Since starting a Master Mind group, I’ve learned to appreciate how things work together to accelerate one’s career and life. For instance, I first learned about Master Mind groups last fall when I attended a Toastmasters (public speaking) meeting of which I’m a member. I joined Toastmasters because I want to promote myself as a speaker in order to tell more people about my writing career and perhaps to teach people about writing.

At the meeting, I listened to another member give a speech about the book by Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich.

I had heard of the book, but didn’t know much about it. The Toastmaster giving the speech was articulate, used visuals, and showed enthusiasm for what the book, written 80 years ago, had done for his life and career.

At the end of the speech, I wanted to read the book and start utilizing its concepts in my own life.

After reading that book, I began to think of starting a Master Mind group. I knew of none in my area and didn’t know how to find one. So I decided to form my own group.

A couple of people in my writing support group came to mind. They were interested once they heard what it was about, and the three of us put the group together.

That was a few years ago. Through the encouragement of the members of my Master Mind, I felt compelled to work on my goals as a freelance writer and set steps of progress in my life that put me miles ahead of where I would have been without the group.

Today I have 11 children’s books with my name on the cover.

A Master Mind group is a valuable way to accelerate your goals or career. Read Hill’s books (he has others) and join a Master Mind group—or form one of your own.
