My six weeks on the road from the Marketer’s Cruise to Affiliate Summit to chilling out with Master Super-Guru Frank Kern’s disciples got me one good thing, in addition to the great contacts. It got me into a top mastermind group.
Over the course of the three days I was there with a group of top Internet marketers, I was able to find a couple of guys (Ron and Jack) that I seemed to connect with. The first guy said to the group, “Anyone that needs help with anything, let me know.”
I told him I needed MOTIVATION.
“Oh, you need an accountability partner?” he said.
I guess that is what I need, and I committed to get an e-bBook entitled: “How to Become Enlightened,” just launched on Click Bank.
So Ron, Jack, and I agreed to meet once a week for an hour or so on the phone to help each other with brainstorming and getting past the blocks that keep us stuck in our day jobs.
Wikipedia defines mastermind as: “A small club of like-minded advanced talents who meet periodically for mutual brainstorming/accountability sessions. First defined by Napoleon Hill in Think and Grow Rich.” From the book itself:
“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.”
No individual may have great power without availing himself of the “Master Mind.” In a preceding chapter, instructions were given for the creation of PLANS for the purpose of translating DESIRE into its monetary equivalent. If you carry out these instructions with PERSISTENCE and intelligence, and use discrimination in the selection of your “Master Mind” group, your objective will have been half-way reached, even before you begin to recognize it.
So you may better understand the “intangible” potentialities of power available to you, through a properly chosen “Master Mind” group, we will here explain the two characteristics of the Master Mind principle, one of which is economic in nature, and the other psychic. The economic feature is obvious. Economic advantages may be created by any person who surrounds himself with the advice, counsel, and personal cooperation of a group of men who are willing to lend him wholehearted aid, in a spirit of PERFECT HARMONY. This form of cooperative alliance has been the basis of nearly every great fortune. Your understanding of this great truth may definitely determine your financial status.
The psychic phase of the Master Mind principle is much more abstract, much more difficult to comprehend, because it has reference to the spiritual forces with which the human race, as a whole, is not well acquainted. You may catch a significant suggestion from this statement: “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.”
Yanik Silver is having a seminar called Underground this month in DC that costs $3,400 to attend. Wow! Who would pay that? Well, first of all, ALL of the people there are in mastermind groups with others in the group, small assemblies of 5-7 people with different points of view that share ideas, contacts, and resources. Yanik is also having a young entrepreneur’s event where he will have young Internet entrepreneurs under 25 all together, not so he can help them become business people, but so THEY can show how they have already EACH made over $1 million dollars in Internet marketing. Yes, it is possible.
