Is the Science of Getting Rich a Science or a Scam?
One of the ongoing problems that people face each day is a lack of money. Not just a lack of funds to pay for basic food, clothing and shelter, but a shortage of money to buy unique things and services that would make life so much more meaningful and enjoyable. The lack of money for these 'most important' things has caused widespread low self-worth, mental mediocrity and a horrible feeling of a life that has been wasted.
The idea that there is an exact "Science" of getting rich is preposterous to many people. They think that the supply of wealth is limited, and that there is only so much wealth to go around. They also believe that social and governmental institutions must go through a radical change before the masses would have even a chance at getting rich.
Well, this certainly is not true. It is true that if you look around the different parts of the world, the masses mostly live in dire poverty from one generation to the next.
But if these poverty stricken people start learning and acting on the principles contained in the Science of Getting Rich, nothing could stop them from rising out of their poverty and attaining great wealth. This is an exact science.
What does the science of getting rich actually teach? Is it something that I can learn and apply? One of the primary things it teaches is that we need to change the way we look at things and the way we are doing things.
For example, how comfortable are you with the idea of being very, very wealthy? You may think this is a crazy question. But how often have you heard it said "rich people are arrogant, haughty and uncaring?" Many religious people believe that rich people aren't even going to heaven. So if you knew you weren't going to heaven by becoming rich, do you think your sub-conscious "true self" would ever allow you to actually become rich? I don't think so.
So change the way you view rich people. Learn to think like they do. That is a big change. T. Harv Eker has written a great book "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind." This would be an excellent book to help change your wrong thinking about rich people.
Another great classic is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. This book has a lot of incredible information about wealthy people and exactly how they think and act. It's very important to model and follow those who are very rich, if we also want to be very wealthy.
Another important lesson. We must never regard the supply of money as being limited or finite. We must also never act in a competitive manner. This runs completely contrary to current business practices. Maybe this is a clue as to why they aren't doing so well and why 90% of new businesses fail. Hh..mm!
There is a totally higher plane of thought and energy that is calling us to connect with it. When I think about this higher plane, I think of this: God's method is always for fuller expansion and growth. He is not saving up for lean years ahead. He is not cutting back because of the current economic crisis. God's supply is infinite. He will never run out, and never run short. And you and I ARE connected to that same exact infinite supply. Isn't that a great feeling?
There are natural laws that work with a mathematical certainty. A great definition of "Natural Law" is "The uniform and orderly method of the omnipotent God."
The science of getting rich is anything but a scam. It is all about discovering what those "Natural Laws" are, and then changing our thinking and our actions so they line up with these natural laws. It's very exciting to know that when we do these things, we will get rich beyond our wildest expectations. I consider myself very fortunate to have "stumbled" upon the incredible teaching of The Science of Getting Rich.
