The Secret
: First twenty minutes



by Neel Raman

In 1910, Wallace D. Wattles released his book called
The Science of Getting Rich which inspired the hot movie and book, The Secret.

What is the big deal about The Science of Getting Rich?

Wallace D. Wattles wrote, "The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain way. Those who do things in this certain way, whether on purpose or accidentally, get rich. 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. Therefore, anyone who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich."

Unsurprisingly, this book has been extensively referenced by some of the popular teachers in the personal development industry. It should come as no surprise that it is the same book that inspired Rhonda Byrne to produce the global phenomenon The Secret.

This is what Rhonda Byrne said on her introductory note to The Secret, "I can honestly say that, since that first night when a tattered printed manuscript found its way to me (thanks to one of my daughters), my life has never been the same. Once you read it [The Science of Getting Rich] for yourself, you will understand why".

Rhonda went on to produce the movie The Secret and the best-selling book of the same title which has sold millions of copies worldwide.

Here's an amazing statistic. If you take 100 people and follow them from the beginning of their working career and follow their progress for the average 40-year working career until the retirement age, this is what you will most likely find:

  1 person will be wealthy

  4 will be financially secure

  5 will be working because they have to, not because they want to

36 will be dead

54 will be broke — dependent on Government welfare or other means to survive.

What this means is that only 5% of people will be successful financially and 95% will be unsuccessful.

The wealthy people actually understand the Law of Attraction which is the premise of Wallace D. Wattles book, The Science of Getting Rich. Wealthy people recognize there is abundance around us and it is up to each one of us to attract that abundance into our lives.

So why is money important? According to one of the teachers from The Secret, "We need to make a game out of making money. There is so much good we can do with money. Without it, we are bound and shackled and our choices become limited."  ###
