Shaping Your Reality

Charles F Haanel is one of the early pioneers in the field of personal development.  Although he was born in 1866, many of the concepts presented in his book titled The Master Key System, apply to today’s personal development arena.  He focuses on a specific program designed to help you attain personal success.  Whether success means reaching an ideal body weight, or accumulating a specific amount of money or possessions, or being in a healthy relationship; Haanel provides a series of exercises that help you to change personal reality.  He proposes that the external world you experience is a reflection of your inner world, with every thought a cause and every condition an effect of thought. He further states that there is a great difference between simply thinking versus directing your thoughts in a conscious, systematic, constructive way.  Following is an exercise to help you gain control of your thoughts.  This is adapted from The Master Key System:

Find a comfortable place where you will not be interrupted.

Sit comfortably, but do not lounge.

Be perfectly still, but inhibit all thought.

At first, you may only be able to do this for a few moments, but continue doing the exercise until you can sit still for 15 minutes and control your thoughts.  This will teach your mind that you have control over all thoughts of care, worry, fear; and can entertain only the kind of thoughts you desire.
