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 de-velop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.
That is how the book, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, starts.
The only people who I have ever heard say that we aren’t supposed to be rich base their belief on religion. If God created all the wonders of the world, then why wouldn’t he want you to have enough money to travel the world and see them all. It just doesn’t make sense to me. So, I think God does want us to be rich.
I’ve read the book several times and was never able to determine the exact formula that Wallace Wattles lays out in the book for how to be rich. Instead, I turned to someone who has studied the book for longer than I have been alive, Bob Proctor.
In case you don’t know who Bob Proctor is, if you have seen the movie, The Secret, he is the white haired guy who appears first and talks about how we can time the landing of a rocket on the moon to within a fraction of a second. I started listening to him before The Secret came out, and it was that movie that has really brought him into the mass public view.
After the success of The Secret, Bob Proctor redid his Science of Getting Rich (SGR) program with some additional insights from Michael Beckwith and Jack Canfield. The program came in a large black box and sold for $2,000. I have a friend who bought one of them at that price. I got lucky and heard that they were discontinuing the big black box a couple years later in favor of a digital version of the program and picked one up for only $3oo during their close-out sale.
Now Bob Proctor’s digital version of The Science of Getting Rich is available for even less than that and still has all of the additional content from Michael Beckwith and Jack Canfield. I have loaded it all onto my MP3 player and let it play randomly from this program and a couple other programs. I never know what piece of insight is going to come up, but I know it is going to be a good one.
I had the opportunity to attend one of Bob Proctor’s live seminars a few years ago, and even though I had already heard most of what he had to say, it was still well worth my time to go. He is an amazing speaker and it is always good to get a refresher on good information that you can use. So I enjoy having him on my MP3 player.
Check out Bob’s Science of Getting Rich program and see what you think. The program sold very well at $2,000. It is well worth the much smaller price now.
