I read everything with an open mind, often challenging myself by choosing books with an odd perspective or religious/spiritual views. These books do not reflect my personal feelings but are books that helped shape my perspective on life, love, and happiness.

This isn’t philosophy—it’s the pragmatic way to riches. I loved how Wallace talked about how becoming rich is a noble desire. Too many people start saying things like “money isn’t everything” when you claim you want to be rich. You need money to access things in your environment. Your potential can only be reached when you are in full possession of wealth.
This book gives a method for success that is just as certain as mathematical equations. Things come to you when you make them come to you. Some important takeaways from this great read include:
- It’s is a misconception that wealth is limited.
- The world is rich, and individuals are only poor because they do not act.
- Thoughts always find a way into reality.
First published in 1910, “The Science of Getting Rich” is Wallace D. Wattle’s work of the New Thought movement which describes the process by which one can focus one’s mental energies towards the attraction of financial success. As Wattles begins in his preface: “This book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.” Wallace D. Wattle’s “The Science of Getting Rich” is the work for which he is best remembered, a classic treatise on achieving financial success through the power of positive thinking.
