\u201cThe Science of Getting Rich\u201d
Join me in an opportunity toapply these principles in your own life. Just
to start your own business today (it'snot just for Moms!).
I\u2019m pleased to provide you with 285 new Power Affirmations based on \u201cThe Science of Getting Rich,\u201d by Wallace D. Wattles. \u201cThe Science of Getting Rich\u201d is a relatively short book, but powerful in its inspiration. In many ways, it\u2019s similar to \u201cThink and Grow Rich\u201d by Napoleon Hill in that it properly focuses on the supremacy of positive thought.
The year was 1910. Almost 100 years ago. Ten years before women even had the
right to vote in the U.S., Wallace D. Wattles published his book, "The Science of Getting
Rich." To put it into perspective, back in 1910, the majority of the modern conveniences
that we now take for granted didn't exist.

Of course, there's a lot more that was created and a lot more profoundly historical
events that have taken place, but you get the idea. The point of providing this list is to
put "The Science of Getting Rich" into historical perspective. The growth of the world
economy since 1910, simply demonstrates just how on target this little book is regarding
the process of creating new wealth. It is amazing to me that he was able to write such a
book long before all of these accomplishments. He truly was a visionary.
The book has long passed into the public domain and has largely been forgotten. But now, largely thanks to the internet, the book is making an amazing comeback. Having read the book several times now, I completely understand why its popularity is growing. I have read many of the classics of the self-help genre. And they are all fabulous. But as I look back on all I have studied and compare them with this small book by Wattles, I have to say that "The Science of Getting Rich" is superior in many respects.
2. The information and explanation he gives is simple, but complete on its own.
The works of others (including my own) really just provides details of how to tap
into and use our mind power.
One of the advantages of "The Science of Getting Rich" is its simplicity.
Sometimes you can spend too much time researching and gathering new
information. Too much information can result in mental overload and confusion.
When that happens, your powers of concentration are dissipated resulting in less
3. I now consider "The Science of Getting Rich" to be a foundational book\u2014just as
much as the classic "Think and Grow Rich" or "The Law of Success" by
I wish I had read "The Science of Getting Rich" years ago before any of these other
classic works. I would have learned vital lessons much faster, learned even more from
these other works, and be even further ahead than I am now.
Since "The Science of Getting Rich" has come into my life at the beginning of February
2005, I estimate that I have read it about 30 times or more. It's one of those books I
never get tired of re-reading or studying because the truths are so profound. And, yes,
the thoughts and ideas are helping me increase my achievements and my wealth.
