In Part One of this series I Introduced The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles which was originally published in 1910 and more recently republished as an eBook by Vic Johnson, host of the Champions Club. This short, 78-page publication has many nuggets that are applicable today for anyone whose most pressing need is for money.
The Right To Be Rich
Wattles states that whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. Consider that a person develops in mind, body and soul by making use of things. Society is so organized that a person must have money to buy them. The person who owns all he wants for the living of all the life he is capable of living is rich; and no person who has not plenty of money can have all he wants.
Wattles continues, “Success in life is becoming what you want to be; you can become what you want to be only by making use of things; and you can have the free use of things only as you become rich enough to buy them. To understand The Science Of Getting Rich is therefore the most essential of all knowledge. There is nothing wrong in wanting to get rich. The desire for riches is really the desire for a richer, fuller, and more abundant life; and that desire is praiseworthy.”
Motives For Living
Wattles instructs that there are three motives for which we live; we live for the body, we live for the mind, we live for the soul. It is right to live fully within each and not deny the full expression of any of the three. For example, it would be wrong to live only for the intellect and deny body or soul.
Noble and Necessary
Wattles concludes this section by stating that it is perfectly right that you should desire to be rich; if you are a normal man or woman you cannot help doing so. It is perfectly right that you would give your attention to the Science of Getting Rich, for it is the noblest and most necessary of all studies. If you neglect this study, you are derelict in your duty to yourself, to God and humanity; for you can render to God and humanity no greater service than to make the most of yourself.
