The Mastermind Approach and Henry Ford
The idea was first introduced to me when I read the book ‘Think And Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill many years ago.
Being a fellow Michigander – here’s something that will resonate with you from Napoleon Hill’s book – it’s about Henry Ford:
“It is a well known fact that Henry Ford began his business career under the handicap of poverty, illiteracy, and ignorance. It is an equally well known fact that, within the inconceivably short period of ten years, Mr. Ford mastered these three handicaps, and that within twenty-five years he made himself one of the richest men in America.
Connect with this fact, the additional knowledge that Mr. Ford’s most rapid strides became noticeable, from the time he became a personal friend of Thomas Edison, and you will begin to understand what the influence of one mind upon another can accomplish. Go a step farther, and consider the fact that Mr. Ford’s most outstanding achievements began from the time that he formed the acquaintances of Harvey Firestone, John Burroughs, and Luther Burbank, (each a man of great brain capacity), and you will have further evidence that POWER may be produced through friendly alliance of minds.”
“There is little if any doubt that Henry Ford is one of the best informed men in the business and industrial world. Analyze Mr. Ford’s intimate personal friends, some of whom have already been mentioned, and you will be prepared to understand the following statement:”
“Men take on the nature and the habits and the power of thought of those with whom they associate in a spirit of sympathy and harmony.”
“Henry Ford whipped poverty, illiteracy, and ignorance by allying himself with great minds, whose vibrations of thought he absorbed into his own mind. Through his association with Edison, Burbank, Burroughs, and Firestone, Mr. Ford added to his own brain power, the sum and substance of the intelligence, experience, and knowledge of these four men. Moreover, he appropriated, and made use of the Mastermind principle.”
