The aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," not only embraces the whole of a man's being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.
As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of a man springs from the hidden seeds of thought, and could not have appeared without them. This applies equally to those acts called "spontaneous" and "unpremeditated" as to those which are deliberately executed.
The first step is to adopt a Definite Purpose as an objective to be attained by
the alliance, choosing individual members whose education, experience and
influence are such as to make them of the greatest value in achieving that
There isn't any use in forming a Master Mind Alliance just to have someone to
chat with. It will soon play out if you don't have a strong motive behind it, and
it's up to you to plant that motive in the minds of the group members.
Everything man creates or acquires, begins in the form of DESIRE, desire is taken on the first lap of its journey, from the abstract to the concrete, into the workshop of the IMAGINATION, where PLANS for its transition are created and organized.
The formation of a DEFINITE, practical plan, or plans, through which this transformation may be made is a very important step. You will now be instructed how to build plans which will be practical.
