Wallace D. Wattles self-help classic The Science Of Getting Rich {<Free Copy} has been hailed as the “Secret Behind The Secret” for good reason.

Born in 1860 this idealist spent most of his life living in poverty. He received very little formal education, and he worked on his parents farm in Illinois.

But Wattles wanted more out of life which lead him to the study of all things self-help. Immersing himself in the teachings of new thought thinkers such as Spinoza, Schopenhauer, and Emerson to name just a few, Wattles became determined to leave his mark upon the world.

Spending his final years constantly writing, Wattles used his own principles upon himself. Visualizing himself as a successful writer, he then went to work to make it a reality. Which he definitely did.

Enjoying prosperity and a degree of fame in his last few years, Wallace D. Wattles died in 1911 at the age of 51. He was married once and had three daughters.

Through intense study and experimentation of the universal laws of mind, Wattles developed his own unique formula for success, becoming the quintessential example of how well they worked.

Concise yet powerful, his books cut out the non-essentials and get straight to the point – that the  universal laws of mind are an exact science. Therefore, the application of those laws to achieve wealth and success are just as exact.

He boiled down his set of principles, so that the reader could easily understand them, and immediately put them to use.

Wattles body of work received an incredible resurgence of interest after Rhonda Byrne credited The Science Of Getting Rich as the inspiration behind her film and book The Secret.

I read and listened to Wattles classic well over one-hundred times – it’s only 99 pages long. I’ve also studied many other esoteric things, so I can see where the brilliant and insightful Wattles derived his conclusions from.

I also read The Science Of Being Great {<Free Copy} several times. Wattles also wrote The Science Of Being Well, but because he suffered from, and most likely died from extreme frailty, I never read it. He also wrote several pamphlets and articles.

For his amazing insights into Universal Mind, creative visualization, and universal laws of mind, Wallace D. Wattles’ writings shall forever live on.
