The Science of Getting Rich
A Law of Attraction Training Manual

The Science of Getting Rich can change a life of poverty and failure to one of wealth and prosperity by successfully attracting abundance, utilizing the Law of Attraction.

Wallace Wattles, author of The Science of Getting Rich, was born in America in 1860, shortly before the civil war.

Having experienced much poverty in his earlier life, Wallace studied various religious beliefs and philosophies and claimed to have discovered the truth of the spiritual Law of Manifestation, and put them into practice in his own life.

He began to write books outlining these principles and practiced the technique of creative positive visualization; The Science of Getting Rich is one of the first writings Law of Attraction books of its kind.

Wallace saw himself as a successful writer, a personality of power, an advancing man, and he began to work toward the realization of this vision.

He turned his life from poverty and failure by successfully attracting abundance and prosperity and began to write books to share these principles of the laws of attraction with the world.

Nautilus Magazine published the articles of Wallace Wattles in almost every issue in the early 1900's.

The Science of Getting Rich is his best-known work and can be described as a down-to-earth and clear-cut, a practical Law of Attraction training manual.

In seventeen short, straight-to-the-point chapters, The Science of Getting Rich shows how to use this idea, how to overcome barriers to its application, and how work with very direct methods that awaken it in your life.

A mental and spiritual approach on how to become rich.

The Science of Getting Rich could be better described as a how to Law of Attraction guide.

Wallace Wattles opens The Science of Getting Rich with a Preface, which you often see quoted when searching for online secret law of attraction articles, this is the first paragraph;

"THIS book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached."

Here are some more Inspirational quotes from Wallace Wattles, and the Science of Getting Rich...

"You must know what you want, and be definite. You can never get rich, or start the creative power into action, by sending out unformed longings and vague desires."

"The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best; therefore it tends to become the best; it takes the form or character of the best, and will receive the best."

"Do not sit down and try to attract the thing you want to you; but begin to move toward the thing you want, and you will find it coming to meet you. Action and reaction are equal; and the person who steadily and purposefully moves forward with one thing in view becomes a centre toward which the thing he seeks is drawn with irresistible power."

"Thought is the creative power, or the impelling force which causes the creative power to act; thinking in a Certain Way will bring riches to you, but you must not rely upon thought alone, paying no attention to personal action. That is the rock upon which many otherwise scientific metaphysical thinkers meet shipwreck - the failure to connect thought with personal action."

"If you wear cheap clothes, eat cheap foods and surround yourself with cheap things to "save money" you will put yourself in the mental attitude of cheapness and inferiority. You will think of yourself in connection with cheap and inferior things, and so will see yourself as a cheap and inferior person. The cheap and inferior within you will be brought to the surface, and you will never do your best. You will be incapable of exerting your whole power, and by the law of reaction, cheap and inferior things will move toward you."

As you can see his English is dated, and needs careful reading.

Don't be afraid to use an older edition dictionary, as you will come across words that have changed in meaning over the last 90 years, which may not make sense in the context of the passage of the book.

The Science of Getting Rich was the inspiration for the film The Secret which was created by Rhonda Byrne, owner of Prime Time Productions.

The Science of Getting Rich can change a life of poverty and failure to one of wealth and prosperity by successfully attracting abundance, utilizing the Law of Attraction.

The book is nicely summarise by Mr Wattles and gives us an insight to the message within the pages.

The Science of Getting Rich Summary

THERE is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.

Man can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.

In order to do this, man must pass from the competitive to the creative mind; otherwise he cannot be in harmony with the Formless Intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.

A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.

Man may come into full harmony with the Formless Substance by entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestows upon him. Gratitude unifies the mind of man with the intelligence of Substance, so that man's thoughts are received by the Formless. Man can remain upon the creative plane only by uniting himself with the Formless Intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.

Man must form a clear and definite mental image of the things he wishes to have, to do, or to become; and he must hold this mental image in his thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the Supreme that all his desires are granted to him. The man who wishes to get rich must spend his leisure hours in contemplating his Vision, and in earnest thanksgiving that the reality is being given to him. Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of frequent contemplation of the mental image, coupled with unwavering faith and devout gratitude. This is the process by which the impression is given to the Formless, and the creative forces set in motion.

The creative energy works through the established channels of natural growth, and of the industrial and social order. All that is included in his mental image will surely be brought to the man who follows the instructions given above, and whose faith does not waver. What he wants will come to him through the ways of established trade and commerce.

In order to receive his own when it shall come to him, man must be active; and this activity can only consist in more than filling his present place. He must keep in mind the Purpose to get rich through the realization of his mental image. And he must do, every day, all that can be done that day, taking care to do each act in a successful manner. He must give to every man a use value in excess of the cash value he receives, so that each transaction makes for more life; and he must so hold the Advancing Thought that the impression of increase will be communicated to all with whom he comes in contact.

The men and women who practice the foregoing instructions will certainly get rich; and the riches they receive will be in exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude.
