In the year 1912 the American businessman, Charles Francis Haanel, published “The Master Key System”, one of the finest studies in self-attainment and mental development ever. It became a tremendous success at the time, but seemingly vanished in the 1930s. It was only through Rhonda Byrne’s movie and book “The Secret” that it re-entered the consciousness of hundreds of thousands of people, and thus regained popularity – rightly so, as you are about to find out.
I first came across “The Master Key System” on the “The Secret” website, after having watched the movie in Cape Town, South Africa, in July 2006. I subsequently approached the producers of “The Secret”, asking them if they needed any help on the German translation and production, but it was all done and dusted. So I browsed around and found a mention of the Master Key System in the forum – we were now writing February 2007. What followed then was nothing short of amazing: I downloaded it, printed it, read it in one go and was absolutely taken! Charles Haanel’s writing was so profound, so deep, so concise, so meaningful and tremendously enlightening. After all those years at last a complete picture of Creation and my role in it took shape – what a revelation and what a celebration!
As I have done similar things before with certain software titles (ie. Opera, Sonork), I wondered if there was a German translation, so I started looking around. A mention was made that one would be published mid-2007, but that was just words, and I said to myself: “I’ll do one right here and now.” So I sat down and translated 2-3 parts a day. Every day for the next two weeks I translated 8-9 hours, and had the first rough translation ready middle of April 2007. Another two weeks later – after teaming up with a partner in Germany – the website went live on 1 May, and that very same evening, the first ebook was sold! As of writing in January 2011, over 48,000 German copies of our translation have been sold. We also created a range of high-quality and cutting-edge audio products, supporting the keen MKS student in the best possible way.
The partnership didn’t last long, though, giving life to my new website at www.MrMasterKey.com, where I am continuing my efforts on the German-speaking market, and where two more of Charles Haanel’s books are available in German, as well as a double-DVD of a talk of mine, and now also the Master Key Quintessence, a 46-min meditation CD with the key points from the MKS.
I’ve been living in Cape Town for 18 years now, and I’m longing to give something back, something that will help people live a life of abundance in health, wealth and happiness, so this website represents my English-language services around the Master Key System. In the long run I aim to make it the best support place and meeting-point, without taking anything away from other sites that are also promoting the MKS – the more the better for the future of Mankind!
So feel free to look around, learn about Charles Haanel and the MKS, download what I’ve made available, browse the MKS category articles I have posted, check when the next talk or presentation is taking place in your area, or when I’m on air or in print somewhere.
If you have suggestions, please feel free to contact me – I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Peace and Blessings,
