Andrew Carnegie attributed his entire resources to the capacity he accumulated through this Mastermind.
Here is the summary of how Andrew Carnegie would open each of his mastermind group sessions:
“I RELEASE myself to the mastermind because I am strong when I have others to help me.
I BELIEVE the combined intelligence of the mastermind creates wisdom far beyond my own.
I UNDERSTAND that I will more easily create positive results in my life when I am open to looking at myself my problems and opportunities from another’s point of view.
I DECIDE to release my desire totally in trust to the mastermind and I am open to accepting new possibilities.
I FORGIVE myself for mistakes I have made I also forgive others who have hurt me in the past so I can move into the future with a clean slate.
I ASK the mastermind to hear what I really want my goals my dreams and my desires and I hear my mastermind partners supporting me in my fulfillment.
I ACCEPT. I know, relax and accept believing that the working power of the mastermind will respond to my every need.”
