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.

7 Great Lessons From Byways to Blessedness By James Allen
Although Byways to Blessedness was written in 1904, the book is still useful today. In the book, James Allen provides advice that enables readers to live a wonderful life. He encourages readers to find happiness by avoiding negative states of mind as they lead to suffering. Also, he enlightens readers on the importance of difficulties and solitude.
Anyway, there are many lessons James Allen provides in the book, but here are the lessons I loved the most.
- How You Begin Your Day Matters
How you begin your day matters because it determines how your day will be. Your day will be filled with joy if you begin it wisely and joyfully, and you might have a bad day if you start it with a poor attitude.
- How to be Great
If you want to be great, you must sacrifice pride because it prevents you from doing the things that will make you great. Besides this, you must be willing to dedicate all your mind and energy on one thing, and you must avoid focusing on the outcome.
- The True Nature of Difficulty
According to James Allen, difficulty exists in the mind, and that’s why a difficult experience for a child might be easy for an adult.
He also teaches that difficulty fosters growth and development because it forces us to exercise our intelligence and awaken our hidden powers.
- The Negative Effects of Resentfulness
Resentfulness causes suffering because it prevents you from attaining true enlightenment. Moreover, it hardens your heart and prevents you from receiving the blessings meant for you.
Furthermore, it makes you suffer because it causes a troubled mind and makes you remember the bad things some people did to you.
- See No Evil And You’ll Free Yourself From Suffering and Sorrow
According to James Allen, you free yourself from suffering and sorrow when you stop judging people from your viewpoint of what’s right and wrong; when you realize that people have their personal viewpoints which make them do certain things, and that everybody thinks that whatever he or she is doing is necessary for them.
- The Secret to Joy
James Allen believes it’s possible to find abiding joy while here on earth because you are responsible for creating joy in your life. He believes you can find joy by being selfless because selfishness results in suffering. He also teaches that you can find joy by avoiding the attachment to things and loving everyone.
- The Importance of Solitude
Solitude is necessary for your spiritual life as sleep is necessary for your body. Solitude is so important that lacking it can result in a spiritual break down. It enables you to find the strength, wisdom, and knowledge needed to overcome life’s hardships. Moreover, it enables you to realize your true self and the hidden powers or possibilities within you.
8 Nuggets of Wisdom from the Four Agreements by Don Ruiz
In his book, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, Don Ruiz, provides wonderful pieces of advice that will help you find freedom. The book is enlightening, and all individuals in search of true happiness should read it.
Here are seven nuggets of wisdom I learned from the book.
- We Always Domesticate Our Children
According to Don Ruiz, children are domesticated the same way animals are domesticated. We domesticate them by punishing them when they go against our rules and rewarding them when they obey us. They then grow up with a certain belief and behavioral system that is forced upon them.
- Our Belief System Guides Our Thoughts And Actions
We all have a set of beliefs that guide our thoughts and actions. These beliefs determine whether we’ll be positive or negative thinkers, and where we’ll end up in life.
- Why Your Beliefs Have the Power to Guide You
Your beliefs have the power to guide you because you believe they are true. You completely trust them hence allowing them to determine your thoughts, decisions, and actions.
- Our Biggest Fear is to Be Authentic
We avoid showing the world our true nature because our biggest fear is to be ourselves. Little do we know that most people who achieve personal freedom and true success are authentic. They never fear expressing who they truly are.
- Be Careful With Your Word
You must be careful with your word because it influences other people’s actions and attitudes. Your friend can start loving herself passionately if you constantly tell her that she is a wonderful being. Conversely, the same friend can dislike herself if you constantly tell her that she’s an ugly loser.
- Don’t Take Things Personally
Taking things people say personally shows that you agree with what they say. Stop agreeing with everything people say about you because whatever people say comes from their personal viewpoint. It’s all about them, and not you.
Taking things personally will waste your time and energy because you’ll keep thinking why some people said some things about you, and how you’ll get back at them.
- Stop Making Assumptions
Most of us make assumptions that eventually hurt us. For instance, we love making assumptions about our friends, spouses, and relatives. We assume they know what hurts and what doesn’t hurt us, and we get offended when they do something that hurts us.
- Always Do Your Best
Do your best because by doing so you’ll avoid guilt and regret as you’ll love yourself, and you’ll be more fruitful. Don Ruiz defines doing your best as enjoying the action you take without expecting rewards. You, therefore, know you are doing your best when you are working while not thinking about payday.
