Definition of a Master Mind

The Master Mind consists of 2 or more people who work in perfect harmony for the attainment of a definite purpose.

1. It is the principle through which you may borrow and use the education, influence and the capital of other people in carrying out your own plans in life. It is the principle through which you can accomplish more in one year than you can accomplish in a lifetime, if you depended entirely on your own success.

2. When you form a true Master Mind alliance with people and work with them in true harmony, you can draw freely upon the spiritual forces within you in carrying out your plan and desires.

3. It can give you absolute protection in failure, provided that your purpose is beneficial to all that you influence.
