It was also the inspiration for the hugely popular 2006 hit film, “The Secret”.
The following quote from TSOGR, in particular, resonated with me: “It is perfectly right that you should give your best attention to the science of getting rich, for it is the noblest and most necessary of all studies. If you neglect this study, you are derelict in your duty to yourself, to God and humanity, for you can render to God and humanity no greater service than to make the most of yourself.”
We are reminded that it is not money that is “the root of all evil”, but the love of money itself.
Money is a tool to be used, not hoarded, and if we are not rich, if we have not taken care of our own needs, we can never be in a position to help others with their needs.
You cannot give away that which you do not have. How can you ever be of service to others if you do not “make the most of yourself”?
Wattles was a proponent of creative visualization. His daughter reported that he “formed a mental picture” or visual image, and then “worked toward the realization of this vision”.
These two ideas are seen repeatedly throughout the Master Key System.
Form a crystal clear mental picture of what you desire, act upon that which you have visualized and concentrated upon, and become the greatest version of yourself.
Don’t do the best you can; do your best!
