The Master Key System

Right now I’m listening to a classic book… The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel.

This book was written way back in 1912 but it’s amazingly relevant even today. A more well-known personal development classic, Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill, was inspired by this powerful book.

Originally, The Master Key System was offered as a 24 week correspondence course. Today, many modern self-development, motivational and success programs have their foundation in the teachings of Haanel’s course.

What Haanel is able to forcefully convey is the idea that everything you are and have today is the product of your thoughts up until that point. Your happiness or hatred, poverty or abundance can be attributed totally to you.

He sights many philosophical teachings and also many practical examples to prove his point.

Going further, Haanel shows that anyone can change their circumstances, if they are willing to chance the way they think. Yes, the change won’t come overnight but it will come. It will take a while to undo years of wrong thinking, but if you have the desire and are persistent, then the change will come.

Not happy with your relationships, with your health, your figure, your financial situation? You can do something about it!

In fact, you’re the ONLY person that can do anything about it.

That’s a beautiful thing; to know that you and I have total control of our destiny.

If you’re willing to give then you will get back what you give out, and more. As you sow, so shall you reap.

Focus your thoughts on good things and on positives. For example, there’s a big difference to thinking “let’s promote peace” instead of thinking “let’s stop war”. Both have the same ideal but focus on two different things.

Mother Teresa understood this principle well. She said; “I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”

If you’re not happy with the way things are going in your life, or finding it hard to make some changes you need to make, or you just want to take yourself to the next level, I encourage you to grab yourself a copy of The Master Key System.
