INTRODUCTION

This book is pragmatical, not philosophical. It is a practical manual, not a treatise on theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money—for people who wish to get rich first and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, or the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics. It is intended for those 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.
I expect the reader to take my statements on faith just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison. By taking these statements on faith, he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich. The science in this book is an exact science, and failure is impossible. Nevertheless, for the benefit of those who wish to investigate philosophical theories and so secure a logical basis for faith, I will cite certain authorities.
The monistic theory of the universe—the theory that one substance appears to manifest itself as the many elements of the material world—is of Hindu origin and has been gradually winning its way into the thought of the Western world for two hundred years. It is the foundation of all the Oriental philosophies and has found a place in the thought of Descartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz, Schopenhauer, Hegel, and Emerson. The reader who would dig to the philosophical foundations is advised to read Hegel and Emerson for himself.
In writing this book I have used a plain style so that all might understand. The following plan of action has been thoroughly tested and bears the supreme test for any practical experiment: it works. If you wish to know how the conclusions were arrived at, read the writings of the authors mentioned above. If you wish to reap the fruits of their philosophies in actual practice, read this book and do exactly as it tells you to do.

Are you ready for it?

Challenge your thinking. Change your life.

In the spring of 1998, a man I'd never met sent me a book I'd never heard of, written long ago by a man who's now been dead nearly 90 years. That little book changed my entire life. As I put into practice the principles you'll learn about in this book, the results were astonishing — and they began almost instantly and continue to this day.

Hello! I'm Rebecca Fine, and I am so pleased to introduce you to this exciting
forgotten classic!

When The Science of Getting Rich arrived in the mail that afternoon I immediately
ripped open the package, sat down, and read it with an open mind — mostly because
the title was just so intriguing. And even though I must admit I found some of the oldfashioned language and some of the ideas in the first part a bit confusing, there was something about it that compelled me to reread those little confusing bits two or three times until ... I got it!

Once I'd done that, I couldn't stop reading until I'd read the whole thing!

Everything changed.

Right away I began to put into practice what the book outlines ... and everything
began to change. "Coincidences" happened — happy ones that led to connections with
people ... that led to more connections ... that led to money beginning to flow toward me in increasingly larger amounts and from several sources, including new and unexpected ones.
 
And even though changing your habitual thinking is difficult and I'm still not as good at it as I intend to be, my businesses began to "click," my income doubled, then tripled, and continues to rise ... my cramped city apartment gave way to a spacious and peaceful waterfront home ... I've established rewarding new relationships with many generous, successful, wealthy people ... and opportunities to be, do, have, and give more continue to show up at my doorstep almost daily.

It's amazing — and wonderful!

Work with the law, go with the tide.

Until this book arrived, nothing I had ever read or heard before had explained to me
so clearly that there are universal laws at work regarding wealth and success and that
if we'll just work with those laws — go with the tide instead of trying to swim against
it (usually unknowingly) — the results we want will begin to come to us. That if we
will scientifically reproduce the causes of wealth, we will invariably reproduce the
results.

Now right off the bat, author Wallace D. Wattles says that instead of questioning how
these principles work, you'll need simply to accept them and begin to practice them.
So I did that, even though as I read I did find myself resisting from time to time and
thinking, "Well, I don't know if I can agree with that." But I'd already decided just to
accept each premise as if I thoroughly believed it.

Can you handle the challenge?

By the time I finished the book I understood why he had included that warning. You
see, some of what you'll read or hear will most likely challenge some of your previous
thinking. That seems to be the case for most people — and I think Mr. Wattles
designed it that way! But keep on, and you'll soon see how Mr. Wattles beautifully
builds each chapter on what he presents in the preceding ones. I think you'll find
yourself saying — as I and many others have — "Oh, now I see why he said that. Now
I see how it all fits together."
 
Become rightly rich.
I believe also that you'll find it absolutely refreshing to know that to get rich by the
method outlined here, it is essential that you embrace and practice what we all know
as the Golden Rule ... that the daily practice of gratitude is one of the conduits by
which your wealth will come to you ... and that by accomplishing your financial
dreams through this method, everyone with whom you come into contact will also
have more.
 
A far cry from the dog-eat-dog, claw your way to the top, anything for a buck
mentality so many believe to be the only way to wealth!
Pay close attention to the message of this book with an open mind. Get a free copy of
the entire printable version right here — and read it. Print it out and give it to your
friends.
 
Link to it on your own website if you like. Focus constantly on your own personal
vision and share that vision with other like-minded people who are doing the same.
You WILL see results!

You already have within you everything you need ...

... to turn your dreams into reality. You are a person of infinite worth and unique
possibility. Even if you don't think of yourself as a creative person, and even if you've
failed before, and even if you think you've tried everything, open your mind to this
book.

You've probably heard the saying, "When the student is ready, the teacher appears."
That has certainly held true for me and many, many others, and perhaps you're ready,
too — right now. If you're not yet where you want to be in terms of income and your
own personal success, the problem may not be WHAT you're doing so much as HOW
you're doing it. And that begins with how you THINK.

If you want to change your life, you may just need to change your mind!

CHAPTER 1 The Right To Be Rich

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.
No one can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he
has plenty of money, for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many
things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them
with. A person develops in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and society
is so organized that man must have money in order to become the possessor of things.
Therefore, the basis of all advancement must be the science of getting rich.
The object of all life is development, and everything that lives have an inalienable
right to all the development it is capable of attaining. A person’s right to life means
his right to have the free and unrestricted use of all the things which may be necessary
to his fullest mental, spiritual, and physical unfolding; or, in other words, his right to
be rich. In this book, I shall not speak of riches in a figurative way. To be really rich
does not mean to be satisfied or contented with a little.
No one ought to be satisfied with a little if he is capable of using and enjoying more.
The purpose of nature is the advancement and unfolding of life, and everyone should
have all that can contribute to the power, elegance, beauty, and richness of life. To be
content with less is sinful. 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.
Life has advanced so far and become so complex that even the most ordinary man or
woman requires a great amount of wealth in order to live in a manner that even
approaches completeness. Every person naturally wants to become all that they are
capable of becoming.
This desire to realize innate possibilities is inherent in human nature; we cannot help
wanting to be all that we can be. 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.
The person who does not desire to live more abundantly is abnormal, and so the
person who does not desire to have money enough to buy all he wants is abnormal.
There are three motives for which we live: We live for the body, we live for the mind,
and we live for the soul. No one of these is better or holier than the other; all are alike
desirable, and no one of the three — body, mind, or soul — can live fully if either of
the others is cut short of full life and expression. It is not right or noble to live only for
the soul and deny mind or body, and it is wrong to live for the intellect and deny body
or soul.
We are all acquainted with the loathsome consequences of living for the body and
denying both mind and soul, and we see that real life means the complete expression
of all that a person can give forth through body, mind, and soul.
Whatever he can say, no one can be really happy or satisfied unless his body is living
fully in its every function, and unless the same is true of his mind and his soul.

Wherever there is unexpressed possibility or function not performed, there is
unsatisfied desire. Desire is possibility seeking expression or function seeking
performance.
A person cannot live fully in body without good food, comfortable clothing, and
warm shelter, and without freedom from excessive toil. Rest and recreation are also
necessary to his physical life. One cannot live fully in mind without books and time to
study them, without opportunity for travel and observation, or without intellectual
companionship.
To live fully in mind a person must have intellectual recreations, and must surround
himself with all the objects of art and beauty he is capable of using and appreciating.
To live fully in soul, a person must have love, and love is denied fullest expression by
poverty. A person’s highest happiness is found in the bestowal of benefits on those he
loves; love finds its most natural and spontaneous expression in giving. The individual
who has nothing to give cannot fill his place as a spouse or parent, as a citizen, or as a
human being.
It is in the use of material things that a person finds full life for his body, develops his
mind, and unfolds his soul. It is therefore of supreme importance to each individual to
be rich. 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 should give your best
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.

CHAPTER 2 There Is A Science of Getting Rich

THERE IS A SCIENCE OF GETTING RICH,
and it is an exact science, like algebra
or arithmetic. There are certain laws that govern the process of acquiring riches, and
once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with
mathematical certainty.
The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing things in a certain
way, and those who do things in this certain way — whether on purpose or
accidentally — get rich, while those who do not do things in this certain way — no
matter how hard they work or how able they are — remain poor.
 It is natural laws that like causes always produce like effects, and, therefore, any man
or woman who learns to do things in this certain way will infallibly get rich. That the
above statement is true is shown by the following facts: Getting rich is not a matter of
 environment, for if it were, all the people in certain neighborhoods would become
wealthy.
The people of one city would all be rich, while those of other towns would all be poor,
or all the inhabitants of one state would roll in wealth, while those of an adjoining
state would be in poverty. But everywhere we see rich and poor living side-by-side, in
the same environment, and often engaged in the same vocations.
When two people are in the same locality and in the same business, and one gets rich
while the other remains poor, it shows that getting rich is not primarily a matter of environment. Some environments may be more favorable than others, but when two
people in the same business are in the same neighborhood and one gets rich while the
other fails, it indicates that getting rich is the result of doing things in a certain way.
And further, the ability to do things in this certain way is not due solely to the
possession of talent, for many people who have great talent remain poor, while others
who have very little talent get rich.
Studying the people who have gotten rich, we find that they are an average lot in all
respects, having no greater talents and abilities than other people have. It is evident
that they do not get rich because they possess talents and abilities that others do not
have, but because they happen to do things in a certain way.
Getting rich is not the result of saving, or thrift. Many very penurious people are poor,
while free spenders often get rich. Nor is getting rich due to doing things which others
fail to do, for two people in the same business often do almost exactly the same
things, and one gets rich while the other remains poor or becomes bankrupt.
From all these things, we must come to the conclusion that getting rich is the result of
doing things in a certain way. If getting rich is the result of doing things in a certain
way, and if like causes always produce like effects, then any man or woman who can
do things in that way can become rich, and the whole matter is brought within the
domain of exact science.
 The question arises here as to whether this certain way may not be so difficult that
only a few may follow it. As we have seen, this cannot be true (as far as natural ability
is concerned). Talented people get rich, and blockheads get rich; intellectually
brilliant people get rich, and very stupid people get rich; physically strong people get
rich, and weak and sickly people get rich.
Some degree of ability to think and understand is, of course, essential, but insofar as
natural ability is concerned, any man or woman who has sense enough to read and
understand these words can certainly get rich. Also, we have seen that it is not a
matter of environment. Yes, location counts for something. One would not go to the
heart of the Sahara and expect to do successful business.
Getting rich involves the necessity of dealing with people and of being where there
are people to deal with, and if these people are inclined to deal in the way you want to
deal, so much the better. But that is about as far as environment goes. If anybody else
in your town can get rich, so can you, and if anybody else in your state can get rich, so
can you. Again, it is not a matter of choosing some particular business or profession.
People get rich in every business and in every profession, while their next-door
neighbours in the very same vocation remain in poverty.
It is true that you will do best in a business you like and which is congenial to you.
And if you have certain talents that are well developed, you will do best in a business
that calls for the exercise of those talents. Also, you will do best in a business which is
suited to your locality: An ice cream parlor would do better in a warm climate than in
Greenland, and a salmon fishery will succeed better in the northwest than in Florida,
where there are no salmon. But, aside from these general limitations, getting rich is
not dependent upon your engaging in some particular business, but upon your learning
to do things in a certain way. If you are now in business and anybody else in your
locality is getting rich in the same business, while you are not getting rich, it is simply
because you are not doing things in the same way that the other person is doing them

No one is prevented from getting rich by lack of capital. True, as you get capital the
increase becomes more easy and rapid, but one who has capital is already rich and
does not need to consider how to become so. No matter how poor you may be, if you
begin to do things in the certain way you will begin to get rich and you will begin to
have capital. The getting of capital is a part of the process of getting rich and it is a
part of the result that invariably follows the doing of things in the certain way. You
may be the poorest person on the continent and be deeply in debt.
You may not have friends, influences, or resources, but if you begin to do things in
this way, you must infallibly begin to get rich, for like causes must produce like
effects. If you have no capital, you can get capital. If you are in the wrong business,
you can get into the right business. If you are in the wrong location, you can go to the
right location. And you can do so by beginning in your present business and in your
present location to do things in the certain way that always causes success. You must
begin to live in harmony with the laws governing the universe.
