Success Hacks 101: Choosing The Right People

Updated on January 24, 2016

Have you ever been a part of a team where – for whatever reason – the group couldn’t get it together?

  • · Scheduling Issues
  • · Limited Chemistry
  • · Lack of Group Cooperation
  • · Different Agendas

If your answer is “no” then you will more than likely experience the aggravation associated with being a member of the wrong team as you more aggressively pursue your goals. It can even be said that your experience interacting with the wrong group of people is the prerequisite required – to properly maximize your success when surrounded by the right unit.

A group of leaders, who when working together create what Napoleon Hill would call a mastermind alliance: Two or more people who work in perfect harmony for the attainment of a definite purpose.

  • · Combined Experience
  • · Limited Liability
  • · Increased Productivity
  • · Peace & Purpose

The value of a mastermind alliance can be found in all walks of life. You see it in sports, corporate America, startups and professional networking… The list goes on and on. Bringing us to one indisputable realization.

That said, here are a few examples of how you can benefit from forging the right alliances:


Poor logistics are the downfall of most relationships. If you cannot find a mutually beneficial time, format or place to meet with your teammates you will not be positioned for success. Successful teams have an understanding of the importance of proximity on and offline.


If you have ever seen a sports team move in unison as if they could anticipate what their teammates were thinking, then you have seen the benefit of individuals buying into a system. Adhering to the same style as the people you work with can allow you to more effectively complete task in a shorter amount of time.


When you have people watching your front, back & each side – you may be surprised how easy it will be to focus on the task at hand.


When you work with a group that has agreed to a set of common goals you can relax and focus on your contribution without internal interference & with the support of your alliance


N. Hill said it best: [A mastermind alliance] may borrow and use the education, experience, influence, and the capital of other people [within the group].


The right people to help you succeed may not be directly associated with your team / company. By taking the time to nurture the right relationships - outside of the workplace - you can find extraordinary success by collaborating “outside of the box.”

Group Think

The most valuable benefit you will receive when surrounding yourself with the right people may go unnoticed: When people have strong personal or professional connections they tend to enhance each other’s ideas and even generate more effective solutions. Bringing life to the idiom:

Have you read Napoleon Hill 'Think & Grow Rich?'
