Thank you Parsad for creating this message board. It is the equivalent of what is called the "Master Mind" group, in the book titled "Think and Grow Rich" by Napolean Hill.

 

p. 251

 

ORGANIZED effort is produced through the coordination of effort of two or more people, who work toward a DEFINITE end, in a spirit of harmony.

 

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."

P.S. Thank you Prem Watsa for recommending this book.

It's also the best book that I've ever read, it's influenced everything in my life. I cherish it every day and re-read it frequently.

Thought this was interesting.

 

I had read the Napolean Hill book... and this is an interesting insight into the ... colorful ... life of Napolean Hill and his many fabrications...

This is true for so many self help gurus - they are utter frauds in a sense that they live their own life much different than what they teach. What they teach makes sense and often isn’t really that complicated. But living it consistently is an entirely different matter, which typically the self help gurus don’t follow themselves.

 

Just look at pretty much any Tele evangelical or Robert Kiyosaki of “Rich Dad, Poor dads” fame. The core message of his book can be summarized in 2 pages, the rest is just repetitive and terribly written. So you can get inspiration from the message, but it probably should stop there and you need to find your own path and not follow the mostly fabricated stories and half truth, because often enough what they teach beyond the simple core message is mostly scam..

Stephen Covey's "7 Habits of Highly Effective People" and

Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People"

cover most of the bases effectively.

 

Most of the follow ons pale in comparison.

I agree. Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is timeless commonsense valuable human relations from my perspective .
