Mastermind Principles

Your Readiness is Recognized by your Willingness

Think of “The Mastermind” as your Individual Achievement Coach.

“We are not human beings on a spiritual journey.
We are spiritual beings on a human journey.” ~Stephen Covey 

One of my greatest joys is to inspire and motivate others into their greatest potential.  Over the last 30 years, I’ve studied the ideas of some of the greatest Mastermind teachers of the last century, including Napoleon Hill, Émile Coué, Eric Butterworth, Jack Canfield, Florence Scovel Shinn, Stephen Covey, W. Clement Stone, Louise Hay, Jim Rohn, Penney Peirce, Jack Boland and more.

It was only after I began to apply Mastermind Principles in my life, that I quickly began to see results. It has been said that Your readiness for Success is recognizable to the Mastermind by your willingness to invite “the mastermind” into your experience.

 Think & Grow RichNapoleon Hill popularized the term “The Mastermind”
in his all time best-seller published in 1937:
Think and Grow Rich.

Thousands of people have demonstrated dramatic, positive changes in their lives, and have experienced happy, successful lives using Mastermind Principles.

“There is an old saying that man only dares use his words for three purposes: to “heal, to bless and to prosper. And, what man says of others will be said of him, what he wishes for another, he is wishing for himself.”
~Florence Scovel Shinn 

Mastermind Principles have been and are being taught directly and indirectly by many legendary leaders, authors, teachers, coaches.  Mastermind Principles are universal and can be used by anyone of any background, at any age, in any place.

Our Philosophy of Success
& Individual Achievement Rocks!
It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone,
even then, there's no guarantees
but your chances improve 100%
when you discover what you are good at
and then determine how to deliver "that" to the world.
THAT is why you should work with Jane Herron!
AND because . . .
YOU are so done playing SMALL
DONE hiding your LIGHT
It's time to wake up feeling inspired and go to bed feeling like
you have delivered your highest and best good.
Yes, you have been living with a lampshade on your head
foolishly trying to please others
which has made it impossible for YOU to shine your LIGHT.
You have been a people pleaser, wanting to be liked
... now you see that got you no where,
and it cost you big time
because now you are sooooo out of focus,
and so disconnected from yourself.
Some days it feels impossible to like yourself or manage/mother others.
Hmmm, am I trying to be their buddy or their boss?
Maybe you have begun to doubt your skillset
because you are constantly talked over, second-guessed, or find yourself in toxic environments that suggest you are less than.
Maybe you have been hanging with the wrong women.
Cream rises to the TOP
and if women aren’t hanging with other top leaders
or champions of women
it's hard to stretch, grow, build, or harness your power!
Maybe you have forgetten to give yourself credit.
Do you pat yourself on the back, openly celebrating your accomplishments and proudly discussing your success?
Is it difficult for you to acknowledge
'how great thou art'?
Does it feel too braggy, too confident or too bold?
To avoid stepping up, standing out and OWNING your power,
did you choose to instead take a LIFE DETOUR?
That darn TRICKSTER made that detour look so very very appealing,
and I guess you didn't get the memo reminding you that
ALL detours have a tangible or intangible COST attached to them:
That nice little life detour allowed you to play small and dim your light for a little longer because it made it easier for you to get along instead of standing out!
And detours are good because
you deal with fewer questions, fewer doubters, and fewer haters, right?
(ALL of those folks sit in the CHEAP SEATS
meaning THEY have done NOTHING more
than 'provide criticism' of which is a reflection of their fears of doing what you ARE wanting to DO)
And what sucks even more...
your still small voice did send YOU
several loud verbal 'warnings',
but you chose NOT to listen when it beaconed.
So today is the day that you are now thinking and feeling UGH
I dread facing the Time-Energy-Money that it is going to take
to get out of this DETOUR and get myself back ON COURSE.
UGH I really hate backing out of this mess
while those CHEAP SEAT PEOPLE are watching me ...
however it is time to regain lost ground.
And even with all of that inner regret and fear of the future,
YOU absolutely know
you cannot + will not do that detour for another minute,
another day, another week, another month, another quarter.
You have proven to yourself time and again
that living your life to please others does NOT work.
YOU have the ABILITY
to make better choices.
YOU created your circumstances by your past choices,
and You do NOT need more proof or more time to think things over
to reach better conclusions.
How do You get back ON course?
You need the truth.
The whole truth.
And nothing but the TRUTH.
This is where Transformational Leader Jane Herron come in.

to executives and emerging leaders around the world.
Named Who's Who of American Women,
Jane’s groundbreaking programs and speaking engagements
have been instrumental in teaching women the navigational skills
required to emerge as a high achieving leader!
CHANGE begins with CHOICE
Your VOICE carries POWER
Jane has been called
The Gutsy GURU
because she reminds YOU that
Gee, You Are You (g u r u)
and nobody does YOU quite like YOU".
She is GUTSY
because for the past 30+ years she has criss-crossed the country
as motivational speaker, writer, corporate trainer, executive coach
and member of National Speakers Association.
SHE has trained over 300,000 professionals in full day workshops in:
Sales, Self-Esteem, Leadership, and Powerful Communication Trainings, Productivity, Outdoor Team-Building/Ropes Courses.
You've already accomplished so much in your life.
On the outside, it looks like you've got it ALL together.
But, on the inside, you can sense of the fact that you're not living a life that truly FILLS you UP. You long for purpose and meaning.
As Brené Brown would say:
"You are lost in the Wilderness",
and you are on a "Quest for True Belonging"
Jane has been a student and advocate of Brené Brown's powerful work on daring greatly, vulnerability, self-compassion, how shame affects your courage and how important this work is to women's personal growth!
She KNOWS what it means to live with a lampshade on her head,
having to deal with the consequences
of staying lost in the wilderness too long,
and not shining her light for her whole life.
She is a RECOVERING people pleaser
a lamp shade wearer,
and she did not have a map in her pocket, a compass in her hand,
or a FULL commitment in her heart for years,
so she knows what it feels like to be LOST in the Wilderness.
She also knows how good it feels to SHINE her LIGHT
and to be a lighthouse for others who are lost in the storm.
ONE lighthouse principle she teaches:
**When the LIGHTHOUSE strikes its LIGHT,
it does not measure the size of the storm,
it does not judge the storm.
It does not say to itself:
'I' must understand where that storm is coming from
before 'I' choose to SHINE my LIGHT.

NO-it does not judge, measure or wait
because it knows its PURPOSE!
It has ONE purpose and that is to SHINE.
And that is also your purpose-to shine your light!

your feelings temporarily so she may affect your future permanently!
Jane is the one who is going to put
a MAP in your pocket,

This is your year to look at HOW got you here and WHEN you are going to step into being the true leader you know yourself to be ... inspiring and propelling women in your organization and on your team to take their leadership positions.
And here is a little coaching secret:
hiring an expensive coach to help you sort-sort-sort through
"WHAT do I want" and "HOW am I going to get there" is sort of dumb!
The average price of coaching packages typically ranges
between $200 to $750/mo
and if you want 1:1, I have seen the price up to $800/hr.
Are you in SHOCK?
I was
You should hire a coach only after you have done your homework
and you know what SKILLS you are shopping for!
You are shopping for the skills they can transfer to you.
YOU are the consumer!

YOU need to shop until you drop to find the coach
who has the years of experience that 'you need' to add to your toolbox!
YOU do not need to buy from the person who has NO skills,
but got your attention with a fancy website and some great marketing!
Make sure you find a coach that is a good fit
and has the training & experience to move you forward in your life.
Jane has priced her
Chart Your Course Leadership MasterClass
well below industry standards.
The money you invest with a coach should be well worth it. Consider what experience this person truely offers and ask yourself:
What do I want?
Remember THEY may have hired a really great marketing company to sell them, you absolutely have the right to interview them before you plop down $1000's of dollars.
Invest in yourself wisely!

One of Napoleon Hill’s principles was to learn how to use AUTO-SUGGESTIONS.

Dr. Émile Coué was a French doctor who first introduced conscious autosuggestions to America in 1923 through the use of the Coué Method  — His method was so simple that most American immediately discounted it, but Napoleon Hill believed the Coué Method had something to offer.
There were two simple statements that would / could clear the mind very quickly, the first:  
Every day, in every Way,
getting better, better, and better.
Time and space are considered in the every day in every way with a conscious understanding that ‘in every way’ means everything in your life that has to do with your financial, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual life. Everything!  Then there is no greater affirmation in the Universe than the I AM of the I AM as you affirm and confirm that you are getting better, better and better.
Dr. Coué used a string with 20 knots, he repeated this mantra quickly 20 times with no other thoughts in his mind  it was stated repeated upon rising and before sleep to train the unconscious mind to accept and to allow this truth.
The second statement was used to address any negatives in your life by repeating:
“Negative thoughts,
negative suggestions,
have NO influence over ME
at any level of mind.”


Napoleon Hill was just starting his research for Andrew Carnegie in 1923 prior to his first book published in 1928, and used he reportedly these two statements regularly to keep himself healthy, motivated, and free of doubt, worry and fear  . . . all of which Dr. Coué would say is the basis of all failure on a financial, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level of life.

People travel to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vastness of the oceans, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.
~St. Augustine
You never wander pass by yourself ever again wondering:
who am I? where do I belong? where am I going?

when the wonders of the Mastermind Principles become your
True North.
In 1933 Napoleon Hill became a presidential advisor to Franklin Delano Roosevelt who served as the 32nd President of the United States, from 1933 to 1945. Napoleon Hill was the one who inspired F.D.R. with the idea for his famous speech, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself” – which helped to halt the financial hysteria created by the great depression.
While on the advisoral staff for F.D.R., he devoted his spare time to writing and completing six books – among them the prominent Think and Grow Rich in 1937, and Outwitting the Devil  1938 which remained hidden for 75 years. It was  Dr. Hill who helped to inaugurate F.D.R.’s famous Fireside Chats and wrote much of the contents of same.  It was Dr. Hill whom created a Mastermind Alliance for the White House Staff, the Senate, the House of Representatives, all of the Radio + Newspapers, and even the Churches to promote his Positive Psychology to lift Americans out of the Great Depression.  This was the first time in the history of this country that everyone got behind the President’s great words, which happened to be written by Napoleon Hill!!
Many years later Napoleon Hill, living in Chicago, started teaching Positive Psychology principles at LaSalle University, an extention of the University of Chicago. LaSalle is where Jane did her doctorate work and starting writing Thanks and Grow Rich.c-o-a-c-h
17-Principles of SuccessBecome the master of your own universe, and do not let anyone else’s negative words, actions or deeds sway you from your purpose, goals and dreams.
Live your life to the fullest, and follow your passions and happiness.
Remember, when you let your truest light shine forth onto the world, it is then that you are on your Earthly Journey.
Watch how your life changes when you tune into your intuition, psychic senses, and the blessings that come to you from paying attention to your still small voice and/or your spiritual guidance.
By ”Listening and Obeying” to that Still Small Voice, you will change and improve your life.


Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People® was and continues to be a top-seller for the simple reason that when writing the book, Dr. Covey ignored current trends and pop psychology for . . . proven Mastermind Principles.
According to the Marriott School of Business at BYU and Cynthia Haller, Stephen’s oldest daughter, when Democrat Bill Clinton was running for President in 1992, someone asked him what he thought of Clinton in the midst of a group who were very critical of this well spoken candidate and Covey said, “I don’t want to criticize Clinton, because you never know if I’ll have a chance to influence him.  And IF I do get that chance, I don’t want to be  called a hypocrite if he ever needs my help.”
A few months later in 1993 [sixty years after Napoleon Hills help with F.D.R. in the White House]  Dr. Covey received an unexpected call from President Clinton:
“I just read the 7 Habits twice,” Clinton said. “I want to integrate these 7-Habits into my presidency.”
A few days later, Dr. Covey flew to Camp David to share his insights and principles with both President Bill and Hillary Clinton .
[President and First Lady from January 1993-January 2001].

Mastermind principles are based on an ancient premise that the combined energies of two or more like-minded persons is many, many times greater than the sum of the individual energies involved. Dr. Covey calls these combined energies, SYNERGY in his books and he likens this energy to an orchestra.  One individual musician can make beautiful music, but add the Maestro, other great musicians and their music, orchestra everything to flow in a like minded direction and now you have a beautiful symphony with layers and depth.
Mastermind principles have been accepted universally by psychologists, businessmen and women because:

Whaterver the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.”
~ Napoleon Hill

Oprah Winfrey is a great example of someone who has used the scientific methods of focusing the power of thought for the specific purpose of establishing a direct connection with the Mastermind. Without the benefit of a great education. Oprah has become the worlds greatest woman in broadcast–how could she have done this by herself?  The Mastermind was tapped into, she listened and obeyed the guidance given to her.
Another great example is Henry Ford who had 3 months of education.  He too tapped into the Mastermind, used the power of the Principles and became the world’s greatest automobile engineer.
Definiteness of Purpose is the starting point of all achievement.
KNOWING what you desire most, knowing what you really do want, fills you with a success consciousness.
Harmony is a prerequisite for the Mastermind to create the SYNERGY that Dr. Covey teaches. The power of the Mastermind is that harmonious like-minded individuals, whom also have a definiteness of purpose, can believe for you — and accept as true for you – things you may find difficult to conceive or believe for yourself.
So your own strong desires combined with the energies of those also having a definite purpose creates the synergy that protects you against failure.
The beauty of a Mastermind Group is that the participants raise the bar for each other through the synergy of the group.
The beauty of our Mastermind Journal is that it offers you 12 new months, 52 fresh weeks, 365 new days of unclaimed, uncharted territory … and the power of the Mastermind begins to work for you and with you whenever you are ready to listen and obey to the guidance delivered. Our Mastermind Journal has been designed with the Mastermind Principles in mind for you.  Our Tele-Rituals will teach you Mastermind Principles each month.
Law Of Success Mastermind Groups

As a part of our Mastermind Group  also known as The Laws of Success Group:

1. You may borrow and use the education, experience, influence, and the capitol of others

2. You can accomplish in one year more than you could accomplish without it in a lifetime

3. You can draw freely upon the spiritual forces within you

4. You can have absolute protection against failure if your purpose is beneficial to all whom you influence


A daily reading habit is one of the best ways to invest in yourself. All the stats show successful people have a lifelong habit of constantly educating themselves through reading and writing. Even very successful people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett who already have it made, still read/write every day because of the value of both.

You create your dream in the Mastermind Journal and then Chart your Course in the Planner. You read/write consistently as you plan-execute-review-revise who and what you are.
