Do you question proven science? It is well-proven that if a group of people begins with a certain amount of certain raw materials, processes those materials in a certain way into new things, takes those new things and assembles them in a certain way, the end result is a plasma television. We don’t question this because it’s obvious–the plasma TV is on the shelf at your local Costco.
The same basic process works for everything that we see in the material world from buildings to roads, cars to clothes, jewelry to swimming pools. All these things have come into being by people acting in certain ways. Agreed?
The accumulation of wealth is the same. If a person believes in a certain way and acts in a certain way, wealth is the inevitable outcome, an outcome that is scientifically assured.
This is the premise of Wallace D. Wattle’s book, The Science of Getting Rich. There is a ‘recipe’, a scientific method, for attaining wealth–getting rich. If you follow the recipe, if you use your mind in a certain way, and act in a certain way, you’ll get rich. If you don’t follow it, you might still get rich (emphasis on the might) but it will likely be quite by accident or the result of the unconscious application of wealth principles. (As an aside, rumor has it that this book was the impetus to Rhonda Byrnes’ The Secret, although I haven’t verified this.)
Over the next few days, I’m going to reproduce the book here on The Fast Lane, chapter by chapter, with comments and observations. I am being more than a little selfish here–this is for MY benefit, as a way for me to better see ‘the error of my ways’. Obviously, since I am not yet wealthy, I have not been doing or thinking in the correct way. Duh.
I hope that whoever reads this can benefit from it too, if only to provide a platform for discussion or maybe an awakening of desire or sense of possibility.
P.S. I’m back–sort of. Original thought has been elusive of late, but that too is a product of the mind, yes?
