MKE – What is a Master Key?

minutes remaining

So, what is a Master Key? What about a Master Key System? Why do we need to have a Master Key Experience, and what does that even mean? 


According to my computer’s definition, here’s an answer to what is a Master Key: 

Master keying refers to a mechanical locking system used throughout a building whereby one key can access multiple locks. This system, also known as a master key system (in reference to the master key which accesses all locks), is used to provide or limit access to different locked areas within a building or complex.

Well, that sounds useful. One key to open all the locks. 


Then I looked up Master Key System in Wikipedia: 

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. The ideas it describes and explains come mostly from New Thought philosophy. 

Among the key points of Haanel’s system are what he refers to as the laws of concentration, attraction, and harmonious thinking and action. Unique to the Master Key System is a set of exercises that accompany each chapter, and which are systematically building upon each other — they are what makes the Master Key System a system.  Wikipedia 

I have been studying the Master Key System by Charles Haanel for over four years now, and I love how it has opened my mind to the possibility that I can control my outcomes by controlling my thoughts. As Haanel teaches us, thought is cause and conditions are effects. 


Then, what is a Master Key Experience? You can find out more HERE, but the essence of the Master Key Experience is that it is a way to study the Master Key System – I believe the best way. More than a book study, the Experience is built around the Master Key System, but adds in a Mastermind Alliance of like-minded people, Certified Guides to help and support you, webinars, exercises and supporting material.

This is life-changing for many people, those who jump in with both feet and commit to giving it their all. Part of the Experience is the opportunity to blog about the process. I say opportunity because blogging is a great way to get your thoughts in order, and to share with others. I am blogging right now. 

My friend Cindy wrote a blog about blogging. It changed my perspective on blogging. She talks about blogging with words, photos or videos. She says a blog can be much like a journal. I have a friend who blogs using poetry. When you join the Master Key Experience, there is even support to help you blog. 


Here’s a quote from Charles Haanel to give you an idea of the power of this material 

“The thoughts of success with which he has been impregnated are radiated to those around him, and they in turn help him onward and upward; he attracts to him new and successful associates, and this in turn changes his environment; so that by this simple exercise of thought, a man changes not only himself, but his environment, circumstances and conditions.

You will see, you must see, that we are at the dawn of a new day; that the possibilities are so wonderful, so fascinating, so limitless as to be almost bewildering… Any man with a knowledge of the possibilities contained in the Master Key has an inconceivable advantage over the multitude.”

Charles Haanel, The Master Key System, Forward

Remember that question, what is a Master Key? The answer, one key to open all the locks. And the Master Key System and Master Key Experience can open those locks which we have created in our minds, thereby opening the door to infinite possibilities. 

See for yourself. Get on the list for the next Master Key Experience. It only runs once a year, and it only costs $1 to check it out!
