7 Nuggets of Wisdom from Wallace Wattles’ Book: The Science of Getting Rich

Published

on

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 that 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.

  1. God Wants You to Be Rich

Wattles believes that 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.

  1. 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 the many possessions you need 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.

  1. 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 also enable you to afford healthy foods and good shelter. Furthermore, financial freedom enables you to nourish the mind because it allows you to travel and have time to buy and read books.

  1. A Large Percentage of Rich People are Average Individuals

Wattles claimed 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

Thank You for Reading.

If you have read the book you are free to add more lessons you learned from it.

    Those are all great thoughts about the possibility of becoming rich. Hoping that will work out for me. 🙂 And thanks for the reminder to be grateful! I forget, or I think I don’t have anything to be grateful that day, but I always do, if I just give myself a moment to think about it.

9 Key Take-Aways from Tony Robbin’s Book: Awaken the Giant Within

Published

on

Tony Robbins’ Awaken the Giant Within, is an inspirational book that makes you realize that you can achieve whatever you want. The book provides various guidelines that will enable you to take control of all aspects of your life including your emotions, finances, and relationships.

It’s one of the best personal development books, and reading it will make you set big goals and go for them. Here are a few lessons from the book that I would love to share with you.

1.Everyone is Unique

Tony Robbins believes that every single one of us came here to contribute something special because we all have unique gifts. These gifts lie within us, and we can awaken them if we want to. Besides this, he trusts that The Creator often provides us with opportunities that can help us exploit these gifts.

2. How to Create Long Lasting Change

Raise your standards – Pinpoint the things in your life that you will no longer accept, and identify what you want to become

Change your limiting beliefs – Eliminate your limiting beliefs and create an empowering belief system

Change your strategy – Adopt the best strategies that will guarantee results.

3.The Three Main Decisions that Affect your Destiny

  • The decisions about the things you concentrate on
  • The decisions concerning the things that matter to you.
  • The decisions concerning what to do to create the future you want

4. To Succeed, you Must Focus on the Long-Term

According to Tony Robbins, many people give up on their dreams because they focus on the short-term: they want to achieve overnight success. Little do they know that focusing on the long-term enables one to persevere hence increasing the chances of success.

Those who succeed take massive action today and expect their efforts to reap results after a long period.

5. You Attract Success By Modelling The Lives of Successful People

The surest way to achieve success is by doing what successful people did. You must, therefore, pinpoint a successful individual in your field and identify what makes him or her a success. Copy the beliefs, strategies, and behaviors you think made the person successful, and soon you will also succeed.

6.How to Change a Bad Habit and Adopt a New One

Most of us have given up changing bad habits because we often fall back to them no matter how hard we try to change.

The best way to change a bad habit, according to Tony Robbins, is to associate bad things with the poor habit and good things with a new one. For instance, if you are a smoker, associate your smoking habits with hazardous diseases such as tuberculosis, and think about how much money you will save and how healthy you’ll become if you quit smoking.

7. Your Brain Has The Answers to All Your Questions

Your brain has answers to all your questions, and for this reason, you must practice asking it questions. It might not provide an answer immediately, but with patience and persistence, it will eventually provide you the right answer.

In the book, Tony Robbins narrates a story of a man who managed to escape The Nazi Concentration Camps because he constantly asked himself how he would escape. After asking himself questions for a while, he finally realized that he could escape by hiding in rotten bodies that the Germans dumped in an open grave.

8. Learn to Use Your Emotions

Learn to make your emotions work for you. For this reason, never suppress or ignore your emotions. Instead, check what they are trying to tell you. According to Tony Robbins, both negative and positive emotions can help you know the actions you must take to reach your goals.

9A Different Method for Creating Long-Lasting Change

Make the need to change a ‘MUST,’ not a ‘should’ or a ‘could’, because you will commit to changing, if the need becomes a ‘MUST.’

Secondly, realize that you are responsible for making the change and things will not change if you don’t change.

Thirdly, believe you can bring the change you want.

6 Main Teachings from James Allen’s Book: THE PATH OF PROSPERITY

Published

on

In the book, The Path of Prosperity, James Allen focuses on enlightening readers that their inner world determines the conditions of their outer world. He also teaches the secret to success and happiness, why suffering exists and how to end it.

You must read the book if you are interested in attaining prosperity. Here are key teachings from the book.

  1. Suffering Leaves When You are Ready To Learn Its Lesson

You remain in suffering because you are never willing to learn its lessons and you don’t understand that suffering is the universe’s way of correcting you.  Suffering vanishes when you are eager to learn from it because by doing so, you gain higher wisdom that enables you to overcome it.

  1. You deserve all your hardships

A universal law is responsible for bringing you all your misfortunes and pains because you deserve them. You need your pains and sorrows so that you understand their purpose, and become wiser, and stronger. For this reason, you must never blame anyone for your hardships.

  1. Heaven exists in this world

Many people believe that they’ll only live a happy life in a place called heaven after they die. However, Allen teaches that you can also live a happy life in this world because happiness comes from within. He believes the best way to find happiness is to build your inner world by cultivating virtues such as faith, and generosity.

  1. Natural Disasters are a result of the thoughts that dominate a country

We cannot blame one individual for causing war because disasters such as famines, floods, and wars occur as a result of the collision of poorly-directed thought forces. As James Allen puts it, ‘national events are simply the working out of the psychic forces of a nation.’ Therefore, for a nation to experience peace and avoid national disasters, every citizen must be encouraged to think higher thoughts.

  1. How To Awaken Your Intuition

To awaken your intuition, you must practice relaxing your mind by constantly thinking peaceful thoughts. This practice will enable you to gain power over your thoughts and desires hence causing a feeling of calmness and strength within you. The feeling will be accompanied by the awakening of your intuitive abilities which will always guide you into the light

  1. The secret to happiness

Unhappiness arises from self-centeredness, and attachment to material things, and for this reason, the secret to happiness is selflessness, and the detachment from material things. You also find happiness when you help those in need and lose yourself in their sorrows
