The Science of Getting Rich, by Wallace D. Wattles (1860 -1911) discusses how you can use thought power to achieve financial success.
Many successful people including, The Secret’s author, Rhonda Byrne (Networth – $60 million) claim that the book inspired them on their Journey to Greatness.
I read the book, and I loved it because it made me believe I can get rich if I want to. I also learned many lessons about riches from the book, and something inside me urged me to share them with you.
Here are the main lessons I learned.
- God Wants You to Be Rich
Wattles believes God wants you to be wealthy because God can manifest ‘himself’ better through you when you have an endless authority over the means of life.
Furthermore, Wattles writes that God wants you to be rich because riches enable you to reach your full potential and help other individuals.
- Being Rich Enables You to Live a Complete Life
According to Wallace D. Wattles, riches enable you to live a complete life because money provides you what you need for you to reach the height of your talent and develop your soul.
You need particular things to develop the soul and the mind, and the modern society is organized in a way that you have to be rich to own these things.
- There is Nothing Wrong with Wanting to Be Rich
Some spiritual teachers claim that it’s evil to desire riches because money is the root of all evil. However, Wattles informs us that there is nothing wrong with desiring riches.
Riches free the body from struggle, and they enable you to afford healthy foods and good shelter. Furthermore, riches enable you to nourish the mind because they allow you to travel and buy books.
- A Large Percentage of Rich People are Average Individuals
Wattles claims that talent is not responsible for making individuals rich.
He conducted a study on rich people and realized that they were average individuals with fewer talents than most of us.
- Thought is a Powerful Force
Wattles teaches that your thoughts are powerful because they make The Creator/God act by bringing you opportunities that match them.
- Thankfulness Will Enable You to Attract Good Things
In the book, Wattles writes that many wonderful things will come to you when you are thankful because being grateful makes you more connected to God: The Source of All Wealth.
Besides this, being grateful enables you to attract good things because it makes you align with the creative forces of the universe.
Draw Nigh Unto God, and He Will Draw Nigh Unto You
7. You Can Succeed in Any Industry
Finally, Wattles teaches that you can succeed in any industry including an industry where you don’t have the right skills because you can build the necessary skills required for succeeding in that industry.
