“The Science of Getting Rich”by Wallace D. Wattles,
is the current book that I’m reading as I stated yesterday in my blog. In his book he makes the claim that we have the “Right to be Rich“, due to the fact that society and culture have brought out that need for things and enlightenment that will make our lives more full.
According to Wattles the object of life is Development and everything that lives has and inalienable right to all of the development that one is capable of attaining. To further expound on this he means that one right to life is manifested in “his right to have free and unrestricted use of all things which may be necessary his fullest mental, spiritual and physical unfoldment”. To put in better words according to him “To Be Rich“.
The is really nothing wrong with wanting to get rich. Our desire to be richer is pretty much an innate part of our lives, in that we all desire for a richer, fuller and more abundant life. I believe that in some ways he is fundamentally right about us all wanting to have full and abundant lives, the issue is how one goes about achieving that goal.
As you can see I posted a pic above with a lot of money, to some this is what a full life is about,
and again above I show a pic with food and then there is the pic down below this may represent abundant fun or joy
Man cannot live fully in body, mind and soul with out good food, comfortable clothing, warm shelter for the body. For the mind he needs books and things that help stimulate the mind and the means to travel and study them such as nature or art. Next we have soul which mean we all yearn for completeness with friendships and fellowship and love and the need to express the soul in the ability to give and share all that they have encountered and endured in life.
According to Wattles, “It is the use of material things that a man finds full life for his body, develops his mind and unfolds his soul.” It is therefore of supreme importance to him that he should be rich.
According to Wattles, it is perfectly right that you should desire to be rich, as human beings we can’t seem to help it, and with society pushing the notion of us having to keep up with the ” Jonese” it has almost become a mantra. He believes that it is perfectly right that you should give your best attention to the “The Science of Getting Rich” for it is the noblest and most necessary of all studies, (his words not mine).
In his book “The Science of Getting Rich” Wattles expresses that there is no greater service that you can render to God and humanity than to make the most out of yourself.
Well stay tuned this was just Chapter one, I still have 16 more chapters to read and go over as I finish reading this book. I want to see if I’m able to put to use some of his principles in my own Network Marketing, Home Based Business building and get better results.
So make it a Simply Simple Day!!
