Rightly Rich

Tom Wolfe, Author CHAPTER 10: Further Use of The Will RIGHTLY RICH QUOTE: “The very best thing you can do for the whole world is to make he most of yourself”.

The old adage, “I am my own worst enemy” is an archaic way of not taking responsibility for what comes out of my mouth. So I have changed it to suit the new plain of thought that tends to encourage me to evaluate my words through a new lens, thanks to my study of the Science of Getting Rich.  An example of what I’m talking about came about just recently in a conversation with my daughter, Leslie. And, the adage, “I am my own best enemy” came into being.  Dear Leslie: I think about the words that come out of my mouth with a lot … Continue reading

Sitting On The Fence Can Give You A Wedgie

In Chapter 4 we are first introduced to the truth that thoughts held in formless substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. Walter D. Wattles admonishes the seeker (that’s me and you) to steer clear of ideas, teachings, books, media, and news that might shake my faith. Thought sounds like what I was admonished to do in Sunday School; “Avoid the very appearance of evil”. As the watcher of my thoughts I notice that I sit on the fence a lot. I second guess one thing or a series of things that I’m doing or thinking, and I hope I can hop the fence and try the other way of doing … Continue reading

Striking It Rich

By all appearances, panning for gold is a thankless job. For your efforts, and if you are damn lucky, you’ll have a tiny glass vile with gold dust in the bottom.

They always have a tall-tale to tell, and just like the fish story about the “big” one that got away, they tell their gold fever story with such vim and vigor, they’ll having you believing that a gold nugget is just around the next river bend. Yes, by appearance, a … Continue reading

By All Appearances

GRATITUDE QUOTE – “The anxiety I feel is a result of viewing the world through a reactionary lens”. Nicole Stoddard – CHAPTER 4 – The First Principle in The Science of Getting Rich – Chapter 4 RIGHTLY RICH QUOTE – “To think what you want to think is to think TRUTH, regardless of appearances”. As usual casual conversations include small talk about the weather. As of late, they include talk about the economy.
