We continue in out journey to look at the timeless advice contained in the book "Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace D. Wattles.
The book offers practical advice that if followed it will lead you to riches with mathematical certainty.
The first article of this series ( enter the URL here) talks about the right frame of mind. Start your journey by believing you can achieve your objective and continually think about your goals until they are realised.
The second advice on the book is with regards to increasing life. Wallace says that the desire for riches comes from a natural occurrence that we have to expand, in other words, to increase life.
The book uses the example of a seed that when dropped into the ground it springs into action and produces hundreds more seeds. He says that life, by living, multiplies itself. It is forever becoming more.
All human beings of all aspects of life and society naturally desire to continue to live. By seeking food, shelter and company we all seek to continually live and expand our lives.
Similarly, the desires for riches is the desire from within you to expand your life. It comes from possibility, or potential from within you to express yourself more and to achieve more.
If we all seek to expand our lives, our areas of interest, influence and earn and multiple riches our society will be in a much better position.
If we have more we can help more. It is like a snow ball effect, the more you have, the more you can help others in different ways. Your desire for riches is life within you seeking for fulfilment.
Wallace also discusses the topic of competition. He is completely against competition because in order for you to get rich, you don't need to have what others have. You have the capacity from within you, and life seeking fullness, will continually produce wealth via different ways.
Let me clarify this by using an example. There are seven notes in the western musical scale. With those seven notes, countless amount of music have been produced and countless will still be produced. Musicians don't need to copy each others' compositions. If you go to a music shop you have literally thousands of music that all come from the combination of those 7 notes.
The same apply to your journey for riches, you don't need to copy what others have done, you can always come with something new, which may be similar to what others have done in some cases, nevertheless it is new.
You don't need to compete or take what belongs to others. There are countless million of dollars yet to be produces. The wealth is unlimited, you don't need competition, you can generate wealth yourself.
"Don't look at the visible supply of wealth. Look always in the limitless riches in the formless substance and KNOW that they are coming to you as fast and as soon as you can receive them. Nobody can prevent you from having what is yours."
Some of the readers may look at this short article and say that there is no real advice towards becoming rich or financially independent. It is not true, the advice is to KNOW that you can get the riches you want and you don't need to copy the way that others have done. Life within you wants to increase. By focussing your mind on doing something and being able to achieve your objective, by learning and seeking to expand your life for your own benefit and the benefit of others around you, you will achieve the riches you need, it will come to you as you continue on your path towards financial independence.
