Course Description

'I cannot recommend this course any more highly. I have found few things that are life changing, but this is one of those courses. Thanks so much for putting the information, summaries, teachings, and homework together! It is just plain awesome! ' - Rick.

'The use of the chalkboard lectures and just having Angela and Tom talk about the ideas and their applications is priceless. Plus, as a bonus, they utilize the 13x4 methodology to applying the book to your life. All in all, a mind-blowing experience. Good job! ' - Laura.

'This course will shake up and challenge your existing notions of how the world ‘is’ and reveal a wonderful perspective that will have an immediate impact on your life from day one. If you are even a little curious about the Science behind creating wealth (or anything for that matter) you will love this course.' - Sam.

This book should really have been called 'The Science of Giving Value'. But then it's not up to me, I didn't write the book. Wallace Wattles wrote it in 1910 and called it 'The Science of Getting Rich'. Possibly when 'Rich' wasn't such a dirty word.

In summary, 'Getting Rich' in this book is all about more life to all. Not, more life to you at the expense of others. It's all about delivering value to others.

Indeed you can paraphrase the whole perspective like this:

If you're not currently as wealthy as you'd like, you just haven't worked out a way to give enough value to enough people.

So, where did the Science of Getting Rich come from? Wallace D Wattles published the book in 1910 as a culmination of all his studies and experiments in the science-based, monistic approach to life, the universe and everything.

It's certainly an unusual book. It is not widely known, yet it has more wisdom and practical advice in its 16 short chapters than everything else I have ever read, combined.

I have read (or listened to) this book over 1000 times and I keep getting more out of it, every time I read it, I get something new. The gift that keeps on giving.

So, why do I like it so much?

It advocates an approach that is so different from everything else I've ever read.

It's practical.

It's simple.

It's based on Science.

It works.

OK, so if it's so good, why hasn't anyone heard of it?

Well, it could be something to do with the writing style being pretty dense and unappealing, which is one of the reasons we've turned it into a course.

The other reasons we created this programme:

We wanted to show how the science behind the book was a century ahead of its time.

We wanted to give you stories that support how well it works for everyone we've used it with.

We wanted to give you the TOOLS to make it easier to take action on the principles.

We wanted to apply our 13x4 system for Advanced Mind Mastery to the Science of Getting Rich, in the hope that everyone around the world will get truly wealthy, rather than this be just 'a book they read once and thought was quite good.'

(Read the book and see why we're not just completely out of our minds!!! )

That old 'One Thing at a Time' idea again!

Anyway, have a look here at the preface to the Science of Getting Rich and see if you can get why we needed to modernise it a bit!

'This book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.

It is expected that the reader will take the fundamental statements upon faith, just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison; and, taking the statements upon faith, that he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich; for the science herein applied is an exact science, and failure is impossible. For the benefit, however, of those who wish to investigate philosophical theories and so secure a logical basis for faith, I will here cite certain authorities.

The monistic theory of the universe the theory that One is All, and that All is One; That one Substance manifest itself as the seeming many elements of the material world -is of Hindu origin, and has been gradually winning its way into the thought of the western world for two hundred years. It is the foundation of all the Oriental philosophies, and of those of Descartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz, Schopenhauer, Hegel, and Emerson.

The reader who would dig to the philosophical foundations of this is advised to read Hegel and Emerson for himself.

In writing this book I have sacrificed all other considerations to plainness and simplicity of style, so that all might understand. The plan of action laid down herein was deduced from the conclusions of philosophy; it has been thoroughly tested, and bears the supreme test of practical experiment; it works. If you wish to know how the conclusions were arrived at, read the writings of the authors mentioned above; and if you wish to reap the fruits of their philosophies in actual practice, read this book and do exactly as it tells you to do.'

Instructor Biography

Tom Cassidy, Comprehensivist, Education Reformer

Tom Cassidy - Comprehensivist, Education Reformer, Reasonable Polymath, using continuous development frameworks to help people improve all areas of their lives: self-worth, self-belief, goal-achieving, feeling good, achieving sustainable health and deeply fulfilling relationships.

My mantra is: 'Feel Good. Do Stuff.'

Life's not about meditating on the top of a mountain in Nepal, feeling great, achieving enlightenment for yourself...

And it's definitely not about going through life doing things, without having awareness, being busy, achieving a lot but not being mindful of the bigger picture.

It's about both.

Feel good. Do Stuff.

Feel great about yourself, about life, the universe and everything, but do loads of things as well. Have a family, run a business, learn Italian, travel the world, change the world - Do Stuff.

I mean, why not?

I've spent the last 25+ years combining the wisdom of hundreds of years of the study of global philosophies, human effectiveness, modern findings of behavioural science, recent breakthroughs in the understanding of brain physiology and even the results of quantum mechanics into practical, continuous development frameworks for getting things done.

Systems based on practical algorithms of thought and of operation. Algorithms that are easy enough for most people to do just as they are, without having to change any aspect of their life. 'Reasonable Algorithms for Reasonable People.'

In my experience, the most effective continuous development frameworks are those which have duration, cadence and autonomy:

Autonomy - The framework is customisable, adaptable for every participant.

Cadence - The framework has a natural rhythm to it, a cyclic frequency.

Duration - The framework is designed for longitudinal impact and long term growth.

And this framework that I have put together appears to be very robust in its ability to get results, mostly because it requires a very small amount of willpower to make it work. People can stick to it quite effectively.

You still need to do the work. But the willpower you need to get the results is almost certainly the lowest you've ever used for achieving anything in your life, ever.

Please feel free to connect with me however best suits you. I'm always open to exploring ideas either virtually or in person.

All the best

Tom

Instructor Biography

Angela R Loeb, Self-Development Consultant

A participant in one my classes once said, "Imagine if we lived in a world where even a small percentage of people started doing what they were born to do - wow what a world it would be!"

Yes! I agree!

I'm grateful and honored that my self-development programs and processes continue to serve so many all over the world. It's awesome to see that "small percentage" of engaged and excited people growing daily!

Basically, I'm really into self-development... learning it, teaching it, and supporting others who do too.

And I like results. While it's fun to talk about the esoteric side of things (and I really do love having such conversations!), it's even more fun to take action. What I do best is translate big, abstract concepts on how to make the most of ourselves and get where we want to go in life into easily understood and executable steps that work. All of my programs, as well as the books and articles I've written, reflect that passion.

After a 3-year hiatus, I'm back on Blog Talk Radio with my own show, Be Radiant Radio. Hope you'll find me there and tune in live or listen to the archived recordings at your leisure.

And please feel free to friend, follow, like, and link with me online at G+, Facebook, and Twitter.

Be well and shine on!
Angela
