The Science of Getting Rich LESSON 1

Why Does Wealth Lie in the Hands of a Few - While Large Numbers of Humanity Remain in a Perpetual State of Poverty?

Millions of people are already using the Law of Attraction to make their lives successful. It's no longer a secret, but a household term that is rightfully being given the attention it deserves.

You too can learn how to use the "Law of Attraction" to create whatever you want in life - be it money, love or happiness - and generate abundance.

But in this case, and indeed in the book that inspired The Secret, we're going to focus on generating abundance, money and wealth.

Which of course, begs the question...

Why Manifest Money First?

The Law of Attraction as explained in The Secret teaches how you can have, be and do whatever you want in life. So why focus on money?

Money on its own is neither good nor bad. It is a means to an end. However, there is an urgent need for teaching the laws of creating money to the world.

Take any group of 100 people at the start of their working career and follow them for 40 years until they reach retirement age and here's what you'll find, according to the Social Security Administration:

· Only 1 will be wealthy

· 4 will be financially secure

· 5 will continue working, not because they want to but because they have to

· 36 will be dead

· 54 will be dead broke - dependent on the meager Social Security checks, relatives, friends and even charity for a minimum standard of living.

That's 5% successful, 95% unsuccessful.

These, of course, are US statistics. In the rest of the world, especially the developing world, the situation is far worse.

But What Makes this 5% Different?

There are millionaires with college degrees, and millionaires with little education.

There are millionaires who were born rich. And there are millionaires who were once dead-broke and homeless.

There are millionaires in developed countries, but also millionaires in poor nations. There are plumbers who are millionaires, and doctors who starve.

There is no single quality that stands out among the wealthy except ONE...

The Wealthy People in the World Understand and Use the Law of Attraction in their Daily Lives.

The millionaires understand that abundance is there for the taking. It is not a win-lose situation - there is enough for everyone. We can all be rich.

But humanity must learn to harness the correct thought process to attract wealth...

Call it whatever you want.

The Science used by all the wealthy and wise people through centuries of time can be yours.

But first , I want you to answer a question...

How Do YOU Feel About Wealth?

See, it’s just not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless you are rich. In order to unfold the soul and to develop talent, you must have many things to use, and you cannot have these things unless you have money to buy them with.

How do you feel about that statement?

Many people get very uncomfortable when talking about money. Remember that feeling is a conscious awareness of the vibration you’re in. If you’re not comfortable around the idea that you deserve to be rich, it’s because you’re dealing with an idea that is foreign to your conditioned nature … we’re going to help you work through that feeling until it becomes comfortable.

Have you ever noticed that wealthy people are very comfortable talking about money?

Wealthy people know that it requires wealth to do great things. They know that the good you can do without money is confined to your own physical presence in a given place. To extend beyond your physical presence requires money. At some point in their lives, they made the decision to extend beyond their physical boundaries – to increase their service to a larger audience in need of their product or service. And, in so doing, riches invariably came their way.

What we have to get straight in our heads is that owning the money doesn’t mean ANYTHING.

It’s the DOING with money that develops us - it’s not in the having. And when you have more, you’re enabled to DO more.

~ Jack Canfield

Are You Attracting or Resisting Wealth from Entering Your Life?

Do You Need The Science of Getting Rich in Your Life?

Try this quick exercise.

Check the Boxes that Apply to You:

I desire more abundance in my life.

I'd like to be earning a far greater income.

I want to provide more for my family.

I sometimes worry about money.

I work hard, but don't see the income I desire.

There are many things in life I want, but cannot afford.

Without my current job, I have no other streams of income.

Now Imagine If...

Imagine if You could then use Your mind to manifest these decisions - without wavering - because it's crystal clear where you need to be and what you need to do.

Imagine if You could Create this Life of Your Dreams.

Imagine thousands of lives benefiting from your new creation - whether it's a book, a work of art, or a business.

Imagine creating jobs, changing lives, creating products that benefit humanity.

Imagine being a shining light - a bringer of wisdom and enlightenment to your community.

How would your family benefit? Whom would you influence? What would you seek to change about this world? How will you be remembered when you pass on? Whom will you teach?

Or the biggest question of all - What will be your mark on humanity?

It's Not Just About Money - It's About Becoming The Real You.

In the video below, Rev. Michael Beckwith Explains How You Can Be of Greater Service to the World Once You Understand The Spiritual Principles in The Science of Getting Rich

The Inspiration for the film - The Secret

The inspiration for the movie came from a simple little book written in 1910. It's called the "Science of Getting Rich" and its author was a man called Wallace D. Wattles.

This is a summary of Wallace's book:

There is a universal energy from which all things are made. This energy fills the entire universe.

When you form a thought in your head, you tap into this energy, and you actually create that which you are thinking about.

Mankind has the ability to create a thought and cause the subject of the thought to be created within this field of Universal Energy.

To activate this ability, we must learn to harness our creative mind. Typically, we function with our competitive mind. But to create things with thought, we need to activate the creative mind.

We can come into harmony with this Universal energy through the act of expressing gratitude. Gratitude unifies our mind with this all encompassing Universal energy.

To manifest something new, simply hold an image of what you seek in your mind. And express gratitude to the Universe for having granted this to you. To achieve wealth, apply this same principle - hold a clear vision of the wealth you hope to attain. Then express gratitude that this wealth is coming to you. You must have unwavering faith and devout gratitude.

All that you include in your mental image will come to you through the physical realm - through the process of natural ways such as trade and commerce.

To claim this wealth, you must be active. You must do all that you can do each day to make this vision a reality. Especially strive to deliver to others something of value greater than what they paid you for.

Those who practice these instructions will get rich. And the riches they receive will be in the exact proportion to the definiteness of their vision, the fixity of their purpose, the steadiness of their faith, and the depth of their gratitude.

The Power That Lies Within You

Tell me - Who are you. Really?

Peer within yourself and you'll find that you're made of molecules. Peer further and these molecules are made of atoms. Go even further, and the atoms are made of protons, neutrons and electrons - elementary particles dancing a cosmic dance.

But go one step deeper and now you're no longer matter - but energy.

Everything is made up of this Universal Energy. Including you.

The scientist Steve Grand wrote the following:

Think of an experience from your childhood. Something you remember clearly, something you can see, feel, maybe even smell, as if you were really there. After all, you really were there at the time, weren't you? How else would you remember it?

But here is the bombshell: you weren't there. Not a single atom that is your body today was there when that event took place....Matter flows from place to place and momentarily comes together to be you. Whatever you are, therefore, you are not the stuff of which you are made. If that doesn't make the hair stand at the back of you neck, read it again until it does, because it is important.

You , are energy in physical form. Or, to use a spiritual concept - you are a soul within a physical body - a particle of God.

Forget the religious definition of God for a moment. Think of God as an all encompassing Universal force. The energy that makes up the universe. A rock may look like it's still, but within it are trillions of subatomic particles whizzing about and brimming with energy. The rock is pure energy and movement - it's solidity and stillness are purely an illusion.

If everything is made up of energy, and this energy is what we call God, or Higher Consciousness - then you are part of God. Like every rock, every animal, every tree, every planet spinning around every distant star.

You, too, are pure energy - but with one difference. You are conscious of yourself. This self-awareness, when directed, can allow you to dictate what experiences you choose to bring into your world.

That which you think about, you create. Thoughts are things! And that which you think about, good or bad - you create into your own reality.

We all work with one infinite power. We all guide ourselves by the same law. That one law is the Law of Attraction. That which you think about - you attract into your life.

The law of attraction is always working. You can never escape it. You're attracting everything that comes into your life. When you understand this law - you understand The Secret - and you can now dictate what you choose to come into your life.

We become what we think about!

Now ask yourself... What do you normally think about?

Here lies the problem. Like most people, your dominant thoughts are usually about your daily worries, fears, and what you lack.

The Current Reality Trap

In The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace says, "You have the natural and inherent power to think what you want to think, but it requires more effort to do so than to think the thoughts that are suggested by appearances."

What Wattles is saying here is that when you think according to what you see around you – the current appearance of things … what you see as your result right now … it's easy to KEEP thinking that way. I mean, how in the world do you expect to get yourself out of this current result – you don’t know HOW it's going to change, so how can you THINK of it actually happening?

It's true - thinking your way out of your CURRENT result does take work. In fact, Wallace Wattles says the same when he writes, "To think TRUTH regardless of appearance is laborious and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work a person has to perform." But the key is - it CAN be done.

As a child you were probably programmed in much the same way as I was.

Although this "programming" started when we were babies, receiving report cards in elementary school is a great example, that's pretty universal to all of us. We were trained to look at the grades on our report card, rather than focus on the image of the grade we desired. We learned to let our results control our thinking instead of the other way around

Think about your debt and that's what you attract - MORE debt. Worry about your health and disease and that's the way you attract - MORE ill health.

See, because our thinking only and always controls our results … we need to be completely focused on – and be thinking about – DIFFERENT results than what we currently HAVE!

It's time to escape the current reality trap and to create your future anew.
Stay tuned for the next lesson . We're in for an exciting journey.
