The Science of Getting Rich
ABOUT EIGHTEEN MONTHS AGO, a man Iâ€™d never met sent me a book Iâ€™d never heard of by a man
whoâ€™d been dead nearly 90 years.
That little book changed my entire life. As I put into practice the principles youâ€™ll learn about in
this book, the results were astonishing â€” and they began almost instantly and continue to this day.
When The Science of Getting Rich arrived in the mail that afternoon I immediately ripped open the
package, sat down, and read it with an open mind â€” mostly because the title was just so intriguing.
And even though I must admit I found some of the old-fashioned language and some of the ideas in the
first part a bit confusing, there was something about it that compelled me to reread those little confusing
bits two or three times until I got it!
Once I did that, I couldnâ€™t stop reading until Iâ€™d read the whole thing!
Right away I began to put into practice what the book outlines ... and everything began to change.
â€œCoincidences" happened â€” happy ones that led to connections with people ... that led to more connections
... that led to money beginning to flow toward me in increasingly larger amounts and from
several sources, including new and unexpected ones.
And even though changing your habitual thinking is difficult and Iâ€™m still not as good at it as I
intend to be, my businesses began to â€œclick,â€ my income doubled , then tripled, and continues to rise
... my cramped city apartment has given way to a spacious waterfront house ... Iâ€™ve established rewarding
new relationships with many generous, successful, wealthy people ... and opportunities to be, do,
have, and give more continue to show up at my doorstep almost daily.
Itâ€™s amazing â€” and wonderful.
Until this book arrived, nothing I had ever read or heard before had explained to me so clearly that
there are universal laws at work regarding wealth and success and that if weâ€™ll just work with those laws
â€” go with the tide instead of trying to swim against it (usually unknowingly) â€” the results we want
will begin to come to us. That if we will scientifically reproduce the causes of wealth, we will invariably
reproduce the results.
Now, right off the bat author Wallace D. Wattles says that instead of questioning how these principles
work, youâ€™ll need simply to accept them and begin to practice them. So I did that, even though as
I read I did find myself resisting from time to time and thinking, â€œWell, I donâ€™t know if I can agree with
that.â€ But Iâ€™d already decided just to accept (at least temporarily) each premise as if I did thoroughly
By the time I finished the book I understood why he had included that warning. You see, some of
what youâ€™ll read or hear will most likely challenge some of your previous thinking. That seems to be the
case for most people. But keep on, and youâ€™ll soon see how Mr. Wattles beautifully builds each chapter
on what he presents in the preceding ones. I think youâ€™ll find yourself saying â€” as I and many others
have â€” â€œOh, now I see why he said that. Now I see how it all fits together.â€
