The Power of Multiple
Adding Fuel to the
Fulfillment of Your Dreams
Capturing the power of multiple minds is far more
than just getting more heads involved in coming up with a solution.
It's about getting everyone's mind power working together toward the
same goals - preferably goals that benefit the entire group.
But when you do that, an interesting thing
happens. Buckminster Fuller, one of humanity's most
prolific geniuses talked about this phenomenon.
Think of bees. They all have the
same purpose - to collect nectar, build hives to live in
and and raise baby bees. Those bees could care less about
pollination. They just want to collect as much nectar as they
can and process it. However, the secondary effect -
pollination - is far bigger and more beneficial to the
entire surrounding community-at-large than what the bees cared
about, honey, beeswax, and baby bees.
When any group of people focus their minds on
the same outcome, a similar effect happens. An
unpredictable, but exponential secondary effect, occurs in
The capitalistic culture in the United States is an
example of the same effect. The majority of U.S. citizens want
to make money. If we're honest, most of us are all about wanting to
make as much money as we can.
The secondary effect of that has been that
the standard of living of the country, as a whole, has increased
dramatically over the last century. Over the last 50 years that
effect has rippled out into the world as the citizens in country after
country have focused their minds on "making money."
They, too, have raised the collective standard of
living in their part of the world. Like U.S. citizens, they all
just want to make money.
Nobody set out to improve the standard
of living for everyone on the planet. It just happened!
A similar effect occurs in companies, families
and organizations of any kind. When the majority of the group's
members have their minds focused on the same outcome.
The results are astounding at three levels
The result is a whole new understanding of win/win.
The 21st century version is win/win/win. The
individual wins, the group wins, and each member of the
The third level win, the secondary unplanned
effect, is the biggest win of all - the one that changes the world.
So many people are searching for their Purpose in
the world so that they can have a beneficial impact on others. It is
highly likely that they are already having a very beneficial impact on
others just by doing what they already do every day.
Wishing You the Best Outcome You Can Imagine!
