The intricate workings of the brain is one of those mysteries of science to me.
Our brains just sit there, placidly in our control stations, taking it all in, absorbing all the facts, figures, and data around us, and then dispersing the needed functions to the body. Many of us never think about how the brain is taking in absolutely everything.
Napoleon Hill talks about this “intricate machinery” in Chapter 13 of Think and Grow Rich, and how this machinery is used for growth and maintenance of the physical body.
I want to talk with you about the effects that a mastermind group can have on the intricate workings of the brain.
I just finished a conference call from our mastermind group, and walked away feeling amazed, as we discussed this chapter of Napoleon Hill’s book.
You know how when lightning is ready to strike, and it makes your hair stand on ends?
That’s what this mastermind was like! You can feel the charge coming closer and closer…and then it hits. That jolt of electricity that sends sparks, or shock waves, through your body. It has landed… that idea, that thought, the touch of a muse which you recognize.
You can’t help yourself but to become overwhelmed, over awed, and thrilled with the delight of the force that has just come upon you. An epiphany moment has come and you’re left shaking your head.
You ask yourself, “Why didn’t I see this sooner.”
You couldn’t because you needed that spark, those ideas from others to ignite the fire. Those synchronized thoughts begin churning and turning until they develop into a passion to dig deeper, think higher and to turn that spark into a full blown blaze.
The energy is there, a blaze begins raging, and you don’t know how to harness it.
You can feel a level of heat between you when you put your hand next to someone without touching them. There is a connecting power. The same is true when the engine of the brain fires off its spark between others when they are sharing ideas and expressing thoughts.
The host of this mastermind, Ken Klemm spoke of how he spends 98% of his time on personal development. Many of us were amazed at that amount of time. He proceeded to tell us that you have to get yourself in shape before you can begin to help others.
Some of the things that were discussed along the line of personal development were reading, mental cleansing, affirmations and a personal mission statement. Raising your mind to a higher level takes a lot of effort, and because of this we were given several options for reading material.

Dale Carnegie’s, How to Win Friends and Influence People
and also books by Norman Vincent Peale. One of my personal favorites by Peale,

Thank you to our host, Ken Klemm, and the Saturday Mastermind participants.
It was an exceptional conversation and left me awed by the intricate workings of the brain.
