The Master Key System

The Master Key System is a personal development book by Charles F. Haanel


(1866-1949) that was originally published as a 24-week correspondence
course in 1912, and then in book form in 1916.[1] The ideas it describes
and explains come mostly from New Thought philosophy. It was one of the
main sources of inspiration for Rhonda Byrne's film and book The Secret
(2006).
General Description
The Master Key System is a book which describes many New Thought beliefs
such as the Law of attraction,[2] creative visualization and man's unity
with God, and teaches the importance of truth, harmonious thinking and
the ability to concentrate.[3][4] Each of the 24 chapters contains an
introduction, followed by a sequentially numbered section which includes
an exercise towards the end, followed by a section with questions and
answers. At the very beginning of the book there is a Psychological Chart
which readers are encouraged to complete. It is a self-evaluation of the
reader's creative power, time efficiency, health, mental ability and
capacity to concentrate.[5] The book ends with a glossary and a general
question and answers section. Every chapter has a quotation at the end of
the numbered section. These come from eminent people such as Jonathan
Edwards, Lilian Whiting and Amos Bronson Alcott.
Exercises
Every chapter ends with an exercise which the reader is encouraged to
undertake every day for the following 4 7 days. Each is a meditation that

There are many today who claim The Master Key System is the greatest
personal-development book ever written.
It is simply one of the finest studies in personal power, metaphysics,
and prosperity consciousness that exists.
And The Master Key System was among the first books to use the phrase Law
of Attraction, which has become such a popular term today when referring
to the most powerful force in the universe.
Covering everything from how to create abundance and wealth to how to get
healthy, the author Charles F Haanel leaves no stone unturned.
With precision, he elucidates on each topic with logic and rigor that not
only leaves you feeling good, but also thinking good.
The book was banned by the Church in 1933 and has been hidden away for
decades.
Rumor has it that while he was attending Harvard University, Bill Gates
discovered and read The Master Key System. It was this book that inspired
the future founder of Microsoft to drop out of the University and pursue
his dream of "a computer on every desktop." You probably know the results...
It is Silicon Valley's secret that almost every entrepreneur who made a for
tune in recent years did so by studying the words Mr. Haanel penned around
100 years ago! Almost every millionaire and billionaire in the Valley read
The Master Key System by Charles F. Haanel. Since this book was no longer
in print until recently, copies of The Master Key System became a hot
commodity in the Valley.
The book was also one of the major inspirations behind the hit movie known
as "The Secret" and is now known to have inspired the writing of the world'
s most famous success book Think And Grow Rich.
