The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles is an exceptional book. This book will help you to start thinking and acting in a certain way. The way that will lead you to an abundance of riches. I have extracted a few paragraphs from the book that will give you a brief insight into what the book is about. This is another book which you should add to your personal development library.
“There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty.”
“The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way, and those who do things in a certain way – whether on purpose or accidentally – get rich, while those who do not do things in this certain way – no matter how hard they work or how able they are – remain poor. It is a natural law that like causes always produce like effects, and, therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich.”
“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. a person can form things in his thought, and, by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created.”
“I have said that people get rich by doing things in a certain way, and in order to do so, people must become able to think in a certain way. A person’s way of doing things is the direct result of the way he thinks about things. To do things in the way you want to do them, you will have to acquire the ability to think the way you want to think.”
“When you rise from the competitive to the creative plane, you can scan your business transactions very strictly, and if you are selling any person anything which does not add more to his life than the thing he gives you in exchange, you can afford to stop it. You do not have to beat anybody in business. And if you are in a business which does not beat people, get out of it at once. Give everyone more in use value than you take from him in cash value. Then you are adding to the life of the world by every business transaction.”
“It is easy to understand that the nearer we live to the source of wealth, the more wealth we shall receive, and it is easy also to understand that the soul that is always grateful lives in closer touch with God than the one which never looks to him in thankful acknowledgement.”
“Never look at the visible supply. Look always at the limitless riches in formless substance, and KNOW that they are coming to you as fast as you can receive and use them. KNOW that there are countless millions of dollars’ worth of gold in the mountains of the earth, not yet brought forth to light. And know that if there were not, more would be created from thinking substance to supply your needs. Know that the money you need will come.”
