The Master Key System
By Charles Haanel
The Master Key is based
on absolute scientific truth and will unfold the possibilities
that lie dormant in the individual, and teach how they
may be brought into powerful action, to increase the person's
effective capacity, bringing added energy, discernment,
vigor and mental elasticity. The student who gains an
understanding of the mental laws which re unfolded will
come into the possession of an ability to secure results
hitherto undreamed of, and which has rewards hardly to
be expressed in words.
It explains the correct
use of both the receptive and active elements of the mental
nature, and instructs the student in the recognition of
opportunity; it strengthens the will and reasoning powers,
and teaches the cultivation and best uses of imagination.
It gives initiative, tenacity of purpose, wisdom of choice,
intelligent sympathy and a thorough enjoyment of life
on its higher planes.
The Master Key teaches
the use of Mind Power, true Mind Power, not any of the
substitutes and perversions; it has nothing to do with
Hypnotism, Magic or any of the more or less fascinating
deceptions by which many are led to think that something
can be had for nothing.
The Master Key cultivates
and develops the understanding which will enable you to
control the body and thereby the health. It improves and
strengthens the Memory. It develops Insight, the kind
of Insight which is so rare, the kind which is the distinguishing
characteristic of every successful business man, the kind
which enables men to see the possibilities as well as
the difficulties in every situation, the kind which enables
men to discern opportunity close at hand, for thousands
fail to see opportunities almost within their grasp while
they are industriously working with situations which under
no possibility can be made to realize any substantial
The Master Key develops
Mental Power which means that others instinctively recognize
that you are a person of force, of character - that they
want to do what you want them to do; it means that you
attract men and things to you; that you are what some
people call "lucky", that "things"
come your way' that you have come into an understanding
of the fundamental laws of Nature, and have put yourself
in harmony with them; that you are in tune with Infinite;
that you understand the law of attraction, the Natural
laws of growth, and the Psychological laws on which all
advantages in the social and business world rest.
Mental Power is creative
power, it gives you the ability to create for yourself;
it does not mean the ability to take something away from
some one else. Nature never does things that way. Nature
makes two blades for grass grow where one grew before,
and Mind Power enables men to do the same thing.
The Master Key develops
insight and sagacity increased independence, the ability
and disposition to be helpful' it destroys distrust, depression,
fear, melancholia, and every form of lack limitation and
weakness, including pain and disease; it awakens buried
talents, supplies initiative, force, energy, vitality
- it awakens an appreciation of the beautiful in Art,
Literature and Science.
