The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles was written nearly 100 years ago and to this day, presents an excellent blueprint for getting rich. It doesn’t matter where you are from, how much education you have or whether you have money, if you can keep a clear vision of what you want and have the faith to see it through, wealth can be yours.
We live in an age of advanced technology and “How To” books which can be difficult to keep up with so it is surprising that his book has such a simple message. Wattles says that having the right thoughts, having faith and working in harmony with the Universe will produce the desired results…wealth.
Like many of our current wealthy people who want us to be rich, Wattles believed that no man can rise to his greatness or reach his full potential without having plenty of money. “The man who owns all he wants for the living of all the life he is capable of living is rich; and no man who has not plenty of money can have all he wants.”
How do we form our mental picture which is necessary for getting what we want? It involves more than setting goals although goals are very important. You must know what you want and be definite. “You can never get rich or start the creative power into action, by sending out uniformed longings and vague desires.”
Spend as much time as possible contemplating your picture. The more clear and definite you can make your picture the more you will focus on it and the stronger the desire will become. Visualize already having possession of what you want and the joy and excitement it will bring you. Remember that thought is the only power which can produce tangible riches. What you think about, you bring about.
There is one more component which is necessary for wealth, The Law Of Gratitude. The more we express gratitude when good things come to us and gratitude for the things we have, the more we will receive. The law of gratitude is a natural principle that is necessary to follow in order to get what you want. There are no riches without gratitude. Create your mental picture, take time for visualization, have faith and be grateful and riches are surely to follow.
