How to Get Rich, According to Wallace D. Wattles


The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles is widely regarded as one of the most well-known spiritual texts on how to manifest abundance. It’s a short book (my copy only has 61 pages), and this makes it a prime candidate for rereading, as it’s been proven that the way to rewrite our subconscious minds and really manifest abundance is to repeat an idea until old programming has been replaced with a new thought system. If you don’t want to buy the book, but you’re interested in the key concepts, because you’d like to attract wealth into your life, then here are seven key points for you to read, reread, and affirm.

1.It is your right and your duty to be rich. It is for the highest good of all that you acquire wealth. It is best for you, as well as everyone you love, that you get rich.


2.There is a science to becoming rich. Getting rich is a result of doing things a Certain way (Wattles capitalizes the “c” here, which is interesting). It has nothing to do with talent, ability, or upbringing. It has nothing to do with credentials, or geography. Anyone can get rich.


3.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 impressions his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created. In other words, you create your reality with your thoughts.


4.There is an abundance of opportunity and riches. The one Substance that manifests itself as the universe is constantly seeking fuller expression - more. There can be no lack, only expansion. You must see the underlying truth in all things: There is no such thing as poverty. There is only wealth.


5.In order to become rich, you need to hold the mental image of whatever with want and be absolutely certain that it is on its way. Your faith must be unquestioning, and you mustn’t speak in any other way than being sure that it will arrive. The picture of what you want must be clear and specific. Keep sight of it, holding its image in your mind as much as possible. In your leisure time, contemplate its image. Feel gratitude for having it already come to pass. The clearer the picture and the more you dwell upon it, the stronger your desire will be, and then it will manifest. The more steady and continuous your faith and purpose are, the more rapidly you will get rich.


6.Express gratitude for what you have. The more thankful you are, the more blessings you will receive. You can choose to fix your attention on the best and surround yourselves with the best, and this will help you to become the best.


7.There is no greater or more noble aim than becoming rich. The very best thing you can choose to do for the world is to become rich.

So, to sum it all up: reread this ideas in order to reprogram your subconscious, practice gratitude, and visualize your dream in the clearest, most detailed manner, in order to manifest the house, car, job, and money you want. According to Wattles, if you do this faithfully, there is no way that you won’t manifest abundance, as it is universal law.
