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
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."
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
best-selling book of the same title which has sold millions of copies
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
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." ###
