7 Tips For Financial Success From ‘The Science of Getting Rich’

In 1910 Wallace D Wattles wrote what was to become one of the classic books on wealth creation and financial success. ‘The Science of Getting Rich’ has inspired generations of entrepreneurs, business owners and free thinkers and was credited as the inspiration behind the Law of Attraction book and movie phenomenon ‘The Secret’. In it Wattles lays out a blueprint for achieving financial success and getting rich. A free copy of the full e-Book is available from our site URSuccess.Net

The 7 Steps to Financial Success

1. Cooperation – Universal energy is always creative and never competitive in spirit. Therefore to be successful we must give up competitiveness and work on helping one another. The concept of a self made millionaire is a false one. Very few get rich on their own without the support of a team.

2. Gratitude – A person may come into full harmony with Universal energy 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. A person can remain upon the creative plane only by uniting himself with the formless intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.

3. Mental Image – A person must form a clear and definite mental image of the things he or she wishes to have, to do, or to become, and must hold this mental image in thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the supreme that all his desires are granted. The person who wishes to get rich must spend his leisure hours in contemplating that vision, and in earnest thanksgiving that the wealth is being given to them. 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.

4. Take action – What is truly wanted will come through the ways of established trade business and commerce. Universal energy may provide the ideas but we must convert these ideas into reality.

5. In order to receive wealth and riches when it is ready to come, a person must be in action in a way that causes them to more than fill his present place. In other words in order to expand our financial success we must play a larger role and contribute more to the world.

6. Do your best everyday and all the time. A person must keep in mind the purpose to get rich through realization of their mental image and must do, every day all that can be done that day, taking care to do each act in a successful manner. Do what you love or at least love what you do.

7. Give value to receive value. A person must give to every other person a use value in excess of the money received, so that each transaction makes for more life, and they must hold the advancing thought so that the impression of increase will be communicated to all with whom they comes into contact. Millionaires are not made in one off transactions but true wealth is created by delighting your customers and clients time and time again.

In today’s turbulent times many are seeking answers. For some, the Law of Attraction appears inconsistent or unreliable. Since the ‘Secret’ many have been disappointed by lack of immediate results – dismissing the principle as new age hokum. From a personal perspective I remain steadfastly convinced that thinking negatively can only create bad feelings, despair and more negativity including ill health. If this is true, then logic would suggest that the opposite may also be true and that positive thinking, optimism and action may set in motion a positive spiral towards health, wealth and happiness. For a great number of successful people their achievements can be largely attributed to a combination of setting definite goals, visualising success and taking inspired action. If we believe that ‘success leaves clues’, then these components and the 7 steps above should form part of everyone’s success strategies.
