The Science of Being Rich: Unveiling the Timeless Wisdom of Wallace D. Wattles

In week 22A we learn about the science of being rich. In the realm of personal development and wealth creation, few works have had the enduring impact and resonance of Wallace D. Wattles’ “The Science of Getting Rich.”

Originally published in 1910, this groundbreaking book has stood the test of time, serving as a beacon of wisdom and inspiration for generations of seekers. More recently, the truth has come to light that Wattles’ teachings have significantly influenced the popular book and movie “The Secret,” shedding new light on the profound insights contained within his seminal work.

The essence of “The Science of Getting Rich.”

At its core, “The Science of Getting Rich” is not merely a manual for amassing material wealth; it is a treatise on the principles of abundance, success, and fulfillment. Wattles contends that wealth is not the result of luck or circumstance but the natural outcome of aligning oneself with the laws of the universe.

He introduces readers to the concept of the “Certain Way,” a systematic approach to achieving wealth and prosperity based on immutable laws.

The Universal Principles of Success

Central to Wattles’ philosophy is the belief that there is a science to getting rich—a set of universal principles that, when understood and applied, inevitably lead to success. These principles include:

The Power of Thought: Wattles emphasizes the creative power of thought in shaping our reality. He contends that our thoughts have the power to attract or repel wealth and abundance, and that by focusing our minds on prosperity, we can manifest our desires into reality.

The Law of Attraction: Similar to the teachings espoused in “The Secret,” Wattles emphasizes the importance of aligning our thoughts and emotions with our desires. By maintaining a clear mental image of what we want and imbuing it with positive emotion, we attract the resources and opportunities necessary to achieve our goals.

The Law of Gratitude: Wattles emphasizes the importance of gratitude as a catalyst for abundance. By expressing gratitude for what we already have, we open ourselves up to receiving more blessings from the universe.

The Power of Action: While thoughts and intentions are crucial, Wattles also emphasizes the importance of taking decisive action towards our goals. He argues that action is the bridge between the mental and physical realms, and that consistent, purposeful action is essential for realizing our dreams.

The Influence of Wattles on “The Secret”

In recent years, it has come to light that the principles espoused in “The Secret” are deeply rooted in the teachings of Wallace D. Wattles.

While “The Secret” brought these principles to a wider audience, it is important to recognize Wattles as the original source of this wisdom. His work serves as the foundation upon which subsequent teachings on the law of attraction and abundance have been built.

Embracing the Science of Being Rich

As we delve into the timeless wisdom of Wallace D. Wattles’ “The Science of Getting Rich,” we are reminded of the power we hold to create our own destiny. By aligning ourselves with the universal principles of abundance and success, we can unlock our full potential and manifest our deepest desires.

Let us embrace the science of being rich, knowing that wealth and prosperity are not elusive goals but natural outcomes of living in harmony with the laws of the universe.
