Summary of The Science of Getting Rich
Summary of Wallace Wattles’ Teachings
The following is an edited excerpt from Chapter 17 of The Science of Getting Rich.
THERE is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
Wattle’s First Key to The Science of Getting Rich: Thinking in a Certain Way
People can form things in their thoughts, and by impressing their thoughts upon formless substance can cause the thing they think about to be created. Wattles describes this process as thinking in a certain way.
To do this, you must pass from the competitive to the creative mind. Otherwise you cannot be in harmony with the Formless Intelligence, which is always creative and never competitive in spirit.
Practice Gratitude. You can come into full harmony with the Formless Substance by entertaining a lively and sincere gratitude for the blessings it bestows upon you. Gratitude unifies your mind with the intelligence of Substance, so your thoughts are received by the Formless. You can remain on the creative plane only by uniting yourself with the Formless Intelligence through a deep and continuous feeling of gratitude.
Form a clear and definite mental image of the things you want to have, to do, or to become. You must hold this mental image in your thoughts, while being deeply grateful to the Supreme that all your desires are being granted. The person who wishes to get rich must spend his leisure hours in contemplating his Vision, and in earnest thanksgiving that the reality is being given to him. Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of frequent contemplation of the mental image, coupled with unwavering faith and devout gratitude. This is the process by which the impression is given to the Formless, and the creative forces set in motion.
Wattle’s Second Key to The Science of Getting Rich: Acting in a Certain Way
What you want will come to you through the ways of established trade and commerce. The creative energy works through the established channels of natural growth, and of the industrial and social order. All that is included in your mental image will surely be brought to the person who follows the instructions given above, and whose faith does not waver.
You must be active to receive what you desire when it comes to you, and this activity can only consist in more than filling your present place. You must keep in mind the Purpose to get rich through the realization of your mental image. And you must do all that can be done every day, taking care to do each act in a successful manner. Give to every person a use value in excess of the cash value he receives, so each transaction makes for more life. And so hold the Advancing Thought that the impression of increase will be communicated to all with whom you come in contact.
If you practice these instructions of thinking in a certain way and acting in a certain way, you will certainly get rich. And the riches you receive will be in exact proportion to:
• the definiteness of your vision,
• the fixity of your purpose,
• the steadiness of your faith,
• and the depth of your gratitude.
