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.

The Top 5 Amazing Takeaways from Yasmin Mogahed’s book: RECLAIM YOUR HEART

Published

on

Yasmin Mogahed’s book, Reclaim Your Heart, was written to free your heart from slavery and enable you to have a positive perception towards hardships. The book also reveals the importance of placing our hope in God and advises us on how to react when we fall.

Besides this, the book is inspiring and also easy-to-read. I learned several things from the book, and I believe it made me wiser.

Here are 5 remarkable lessons I learned from Yasmin Mogahed’s book.

  1. Pain Warns Us That Something is Wrong

According to Yasmin, pain is a warning that something is wrong and we need to make changes in our lives. For example, heart-breaks tell us that we are too attached to a particular person, and we need to let go of him/her. They force us to make internal changes.

  1. The importance of Hardships

Hardships purify our souls and move us closer to God. They also remind us about the Greatness of God, and how small we are compared to his greatness. Difficulties awaken us from our recklessness and show us where we are heading to. For this reason, we must embrace hardships

  1. Life is a Test

‘The present world is an illusory pleasure: you are sure to be tested through your possessions and persons’ – Yasmin Mogahed, Reclaim Your Heart

We must realize that Life is a test that God uses to bring us closer to Him. Besides this, we must see life as a test because this perception enables us to realize that we can learn something from everything that happens to us. Lastly, we must strive to realize how we can pass the test of life.

  1. The Importance of Fasting

Yasmin teaches that fasting enables us to control our soul’s desires because it makes us learn to restrain our physical desires. By learning to avoid eating food while no one is watching, fasting also trains us to avoid indulging in immoral activities when people aren’t watching.

  1. The Definition of Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual awakening occurs when you realize that you had a wrong perception of the world. For this reason, awakening enables you to have a truer and beautiful life. It makes you fully aware and makes you realize that you can do and have anything you want. Lastly, when you awaken, nothing from your past will matter.

I believe these lessons will be of help to you on the journey of life. You are welcome to share in the comment box below the lesson you think is the most valuable.

6 Powerful Lessons From Bob Proctor’s Book: YOU WERE BORN RICH

Published

on

In the article, 16 Powerful and Impressive Quotes from Bob Proctor’s Book, I shared with you my favorite quotes from You were born rich. Today, I would love to share with you the top 6 remarkable lessons I learned from this marvelous book.

  1. Money is an Effect of Hard work

No one got rich through luck because every rich person worked extremely hard to accumulate riches.

Besides this, there is no shortcut to riches, and for this reason, all individuals who want to make big money must be ready to do it the hard way.

  1. The Best Way to Attract Money is Through the Prosperity Consciousness

Always imagine that you have the amount of money you wish to possess. This imagination makes your subconscious mind comfortable with the idea of money hence making it attract the amount of money you desire.

Moreover, imagining that you have the amount of money you desire makes the subconscious mind to formulate ways to bring you the money.

  1. No Amount of Reading Will Make You Financially Successful

Books won’t make you rich because they only provide you with knowledge which is only effective if you practically apply it on the journey to financial success.

  1. Let Go and Let God

Everything becomes possible to those who Let Go and Let God.

To Let Go and Let God means to stop worrying about your future, and trust that you will get everything you need to reach your financial goals. It means trusting that whatever must occur for you to reach your financial goals will happen.

  1. Desire Without Expectation is Useless

Desire is necessary for the achievement of your goals. However, it becomes wishful thinking if not accompanied by expectation.

A strong desire must be coupled with expectation because an expectant mindset prevents negative opinions and ideas from uprooting your goal/dream.

  1. Give Away What You Don’t Need And You Will Get What You Need

Give away the things you don’t need to create space for nature to give you what you need because nature always fills an empty space.

Remember, ‘The Law of Prosperity states that new things only come when you let go old things.’ – Bob Proctor

Therefore, if you want anything, for example, new clothes, just give out all the clothes you rarely wear, and you will soon find yourself with new clothes.

I believe the above lessons will help us attract a prosperous life. You are welcome to add more lessons you’ve learned from life/books that can help us attract prosperity.
