Hello there.

My name is John O’Melveny Woods.

The first thing I want to say is that years ago I had promised myself I would never – EVER – get involved with another self-help book, course or seminar. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that they didn’t help – in many cases they did – up to a point! I would feel pumped up and ready to take on the world… and then somehow a month or two later I wondered — what happened? I always felt there was a certain something missing… some missing knowledge or technique that when learned, would open me up to all the possibilities I intuitively knew I was capable of achieving.

Of course, there were always additional seminars offered that promised to ‘really’ show me how to do this or that. However, I finally reached the point where I tired of wasting my money, and more importantly, my time — only to be disappointed again when the next ‘big deal’ would fail to help me make any truly lasting positive changes in my life. Truth is… I had plain given up.

Until I went to visit a friend.

A Chance Discovery

While at my friend’s home in Las Vegas, he casually mentioned finding an old dusty book in an antique store that caught his attention. It had a letter in it from Napoleon Hill, the great self help guru. In it, he said that all of his success was due to a course he took when he was a young lad.

Okay, that got my attention. Where is this book, I asked? He spent about an hour searching through old dusty boxes in his garage and finally found it. I read it from cover to cover. It was like nothing I had ever read before.

Two things caught my attention: One, the book was written in 1909; and two, this book was not the course – it was an introduction to it. The author explained that the course was separate, and took twenty-four weeks to complete.

Do you have the actual course, I asked my friend? No, he replied. I thought it was in the book.

The Search for the Lost Course

My friend Carlo and I spent the next month searching high and low for this mysterious course. We found some copies in a couple of libraries (Harvard being one), and then Carlo found an original one in pristine condition from the early 1900’s. We had it optically scanned and proofed.

Finally, the course was now in a condition that could be replicated and distributed. I started reading through the course and it was unbelievable. But wait a moment; I am getting a little ahead of myself.

A Completely Different Approach

When the course was originally offered in the early 1900’s, the author sent out the lessons, one at a time, on a weekly basis for twenty-four weeks. The students read them once a day and then answered some questions at the end of the week. They would mail the answers back, along with enclosing a dime. When the answers were received, the next lesson went out.

Each of the lessons takes about 15 minutes to read, and is followed by a simple exercise.

That’s it.

Designed to Work

And yet, as simple as it sounds, it is profoundly different from any other self help course for many reasons:

· It is not an instant weekend or overnight fix

· It takes action – you are engaged in the course

· It takes effort – reading it, answering questions, exercises

· It takes time – 24 weeks

These very differences are a large part of the reason this course is so powerful. (The other part is the absolutely amazing information contained within it). The author understood how the human mind works and created The Master Key Course so that it would bring about positive and lasting change. We all know in our heart of hearts, for something to really work, it takes time. The problem is, we have been so conditioned for the ‘instant anything’, we’ve lost our gift for patience. We’ve been told over and over that we can instantly change our lives (even in one minute!) for the better by passively reading a book, listening to a CD or taking a weekend seminar.

No One Minute Fix

But as we have all learned, sometimes painfully, it isn’t really that easy. Think about it. We didn’t learn to speak in a weekend, nor do anything that was of any consequence overnight. I know. I have tried dozens of courses and read hundreds of books… and none of them made a lasting difference in my life. Believe me; it’s not like I didn’t try hard to do everything right. It just didn’t sink in.

The good news is: This Master Key Course works! Thousands of people, just like you, from all walks and social ladders of life, have taken The Master Key course and have consciously changed their lives, based on testimonials of their day.

It can be learned by anybody, regardless of where you are in life. It takes no special skills or education. You don’t need to be gifted, or already accomplished or completed any other self help course. You don’t have to believe, hope or wish for something to happen. In other words, it was designed to help anyone who took the course. Period.

The Real Deal

Napoleon Hill took these ideas and created his vast self help empire, which spawned the likes of Dale Carnegie and all the rest of the self help gurus with household names – even to this day. They are ALL based, in part, on the information contained within the Master Key Course. But there is a problem. These courses are only based on ‘bits and pieces’ of this course.

It is as if you are trying to bake a pie and you leave out two or three ingredients. Doesn’t much matter what your intentions are, you’re not going to get a very good pie.

The Missing Key

The Master Key Course is all of the ingredients and more. It is the ‘source code’ of all the self-help courses of the 20th century. The basis of those instant fixes that people are hawking to us through television and the Internet.

And we – you – finally have a chance to get this absolutely essential information directly from the original source. You’ll be able to learn, experience and understand how you can fundamentally use the hidden gifts you already have to make positive changes in your life. Just like Napoleon Hill and thousands of other people like you, who realized their dreams and were able to live the lives they desired.

Think and Grow Poor

All this time I thought there might be something wrong with me. Somehow I just wasn’t getting it. These gurus would tell me how easy it was, and yet my life didn’t change all that much. Through The Master Key I found out there is a very specific reason that most courses and books do very little for you. It turns out that believing, wishing, hoping, thinking and reading about how to change your life is doomed to fail. And the reason is startling, to say the least. All of these books and courses involve looking in the wrong place for true change to occur.

The Master Key Course is based on the knowledge of how we can access the fundamental inner workings of our minds and bodies. It shows us how to activate a powerful part within every human being that has been hidden from us for the past fifty years. It explains how a vast resource, that for some reason we’ve completely forgotten about, is at our disposal twenty-four hours a day – IF we know how to activate it (and, again, anyone can do it). It’s not taught in schools, nor in any other book or course. As a matter of fact, we’ve been taught the exact opposite of what this resource is and how to use it.

The Master Key Course gives us the missing key to unlocking the future that we can only now dream about.

It’s Up To You

This course is now being offered to you. You will receive it in the original way in which it was created. No additional opinions or thoughts. You get it right from the source. There are no gurus to idolize, nor a host of more expensive courses to attend if you ‘really want to get it.’ Only the pure knowledge exactly as it was imparted starting almost 100 years ago.

The Master Key Course is ONLY being delivered in a twenty-four part series. You will receive one part each week. You’ll need to read it and do the short exercises at least five times during that week. You will then answer a few questions at the end of the week (the answers are easy and contained in the course). You’ll send back the answers and receive the next week’s lesson.

The Cost

The cost has gone up a bit since 1909 – but for a limited time we are offering it to you for the introductory price of only $10.00 per week, which you send in weekly with the answers. This totals $240.00 for the total course, which is paid over the twenty-four weeks (just under six months time).

The Guarantee

You are not obligated to complete the course. If you find that it is not what you want, you may stop at any time and owe nothing more.

The Master Key Course speaks for itself. You will know right away if it makes sense for you.

Your Chance Encounter

If this seems like something you might want to do, then I invite you to take an action right now by signing up for the course.

Give yourself the chance to discover what your real potential as a human being is. As I mentioned earlier, I was done with all this self help stuff; jaded, even. But I was fortunate. I was still curious inside. It was only a chance encounter that showed me there is something real out there, and it has really made a lasting and positive difference in my life. You have this same opportunity before you right now.

I’m taking all the risk, because I believe this will change your life in a positive way too. As I promised earlier, it doesn’t cost you a cent to find out if this course is the right step for you. I will send you the initial materials for free in order for you to make up your mind.

Please take a moment and send an email directly to TheMasterKeyCourse@hotmail.com and put ‘YES’ in the subject line, and we will send them out to you right away by e-mail. If you want us to mail it, include your address in the email.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter. I hope you’ll agree that it has been worth it, and that the information was encouraging and interesting.

I look forward to sending you Part One of The Master Key Course.

P.S. Below is the original Napoleon Hill letter from the book for you to read.

April 21, 1919.
Mr. Charles F. Haanel,
St. Louis, Mo.

My dear Mr. Haanel:

You probably know, from the editorial in the January issue of the Golden Rule, copy of which my Secretary sent to you, that I began twenty-two years ago as a coal miner at a dollar a day.

I have just been retained by a ten million dollar corporation at a salary of $105,200.00 a year, for a portion of my time only, it having been agreed that I shall continue as editor of the Hill’s Golden Rule.

I believe in giving credit where it is due, therefore I believe I ought to inform you that my present success and the success which has followed my work as President of the Napoleon Hill Institute is due largely to the principles laid down in The Master-Key System.

You are doing a good work by helping people to realize that nothing is impossible of accomplishment which a man can create in his imagination. Surely my own experience proves this.

I shall cooperate with you in getting your course into the hands of the many who so greatly need your message.

Cordially and sincerely,

Napoleon Hill,
Editor, The Golden Rule
Chicago, Illinois
