Inspiring The Secret – Wallace Wattles

Inspiring The Secret – Wallace Wattles

Have you read or seen the film of THE SECRET? I came across a book written by Wallace Wattles in the 1800’s – “The Science of Getting Rich”

I’m sure this must have been the inspiration for The Secret and Law of Attraction… Here’s a short exert which includes some great advice:

Put your whole mind into present action.

Do not give your creative impulse to Original Substance, and then sit down and wait for results; if you do, you will never get them. Act now. There is never any time but now and there will never be any time but now! If you are ever to begin to make ready for the reception of what you want, you must begin now.

And your action whatever it is must most likely be in your present business or employment and must be upon the persons and things in your present environment.

You cannot act where you are not, you cannot act where you have been and you cannot act where you are going to be = you can only act where you are!!

DO NOT BOTHER AS TO WHETHER YESTERDAY’S WORK WAS WELL DONE OR ILL DONE – DO TODAYS WORK WELL!!

DO NOT TRY TO DO TOMORROW’S WORK NOW – THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF TIME TO DO THAT WHEN YOU GET TO IT.

DO NOT TRY BY OCCULT OR MYSTICAL MEANS, TO ACT ON PEOPLE OR THINGS THAT ARE OUT OF YOUR REACH.

DO NOT WAIT FOR A CHANGE OF ENVIRONMENT BEFORE YOU ACT – GET A CHANGE OF ENVIRONMENT BY ACTION!!

You can so act upon the environment in which you are now as to cause yourself to be transferred to a better environment.

    I believe much of what we read or watch today is simply a more modern regurgitation of something written far older. But…does the newer way also elicit greater understanding?

      It’s a bit like the old saying: “What goes around comes around” – I think we understand some of the science behind the words better now but the principles remain true to the original philosophy which I suppose in many respects dates back to biblical times too…. Many of the old sayings still contain a lot of truth too… Interesting!
