20 Feb Master Mind Podcast | Napoleon Hill Lessons
Podcast Excerpt: Keep in mind the fact that there are only two known elements in the whole universe: energy and matter. It is a well-known fact that matter may be broken down into units of molecules, atoms, and electrons. These are units of matter which may be isolated, separated, and analyzed.
Likewise, there are units of energy. The human mind is a form of energy — a part of it being spiritual in nature. When the minds of two people are coordinated in a SPIRIT OF HARMONY, the spiritual units of energy of each mind form an affinity, which constitutes the “psychic” phase of the Master Mind.
The Master Mind principle, or rather the economic feature of it, was first called to my attention by Andrew Carnegie. Mr. Carnegie’s Master Mind group consisted of a staff of approximately fifty people, with whom he surrounded himself, for the DEFINITE PURPOSE of manufacturing and marketing steel. He attributed his entire fortune to the POWER he accumulated through this “Master Mind.”
Analyze the record of any person who has accumulated a great fortune, and many of those who have accumulated modest fortunes, and you will find that they have either consciously, or unconsciously, employed the “Master Mind” principle. Great power can be accumulated through no other principle.
ENERGY is Nature’s universal set of building blocks, out of which she constructs every material thing in the universe, including humankind, and every form of animal and vegetable life. Through a process which only Nature completely understands, she translates energy into matter. And Nature’s building blocks are available to us in the energy involved in THINKING!
Our brain may be compared to an electric battery. It absorbs energy from the ether, which permeates every atom of matter, and fills the entire universe. It is a well-known fact that a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery. It is also a well-known fact that an individual battery will provide energy in proportion to the number and capacity of the cells it contains.
The brain functions in a similar fashion. This accounts for the fact that some brains are more efficient than others, and leads to this following proposition: “a group of brains coordinated (or connected) in a spirit of harmony, will provide more thought-energy than a single brain, just as a group of electric batteries will provide more energy than a single battery.”
