“Whatever may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich.”
“No one can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money, for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.
A person develops in mind, soul, and body by making use of things, and society is so organized that man must have money in order to become the possessor of things. Therefore, the basis of all advancement must be the science of getting rich.
The object of all life is development, and everything that lives has an inalienable right to all the development it is capable of attaining.
A person’s right to life means his right to have the free and unrestricted use of all the things which may be necessary to his fullest mental, spiritual, and physical enfoldment; or, in other words, his right to be rich.”
The Science of Getting Rich,
By Wallace Wattles
What is your present programming?
Throughout your life what have you been taught, observed, understood or heard from your parents and circle of influence about being rich? In other words if you were to tell your parents; “Hi Mom and Dad, I’ve decided to devote my time to being rich.” How do you think they’d respond?
“You have to stop living fairy tales?”
“You need to work a secure job, 40 hours a week for 30 years to retire.”
“Forget this rich nonsense, you’re wasting your time!”
“People like us don’t get rich, you need to accept that and move on.”
or will they say something like;
“We’re 100% behind you?”
“We know you can do it, we always said you have what it takes to be rich.”
Whatever they’d say; that’s your blueprint also.
It’s amazing how many people are really negative towards rich people. When they see a limo or luxury car drive bye, they immediately say something resentful under their breath. No wonder these people stay poor. They are just confirming through attraction that they do not want to be wealthy.
What do you think when you see rich people playing on the golf course, enjoying their yachts, living in their mansions or even attending $1000.00 a plate fund raising events?
- Do you admire them?
- Are you happy for them?
- Or do you envy and resent them by thinking:
- “Rich people keep everyone else poor”
- “Rich people are the problems in this society.
- “Rich people love to show off, they’re so lucky!”
It’s important that you determine your present wealth blueprint before you move on. You want to start on the right track and not sabotage yourself right from the go. If it’s a positive programming then let’s move ahead. If it’s negative then you must take the time to define it and change it through the methods you are learning.
Are you playing the victim game?
I’ve never met a wealthy victim. That is the one trait that they all have to have in common.
Here’s an interesting exercise: I’m going to ask you a question and I want you to write down the first answers that come to your mind no matter how silly or insignificant they may seem. Here’s the question; Why are you not rich right now?
If you’re answer involved any kind of excuse, rationalizing or blaming, then you’re playing the victim game. The answer you gave is exactly what has been holding you back.
Take 100% responsibility, let go of the whining and get moving!
