The Master Key System

The Master Key System

by Charles F. Haanel [edited by Francis O’Neill]

Did you know, The Master Key System was the inspiration behind Napoleon Hill’s book – Think And Grow Rich? It was, and still is, that good.

And change your life…

This remarkable book, that you can download from this website, is an edited self-help, personal development work by Charles F. Haanel (1866-1949)

The Master Key | 200x96 imageThe Master Key System was first published in book form in 1916 but prior to that it was a 24-week correspondence course that Haanel began in 1912. It is for this reason that, in the book, I have kept in a reminder, with the twenty-four “Parts,” that they each also represent a week number too.

New Thought
and the Law of Attraction

This work provides a valuable reference source in the New Thought movement. It is one of the early 20th Century books in developing the use of thought, or creative visualisation, in context with the Law of Attraction.

It is, in other words, a wellspring for the concepts and technology for how our minds can affect the change we want in our lives, and dynamically so.

With this book, Haanel easily earns his place alongside other New Thought writers, such Wallace Wattles (The Science of Getting Rich, 1903), and Napoleon Hill (Think and Grow Rich, 1937) – who admitted he drew inspiration from this book.

Indeed, for my money, and to a large extent because it was originally set up as a course, Haanel takes his reader further and deeper into the esoterica of creative thought than other writers in this field.

You are meant to read it

In keeping with the Law of Attraction, and philosophy behind Haanel’s work, I suggest that if you have come by this book you were meant to come by it, and you are meant to read it.

Better still – you are meant to study it. Yes, to get the best from it I would encourage you to treat the content as was originally intended – as a study course.

Whichever way you decide to work through it, I trust it will provide you with real nourishment and indeed help you to open doorways into having a very successful and fulfilling life.


What people have said* about Charles F. Haanel’s, The Master Key System

…”The Master Key System is a brilliant presentation about life, the power of positive and creative thinking, and moreover, and possibly most importantly, that with training and discipline, ANYONE can control their circumstances and make their dreams come true.”

“This book is currently opening more doors for me that I didn’t know existed. Highly recommended from a friend who has also recommended it to a lot of other people, if you want to learn about how to empower yourself, read this. A chapter a week for 20 weeks or so is all it takes.”


“A very good book. Only thing I don’t like is waiting a week to go onto next chapter. But the method is to do the exercises and be competent, then go onto next chapter. It is a WOW. I felt an incredible shift just reading first chapter.”

J. Kaur

… “This is a masterpiece of insights and I will be reading and re-reading this book as it contains so many nuggets of inspiration and information.”

Carolyn F.

Sean C.

“It’s an incredible self-help and motivational book. Charles Haanel was a brilliant man and it’s truly a shame that his teachings are not better known in the personal development field. His teachings are timeless … Very highly recommended.”

Mike K.

“If you want to learn how to live your life, in harmony, prosperity and peace, this book can teach you how. It is not a quick read, but a series of short, but meaty lessons. Each lesson requires study, and there are questions to answer at the back. The text appears to be simple, and yet the teachings are very powerful. If you are willing to take time to study, understand, and practice the lessons in this book, your life will reflect the learning in many, many positive ways. I have been through the book three times, and will do it again. It is always time well spent.”

Dahlia F.

“I haven’t finished reading it yet but I’m glad I purchased it. I think its the best self help book Ive ever come across and I would recommend this over all other self help books. The information is so simple, intelligent, spiritual and the book is well written. I highly recommend this book if you are looking to improve your life.”


“I bought this book for the same purpose, to achieve a higher level of consciousness. Here again, this book must be read multiple times to get what the author, Charles F. Haanel is trying to teach the reader about controlling his life with his mind. This book is the compilation of 24 lessons with exercises that can make it possible for every human to lock into the universal mind. The author also explains that it only works with a positive mind set. Anyone who lives a life of negativity must therefore work very hard to change his outlook and develop a life of positive thinking … It is up to us what road do we want to take, the road to riches or poverty.”

Christine V.

“This is by far the best book I have read on spirituality, abundance, health. I have seen the changes in my life by re-learning the Truth.”


“This book… I don’t even know where to start. This book gives you the secret to living a happy and joyful life. Whether you believe everything in it, is your choice. But wow, this book is life changing. This book is said to inspire Bill Gates to drop out of Harvard and make Microsoft. That’s how powerful it is. It also inspired many other books like Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It will help you improve your thoughts, and become more aware of what your inner dialogue is saying throughout your life, and how you should never doubt yourself. Just please, give this book a read.”

“I got this Book because I’ve read The Secret, The power, The magic and writer of the book talked about this book. So I’m a True believer of Law of Attraction. Since I’ve read the secret my life has changed drastically to beautiful and wonderful life. So I decided to read this and wow this book gets you deeper and deeper inside your mind. The exercises leave me shocked. I feel this great energy after each exercise, it’s so weird but I feel so happy and wonderful after each exercise. My body feels like it’s floating right after I open my eyes. This book is my life. I got my brother into Law of Attraction and it changed his life into 100 times better.”

About the author

Charles F Haanel (May 22, 1866 – November 27, 1949) was a noted American New Thought author, philosopher and a businessman. He was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

It’s a story of a self-made man and entrepreneur. He began his working life as a lowly office boy for a company in St. Louis. Fifteen years later he took the bull by the horns and resigned from the company to begin his own business.

Now in his early thirties, he suddenly found himself president of a sugar and coffee plantation. This had been the result of a risky venture that involved convincing investors to part with their money and invest in the development of a plantation at Tehuantepee, New Mexico.

It was his big break and one that transpired to be a very successful. He made all his investors, and himself, very wealthy as an outcome.

This was really only the start – you can find out more by reading his book.
