Every thought you have is derived from an impression of the outside world. When you SEE HEAR SMELL TOUCH or TATSE something it INVOKES a thought. In other words, we are being controlled (really we are programmed) by the outside world. What we must start to do is live from the INSIDE OUT. Give control to you, and the outside will then be a reflection of the INSIDE.
These impressions create our THOUGHTS and our THOUGHTS determine how we FEEL. Therefore THINKING and FEELING as a combination is the secret ingredient to IMPRESSING your mind. Our Minds are easily IMPRESSED because we REACT (triggers emotions) to situations and people that make us FEEL bad (thought was just impressed), which leads to negativity and negativity repels money. You have to be on the right frequency to attract money. How..
Gratitude is the seed for more. Whatever you're grateful for you will pull more of that into your life. The power is not in the gratefulness alone but the power really resides in "feeling" grateful. Feeling grateful is sending out positive emotions out into the universe and whatever you are grateful for you align with on a vibrational level.
"When we realize this" as Wattles says, we loose all doubt for we now know how to create what we want to create and have what we want to have and become what we want to become. You have always had control over your life, but you have given control of it to other people and circumstances because you have allowed it to take possession of your mind by your REACTION to life.
Be mindful of your Words, be mindful of the words of others around you because life and death is in the power of the tongue. Words are powerful, because words determine how you feel and you can never "feel" really grateful and positive if you allow others to hurt you with their words because they are at an emotional level hurting your vibration and your vibration is what attracts everything you desire
Finally I ran out of those, and in the interim I reluctantly felt I should give this book one more try... I'm SO GLAD I DID! It turns out this book was written in 1910 (woulda helped me had I checked the copyright to begin with-explains the language anyway) OUT OF ALL THE LAW OF ATTRACTION AND SUCCESS BOOKS I'VE READ SO FAR, THIS BOOK IS THE BEST, AND THE ONLY ONE I CARRY EVERYWHERE AND REFER TO DAILY. ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. Mind you this was written BEFORE the term "Law of Attraction" was thrown about with regularity. It's fabulous, and gives a concise and clear modus operandi to achieve your dream life, even if your present situation really sucks. Wallace Wattles reminds us that it is a Certain Way of thinking, and living, that produces with certainty the life we create. I will absolutely buy this for everyone I care about.
However, it was written in a different style than most of us will be used to in the modern era. I took notes, thought about the information, and discussed it with my friends who were also reading it to fully understand what he was saying. But I truly believe that if you can understand and apply this information, you can use it to get whatever you want in life (not just financial wealth) AND contribute to the world at the same time.

On the one hand it adopts a mystical approach to the topic while at the same time asking the reader to refrain from supporting charities or doing any charitable work. It is rambling and shambolic and lacks focus and direction.
Spend your money on Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor, James Allen or David J. Schwartz...you'll be glad you did.
This book has been a direct inspiration for the documentary “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne and the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill and tells you everything as rules rather than philosophy and tells you that if you want to become rich than the guidelines mentioned in the book has to be followed as it is rather than being doubted upon.
The book confidently claims that the theories mentioned in the book if followed step by step with extreme belief and faith can make you achieve whatever you want to achieve in life.
The book deals with the method that whatever you think and say has meaning and just by manipulating with your thoughts and words inside you can actually change the reality outside. Most people think that what they are thinking does not have any meaning but whatever they are thinking of is actually creating a reality for them. The book tells that the mind is actually divided into two parts - conscious and subconscious mind and whatever data is fed into subconscious mind starts to come true with time with a due process of repetition.
The book does help and the book is really a guide for anyone who dreams of ever becoming rich. I think that most people who have read the book found the book to be ludicrous because they would doubt the authenticity of the author and whether what he is telling is true or not.
Again the entire theory seems like wishful thinking where anything that you think can come true which was also the basis of “Law of Attraction” preached in the documentary “The secret”. The documentary told the same things but they explained it better with the help of examples and personal experiences of people to which people responded more positively.
The book, however, requires multiple reading before it starts affecting your psyche and I have read it multiple times to claim that it has helped me tremendously. I was never a big earner but then I gave two years of my life to know more about the fact that how to get rich and along with the theories of Napoleon Hill, the advice of Sir Walter Wallace mentioned in this book helped me in earning more money every year.
I feel more in control of the mind. However, controlling your mind is not an easy thing to do and there are multiple books written on the same subject. An entire science has been developed to understand the subject and two scholars from Standford has actually developed a method in which you can reprogram your mind to make it think whatever you like. It’s called NLP, the full form of which is Neuro-Linguistic Programming. A free mind, in my opinion, is the more prone to negative thoughts, which this book advocate, is the biggest hurdle when it comes to becoming rich. Lack of self-belief and trust in oneself is the reason one does not trust things outside and hence ruins his own life by doubting every other thing in this world.
I would suggest that whenever you read this book, read it with an open mind and try to follow rules for three months at least before discarding them forever. They may not work for you, but I still reiterate that just because they won't work for you does not mean that the bits of advice given in the book are not valuable. They have worked for me and I really hope they will work for you too.
