from 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 person can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money. In order 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.

People develop in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and society is so organized that people must have money in order to become the possessor of things. Therefore, the basis of all human advancement must be the science of getting rich.

The object of all life is development. Everything that lives has 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—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 person ought to be satisfied with a little if he is capable of using and enjoying more. The purpose of nature is the advancement and development of life. Every individual should have all that can contribute to the power, elegance, beauty, and richness of life.

The person who owns all he wants for the living of all the life he is capable of living is rich. Nobody can have all he wants without plenty of money. 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 he is capable of becoming; this desire to realize innate possibilities is inherent in human nature. 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. Therefore, an understanding of the science of getting rich is 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 uncommon. And the individual who does not desire to have money enough to buy all he wants may not be living to his full potential.

There are three motives for which we live: we live for the body, the mind, and the soul. No one of these is better or holier than the other. Each is desirable, and neither body, mind, or soul can live fully if one 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. It is wrong to live for the intellect and deny body and soul.

We are all acquainted with the loathsome consequences of living for the body and denying both mind and soul. We see that real life means the complete expression of all that a person can give forth through body, mind, and soul. No person can be really happy or satisfied unless his body is living fully in every function and unless the same is true of his mind and his soul. Wherever there is an unexpressed possibility or an unperformed function, there is an unsatisfied desire. Desire is possibility seeking expression or function seeking performance.

A person cannot live fully in body without good food, comfortable clothing, warm shelter, and freedom from excessive toil. Rest and recreation are also necessary to his physical life. He 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 he 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, an individual must have love. And the expression of love is often frustrated by poverty.= An individual’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 person who has nothing to give cannot fill his place as a husband or father, 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 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 because 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 to humanity. You can render God and humanity no greater service than to make the most of yourself.

Revue de presse

"If you watched The Secret and wondered what the little book was that changed author Rhonda Byrne's life, this is it. Originally published in 1910, its time has come." (Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide magazine, Sep/Oct 2007)

"Perhaps the most important thing that separates Wattles' success strategy from many other systems is his emphasis on spiritual philosophy rather than self interest." (Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer, March 2009)

". . . Wattles identified financial success as the critical element, and first priority, in creating an environment in which one could grow in wealth, wisdom, and happiness. . . . the foundation of today's widespread success and prosperity movements." (Joint Forces Journal, July 2009)

“Wattles offers techniques for getting in tune with one’s deeper self and thus creating a channel of communication between oneself and universal energy. His is a gentle philosophy that excludes competition, cheating, and lording it over one’s fellows when one has made it, and encourages cooperation.” (Publisher’s Weekly) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Il faut arrêter avec ce type de bouquin, si tout le monde se met à consommer comme qu'il dit, il faut plus de 5 planètes pour répondre à nos besoins. J'ai rien appris et la science pour être riche comme le titre mentionné !

Don't be trapped by the title!
It just a bunch of words put together just to fill the pages. Nothing scientific in it! Nothing about how to get money!
Run away from this author and its books!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you buy ONE book about creating wealth and law of attraction make it this one!! 15 mai 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
At first when I got this book I was annoyed and a little disappointed. First at the brevity of the book. It is under 100 pages, almost like a pamphlet I thought. Then when I went to read it the language was sophisticated! (WHAT!?!haha) Not at all the type of language I'm accustomed to when reading books talking about self help principles (I generally feel self help books employ a very casual tone and language). Those two things right there meant that I left this book sitting on my nightstand while I tore through many other books surrounding wealth creation, and success.
Finally I ran out of those, and in the interim I reluctantly felt I should give this book one more try... I'm SO GLAD I DID! It turns out this book was written in 1910 (woulda helped me had I checked the copyright to begin with-explains the language anyway) OUT OF ALL THE LAW OF ATTRACTION AND SUCCESS BOOKS I'VE READ SO FAR, THIS BOOK IS THE BEST, AND THE ONLY ONE I CARRY EVERYWHERE AND REFER TO DAILY. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. Mind you this was written BEFORE the term "Law of Attraction" was thrown about with regularity. It's fabulous, and gives a concise and clear modus operandi to achieve your dream life, even if your present situation really sucks. Wallace Wattles reminds us that it is a Certain Way of thinking, and living, that produces with certainty the life we create. I will absolutely buy this for everyone I care about.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book! Beware of your prejudices. 27 janvier 2017
Par MARCO A SILVA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent book!
I have bought several copies to give to all my friends, and I hope they learn it by heart.
Here is what I recommend to make the most of it:
Beware of the prejudices you have accumulated throughout your life and your culture. For instance, the title of this book would have thrown me off, because I feared it would contradict my core beliefs as a Christian. It did not. In fact it not only reinforced them, and made certain things even more clear. Whether this or another preconceived idea you have, replace words used by the author by words that are more welcoming to you and the times we are living. Perhaps instead of “rich”, choose “life”, or instead of “original substance”, choose “God”. Remember this book was written more than 100 years ago.
One thing is certain, if you can ignore the references given in the preface, and are able to endure some of the uncommon language up to the chapter “How riches come to you”, you will most certainly get pumped from the chapter “Gratitude” onwards.
One last thing, the audible version is fantastic and makes it even more convenient to absorb the content more rapidly and deeper. It is profound, and it is taking me several times to absorb it properly.
By the way, even if you are not thinking or wanting to get rich, I believe it will benefit your life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best book I've read for success 27 août 2016
Par Sheldon Bowman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have read many books on the topic of success. None however can compare to the directness, clarity and sequential steps outlined in this book. Every good book calls to us in some way. The part that made most sense to me was working successfully at your current emdevors before being in the perfect business. It's settling. To make up your mind to work in the certain way now and then grow into your perfect business. I like how the author is also soo confident in this method. I enjoyed it. Thank you Mr Wattles.

A very dear friend suggested that I read this book. By focusing on chapters 4, 7, 11 and 14 and reading them every day for 30 days our mindset will be changed. He was right.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This isn't just a good book, it's a Great Book! 25 juillet 2013
Par Bill Arrott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
This book was written very early in the 20th century by a clear-thinking man who may well have studied under one of the clearest of metaphysical thinkers, Emma Curtis Hopkins, during her teaching years in Chicago. At any rate, Wattles' writing is simple, direct, profound--and right on! I love the way he begins--at the beginning. Why it's important for us to be rich--why we have a right to be rich. And he goes from, there one-by-one, knocking down all the arguments and rationalizations about "why I can't," "why it won't work for me," and most importantly, "I don't know how." He gets rid of them all. And he proceeds, step-by-careful-step to show the way. Simply, directly, profoundly. He ties up all the ribbons and shuts the gates as the reader moves from chapter to chapter.

I absolutely love this book--so much so that I'm teaching it.
