This book first came to my attention through “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne; it is the book that was given to her by her daughter that she credits with changing her life and encouraging her to create the movie and book mentioned above.
Wallace Wattles wrote three books, with this one being his most famous. Within he describes a scientific method by which anyone will be able to acquire riches by a process so simple as to be laughable if it were not true.
His secret: Do everything that is set for you to do each day without rushing or worrying, and know that as you more than fill your space in this world that a bigger place will arrive for you to fill.
He mentions that readers may not be able to acquire riches in the jobs they are currently in and encourages them not to surrender hope, for all they need to do is start looking around for opportunities to arrive.
He makes some points that every worker should read whether they believe in the Law of Attraction or not: one that sticks out is the fact that it is not in an employer’s best interest to promote a worker who fills his position well, but will look toward promoting a worker who “more than fills” their place.
For instance, if one works at a business and just does their duties, the owner is going to be perfectly content to leave that person there forever–but should that worker demonstrate that they are not only capable of completing their duties but are able to lead, encourage, direct, instruct and inspire their fellow workers the owner will look to them when they need a management position filled.
The bulk of this book discusses the ability that we all have to advance and how we should do everything each day with an eye to our future.
Everything we do, whether it is piece work or waiting on customers is a step into our future: by doing what we are doing right now to the best of our ability with an eye toward the future we are not only improving ourselves but increasing our chances for more opportunities and a better future.
This reviewer found this to be a very commonsense piece of literature that should be read by anyone who enters the workforce and must make a confession–she has read this book more than once and considers it a favorite in her collection.
You can locate a copy of this book at Amazon and other sites in a variety of formats both print and digital, with prices ranging from free and up. This book is truly an asset to any library.
