Science of Getting Rich

by James & Miel on July 8, 2008 · 0 comments

I came across and interesting piece recently that I thought readers would be interested in. My friend found this article after looking further into the origins of The Secret’s foundation. This is a book written by Wallace Wattles in 1910 about the Science of Getting Rich.

I found it valuable to read through the entire book. Given the time period that it is written in, a great deal of the language is a bit old school. Some of the statements are certainly controversial so I’m certain to get some comments from those who don’t buy into this guy’s theory. At the same time I like to provide our readers with a wide range of theories. In my view it is best to take what works for you and leave the rest. If it doesn’t resonate with you then it likely won’t make a difference in your life, no matter what the content is.

For the purposes of making it easier on our readers, here is a selection of quotes from the book, so you are getting it right from the source. According to Wallace, here are a few tips on getting rich:

hold a clear and definite mental image of the things he wishes to have, to do, or to become; and he must hold this mental image in his thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the Supreme that all his desires are granted to him

give to every man a use value in excess of the cash value he receives, so that each transaction makes for more life

always creative and never competitive in spirit

entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings

deep and continuous feeling of gratitude

unwavering faith and devout gratitude

riches they receive will be in exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude

Overall I think it comes down to being consistently in alignment with your vision. It isn’t a matter of focusing out in the future though, but on how you are being in the present. As you can never be in the future. You are always in the now. It’s also all about what you put into it.
