The History of Mastermind Groups

The Mastermind Group concept was made famous by Napoleon Hill in his 1928 work, The Law of Success, but the idea dates back to antiquity.

Most great leaders and achievers throughout the ages have consistently surrounded themselves with like-minded, trusted advisors who could help them improve their ideas and advance their performance.

The US Constitution and the University of Pennsylvania are two examples of what can happen when people “put their minds together“ for a common purpose in such a group.

“No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind” -Napoleon Hill

Napoleons Hill’s work was originally commissioned by Andrew Carnegie. It was based upon interviews of over 100 American millionaires over a twenty year period, among them self-made industrial giants, Henry Ford, J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison.
