The power of Harmony.

The ability of working together in harmony is something that could be said to be a useful trait in a winning or successful organisation. An organisation that has harmony is an organisation that can produce successful results on a consistent basis. When people work together in harmony more time is gained, as there will be less time needed to settle conflicts. The energy time and money used to settle conflicts can add up, it can be quite a waste of time and resources. So the idea of having greater harmony is a very attractive asset to have in any organisation. Ideally it can be found that in relationships such as marriage that have good harmony you can find that people would be able to life more fulfilling lives.

The Mastermind concept.

The idea of harmony was spoken of with relation to finding greater success in life. Napoleon Hill discovered in a 20 year research that harmony was a quality that was found in successful mastermind groups. A mastermind group is a group of about 6 people who meet often to discuss ideas and thoughts. It was said that many of the most successful industrialist at the turn of the twentieth century, were part of mastermind groups. These groups would have conferences and would be able to discuss problems that they had in their businesses, and members would be able to see solutions from another view-point.

The effectiveness of the mastermind idea was one of the reasons why it may have been included in the book “Law of Success” by Napoleon Hill, This book looked at 16 things that successful people had in common. It was a research conducted on 500 self-made millionaires over a 20 year period. Many people who have found success in areas of their life have either consciously or unconsciously practiced the principles.

Benefits of showing gratitude.

The idea of showing gratitude and appreciation is something which could be said to be very useful in building strong unity between a group of people. It could be said that people who are appreciated could feel a greater feeling of self-worth. The idea of self-worth is something that should not be underestimated. Self-worth and a sense of feeling good in life may be important things that motivate a person. Indeed it could be a reason why some wealthy people turn to philanthropy. But gratitude may indeed be one of the drivers why people will work harder in a company; being appreciated could be one of the most important factors in a person producing excellent good quality work on a consistent basis.


By genuinely showing true gratitude could be one of the greatest gifts that you could give to another person. This could be one of the things that can allow constant unity to be found within a group or organisation. What do you think? – Thoughts to make you wonder.
