Let’s Talk About the Science of Getting Rich

People have been struggling with issues of poverty and wealth since money became a part of our culture, and The Science of Getting Rich was written by Wallace Wattles in the early 1900’s as an answer – to help people struggling to overcome money problems.

The Science of Getting Rich

The Science of Getting Rich

Wattles explains in The Science of Getting Rich: The Original Classic,
that ownership of money and property are always the result of doing things a certain way, whether on purpose or by accident, and that those who do not do things in the manner described will never be rich no matter how hard they work.

What Won’t Make You Rich

While every advantage you can acquire is a positive thing, this inspirational self-help book explains that getting rich isn’t  based on environment, talent, thriftiness, or even doing things better than your competition does them.

So, What Is The Science of Getting Rich?

Now that you have been given the information that  getting rich isn’t based on where you live, what you know how to do, how good you are with money, or being better at things than someone else is – I bet you’re ready to hear what this classic book says will make you rich, right?

Using Science and Your Brain to Attract Prosperity

In a manner very similar to Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich, which was published about 26 years after Wallace Wattle’s book, the science behind getting rich is using faith and the power of your mind to create and draw riches to you – using what is now commonly called the law of attraction to make yourself into a magnet for good things and prosperity.

This short review of The Science of Getting Rich gives you an idea of the book’s contents; though to fully understand the concepts explained by Wattles you should invest the time to read and study the book, put the concepts into play in your daily life, and then form your own opinions of the book’s value as a learning tool.

 

 

Are You Ready to Be Happy?

Life can be tough – it can kick the breath out of you and leave you feeling sick and tired of your present situation and ready for a change – and making a change begins with a state of readiness.

“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.”                     – Dalai Lama

If you want to make positive changes in your life, you have to be ready, and only you can decide when the time is right.

Are You Ready to Be Happy?

If you were to walk up to almost any unhappy person (if they were willing to talk, that is) and ask if they are ready to be happy, they would, of course, say yes, though they might follow the reply with a negative comment, such as – as if that could ever happen.

Very few people truly desire unhappiness, but people can get caught in cycles that recreate the same set of unhappy circumstances over and over, and it takes a lot to break out of one of those unhappy cycles.

What’s Holding You Back?

Feeling trapped, as if external forces are determining one’s happiness levels, is one thing that holds many people back, and blaming external forces gives an easy answer to a hard question, but not necessarily an accurate answer.

Self-improvement begins with being truly ready to take responsibility, to take control of your own life, and make things like low self-esteem, money problems, feeling lost and alone, exhaustion, weight problems, unhappy relationships, or lack of education a part of your past so you can live the life you want.

How to Be Happy With Your Life

When you are ready to move ahead with personal growth and make a change in how happy you are, there are several techniques you can try to see what works for you.

  • Get rid of the things that complicate and clutter your life.
  • Make time for peace and relaxation.
  • Take command of your situation and release negativity that comes from feeling powerless.
  • Don’ focus on blame, focus instead on what to do next to fix the situation.
  • Own your feelings. Somethings in life are just sad or infuriating, or hurtful – pretending everything is okay is fake and falseness holds you back in life.
  • Stop focusing on whether you are happy or not – focus instead on your goals, the steps you need to take to achieve them, and making sure you take those needed steps.

Taking care of your own needs and releasing past unhappiness is a form of self-compassion and positivity that can help you move ahead with personal growth.

Financial Planning Now to Avoid the Risk of Being Broke Later

It’s scary to think of not having enough money at any age, but even scarier to think of being broke after you’ve retired and can’t work anymore – but some planning now can give you a brighter future. (Sorry for stating the obvious.)

You have choices here – you can hire a financial advisor, you can do research and apply your best common sense, you can flip a coin to choose your retirement savings strategy (but you shouldn’t actually do that) – you can leave it in God’s hands and see how it works out – or you can make a plan.

Financial Planning for Your Future

According to NAPFA, the National Association for Personal Financial Advisors (which can help you find a CFP, or Certified Financial Planner), two out of five people surveyed rated themselves poorly in regards to understanding personal finance.

This lack of financial understanding leads people to retire later, to be underwater with mortgages, to have ZERO DOLLARS saved for retirement, and to have no kind of budget whatsoever.

Ignoring the need for financial planning does not make the problem go away, however. It only serves for stress and depression to build up in the individuals who have foregone this type of monetary exploration.

Financial Management

Whether you have a lot of money or you are struggling to get by, financial management is going to play a big role in your future. If you take control now, your future will be better.

(I know I kind of said that already, in different words, but really, it is so vital it cannot be over-stressed.)

How to Save Money for Long Term Investment

If you feel like you don’t have enough money to get by, saving money is, of course, the farthest thing from your mind.

The thing is, things like saving and contributing to causes, instills in your subconscious mind that there will always be more, and then, you start to find more and more that you can save, and you start to feel better about yourself.

And, as Anthony Robbins said, “If you won’t save a dime out of a dollar, you won’t save a million dollars when you have ten million.”
