       A Dream Team

Napoleon Hill says: (See You Tube Video HERE)[iii]
It is the principle through which you can accomplish in one year more than you could accomplish without it in a lifetime if you depended entirely upon your own efforts for success.  


Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) was an industrialist, steel magnate, and one of the richest men in the world. He wanted to share his “secrets for success” so he asked Napoleon Hill if he would devote twenty years of his life to researching and interviewing successful wealthy men who he had helped accumulate vast fortunes through the aid of his secret for attaining riches. The result was the book, Think & Grow Rich.   (This book is the highest selling self-help book ever written and has over fifteen million copies in print.)

A few names from the forty-nine listed in the book are: John D. Rockefeller, Thomas A. Edison, F. W. Woolworth, Henry Ford, William Wrigley Jr., George Eastman, John Wanamaker, James J. Hill, Wilbur Wright, William Jennings Bryan, George S. Parker, Charles M. Schwab and Woodrow Wilson. Of course, these men benefitted handsomely from their Master Mind group alliance, and by applying the principles outlined in the book Think and Grow RichNapoleon states that the first Master Mind Alliance was the Nazarene and his twelve disciples.


At its highest level, you can think of the “Master Mind” as a way to engage divine guidance. That is the miracle and magic of the Master Mind.  Also, in the process of drawing out the best of each other in a Master Mind group, the genius within each member of the group emerges naturally as a result of being a “conduit” of like minds working in tandem towards an objective. The experience of collaborating in a Master Mind group creates the circumstances whereby a special synergy is created. One and one equals three, three thousand, and is unlimited.   

Life is naturally creative, and as Master Mind group participants elevate themselves from an ego stance of “what’s in it for me” to focusing on helping each other succeed, they also draw out the best in each other as co-creators. This is creating at its best and everyone benefits beyond what they could have imagined or dreamed on their own. Synergy, is the unlimited energy created when the merging of like minds opens for the creation of a “third” mind which is referred to as the Master Mind and Infinite Intelligence.


Anyone who is interested in personal growth, prosperity, and wants to help others reach success levels faster and going beyond what they can by one’s self.  Following are a few of the benefits of belonging to a Mastermind Group:

      Accountability – This is the key element of  a Mastermind Group. If you are having a hard time getting yourself to doing what you want to do, a Mastermind Group can make a big difference because the group will “hold your feet to the fire” so to speak and you will be taking steps as you intended. Why? Because each week the members of the group declare their intentions of what he/she will do to progress towards a specific goal that week.  Also, seeing people in the group make progress each week, inspires everyone to do better and better. The most powerful skill to have is self-mastery (discipline) to say what you will do and then do what you say. This builds one of the greatest success habits you can have. If you can’t honor your word (intentions) then this group is not for you, especially if you always have excuses, show up late for everything and your word is not your honor.   

      The definition of “power,” is “strength over time.”  Weekly steps add
strength and build your power!


      Support and Encouragement – Feedback on your progress (or lack) also helps as members learn where they are strong and where they need to add strength to get better and better as the weeks progress. When someone doesn’t know what to do they get help to get “unstuck” and can go forward. This is the time when most people give up and lose their dream because they don’t know how to go forward, nor do they have help to get unstuck.  However, with your Master Mind Alliance, you don’t have to worry. You have the help and support needed to grow through any challenge and accomplish what you most desire to do to achieve to succeed.

      Achievement – Your achievement and prosperity comes in the weekly progression of steps taken towards accomplishing what you desire. It can be personal, a career goal, a creative goal (getting more fit, creating a business plan, writing a book, learning some skill to qualify for a higher position, etc.) Each person begins with the end in mind as to what they intend to accomplish. The journey begins with setting up a plan of action for taking steps, and then taking action accordingly. This is the “progressive realization of a worthwhile goal.”  


      Prosperity – Prosperity is a by-product of taking steps each week until the desired goal is reached.

      Personal Power Increased – The ability to take action builds each week as does confidence and self-mastery. Personal power is about self-mastery and who you are becoming by choice in the process of reaching a particular goal.  

     Inspiration – Sharing information, learning from others, seeing the progress of your team members is inspiration in action. 

      Knowledge and Information – Each week you learn from sharing knowledge shared by the group.   


      Ideas and Inspiration – Ideas, information and inspiration comes from brainstorming sessions with the “group mind” and breakthroughs that result. This is something that cannot be achieved on your own.


     Confirmation about Talents and Gifts – As you participate in sharing ideas, your own particular genius comes through in brainstorming ideas to assist members in your alliance. Oftentimes, people are not always consciously aware of their own abilities nor do they know how brilliant they are until there’s a need and they find themselves giving answers they didn’t know they knew. That is why in a Master Mind Alliance, the genius within each one is drawn forward in the desire to help a fellow member.  


Brainstorming Sessions – Great ideas and the talents of the members in a group emerge in brainstorming sessions. Breakthroughs and wealth-building answers are manifested.



A Mastermind Group is not therapy, or chit-chatting, or a bull sessions to complain about what’s not working. It’s purposeful and the focus is on achievement and success in whatever area you choose. 


If you are interested in accelerating your personal growth, and attaining success in any area of your life, a Mastermind Group may just be the answer for you.  This is especially helpful for “accountability,” because you are inspired and compelled to take action each week and report your progress to the group at the weekly (or bi-weekly) meetings.  The biggest reason people fail is they procrastinate week after week. A Mastermind group solves that problem because you are compelled to take action each week and it becomes a natural habit and eventually an inner drive.


A Mastermind Group consists of two or more like-minded people who desire to support each other to achieve their goals. That means making a commitment and having regular meetings.  The ideal size is five to eight people. The members must be committed, consistent and attend each meeting.  That is why selecting the right members  is crucial for the success of the group.

People who have similar interests:  entrepreneurs, small business owners, writers, etc. who want to partner with others for success and are committed to the group.  Each member brings some talent to the table that can be shared.

SIZE OF GROUP – A group of five to eight committed people is best.

MEETINGS – The group meets in person for one to two hours depending on size of group. Some groups meet by phone or SKYPE.  Ideally, the group meets weekly. However, it’s up to the group to decide on how often to meet, and when and where to meet.
