“Wallace Wattles” was an American New Thought writer. His beliefs and thinking’s in New Thought and self-help movements.   His best known work was a book called The Science of Getting Rich in which he explains how to become wealthy. His beliefs and thinking are revolutionary and intriguing and have shaped culture and changed lives of many people. His beliefs are presented in a popular book called “The Secret.” I have summarized the book and presented his few beliefs.


A man lives for body, mind and soul. Society is so organized that man needs to be a possessor of things to use his talent fully. Being rich means wishing for a fuller life or better life i.e. to fully live for body mind and soul and the desire is praise worthy.


Like biology or arithmetic there is an exact science to get rich. There are exact way i.e doing things in certain way through which riches can be obtained. If anybody can get rich so can you. Even the poor can do riches following the steps in science of getting rich.


You may say I cannot get rich as I am a simple worker of a company. But there are exact ways and there are always a lot of opportunities available. There is a formless living substance which is intelligent and give you better opportunities.


Thought is the first step which can create tangible from the formless substance. Everything is made from a thinking substance. A carpenter made a table thinking its height and putting nails. Similarly a cook thought the exact elements while making food. Man is a thinking center and can originate thoughts. When man thinks he takes material from forms of nature. There is a formless substance from which everything are made and fills interspaces of universe. Every man has the natural power and freedom to think to create whatever he wants.


Focus yourself on creating increasing life. In order to know more, do more, gain more we must have more. We must get rich so that we can live more. It is the desire of God that you should get rich. He wants you to get rich because he can express himself better through you if you have plenty of things to use in giving him expression. He can live more in you if you have unlimited command of the means of life. The universe desires you to have everything you want to have. Nature is friendly to your plans


You want to get rich in order that you may eat, drink, and be merry when it is time to do these things; in order that you may surround yourself with beautiful things, see distant lands, feed your mind, and develop your intellect; in order that you may love men and do kind things, and be able to play a good part in helping the world to find truth.


Get rid of the idea that God wants you to sacrifice yourself for others, and that you can secure his favor by doing so; God requires nothing of the kind.


To get rich you need to commit yourself to giving more values. The paper you sold for few dollars can give the person a value to write which is giving something more in value. Selling watches can give  a value to person to attend his meeting in time, to manage time which is giving something more in value.


Original Substance wants to live all that is possible in you, and wants you to have all that you can or will use for the living of the most abundant life.


First, you believe that there is one Intelligent Substance, from which all things proceed; second, you believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire; and third, you relate yourself to It by a feeling of deep and profound gratitude. Gratitude bring you things more in value.


You must have a clear and definite mental picture of what you want. The clear is the mental picture of what you want the definite things it will bring to you.


To get rich, you need only to use your will power upon yourself. The more steady and continuous your faith and purpose, the more rapidly you will get rich, because you will make only POSITIVE impressions upon Substance; and you will not neutralize or offset them by negative impressions.


Things are not brought into being by thinking about their opposites. Health is never to be attained by studying disease and thinking about disease;.


You cannot retain a true and clear vision of wealth if you are constantly turning your attention to opposing pictures, whether they be external or imaginary.


Some people are poor because they think there is no wealth for them. Some are poor because they while they feel that there is a way out, some are poor because they are so lost in metaphysical  mazes and  concepts.


Put efficient actions to your thoughts and your mental picture. Man should be creative to his thoughts and beliefs but not competitive to others. Similarly his actions should be creative not competitive. A creative mind produces more creative things and ideas. While competitive mind brings rivalry.



You will get rich most easily in point of effort, if you do that for which you are best fitted; but you will get rich most satisfactorily if you do that which you WANT to do.


You can get into the business you want by making constructive use of the business you are already established in; by doing your daily work in a Certain Way.


Focus on being an advancing person.


Following these steps riches will definitely come to the person. Riches means a fuller life, a better life. God wants you to get rich so that you can enjoy his creations, so that you can live and make merry. God wants you to get rich so that you can use our talents fully. God can give you more if you enjoy more, if you live more, if you love more and use creative mind.
