Wallace D. Wattles
Pioneer Success Writer
Little is known about Wattles' life. He was born
in the USA shortly after the civil war, and experienced much failure in
years. Later in his life he took to studying the various religious
and philosophies of the world including those of Descartes, Spinoza,
Schopenhauer, Hegel, Swedenborg, Emerson, and others. It was through
tireless study and experimentation that he discovered the truth of New
principles and put them into practice in his own life. He began to
books outlining these principles. He practiced the technique of
and as his daughter Florence relates, "He wrote almost constantly. It
then that he formed his mental picture. He saw himself as a successful
a personality of power, an advancing man, and he began to work toward

Wattles' best known book, The Science of Getting Rich is a
down-to-earth, clear-cut and practical guide. A mental and spiritual
on how to become rich. No bones about it, when you follow the thoughts
in this book, you too will become rich, without the feelings of guilt.
a matter of fact, the author writes that the poverty-stricken (and even
the middle class) should be the ones to feel guilty by not living up to
their true potential as Thinking Beings.
Wattles says his book is "Intended for the men and women
whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and
philosophise afterward. It is pragmatical, not philosophical; a
practical manual, not a
lot of theory. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the
means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics,
who want prosperous results and who are willing to take the conclusions
science as a basis for action.
"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. You cannot rise to your greatest possible
height in talent or soul development unless you have plenty of money.
For to unfold your soul and to develop talent you must have many things
to use, and you cannot have these things unless you have money with
which to buy them."
Wattles died not long after the 1910 publication of The
Science of Getting Rich, but his books, along with those of another
well-known prosperity writer of that time, Orison Swett Marden, have
had a remarkable effect on people, and much of the success and
self-development literature of the past 100 years by the likes of
Napolean Hill, Robert Schuller, Anthony Robbins, etc., owes a great
debt to these two writers.
