Unformatted text preview: of molecules, atoms, and electrons. There 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, over twenty-ﬁve years ago. Discovery of this
principle was responsible for the choice of my life’s work.
Mr. Carnegie’s Master Mind group consisted of a staff of approximately ﬁfty men,
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 man 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
ENERGY is Nature’s universal set of building blocks, out of which she constructs
every material thing in the universe, including man, and every form of animal and
vegetable life. Through a process which only Nature completely understands, she
translates energy into matter. Nature’s building blocks are available to man, in
the energy involved in THINKING! Man’s 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 signiﬁcant statement-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. 155 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH Through this metaphor it becomes immediately obvious that the Master Mind
principle holds the secret of the POWER wielded by men who surround themselves with other men of brains. There follows, now, another statement which
will lead still nearer to an understanding of the psychic phase of the Master Mind
principle: When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in
Harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance, becomes available
to every individual brain in the group.
It is a well known fact that Henry Ford began his business career under the handicap of poverty, illiteracy,...
