Is There More to Life?


“There is a science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra or arithmetic.

There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty.”

~ Wallace Wattles

I get myself upset think of where I am – working from payslip to payslip – as supposed to where I feel I should be.

Working hard bringing someone else’s dream to reality

Working my ass off being a slave of another man’s cashflow system.

Waking up at 5am so that I can be ready to leave home at 5:45am, so that I can negotiate your way through traffic to get to work by 6:55am.

Start working at 7am.

Hopefully reaching my hourly targets.

Having lunch at 11am, and go back to work at 11:20.

Sign out at 14:00.

Sleep before 22:00 so that I can be up by 05:00, for the next 25 days, ranking up blood & sweat for that monthly payslip.

A playslip that will be used to pay off the debt dogs, to stop them from barking through my phone collecting what’s due to them.

For one more month anyways.

A cycle of working to pay the bills.

By being a slave to money I have lost my independence, and it is that loss that angers me.

Especially when I know we live with people who follow a different set of rules to earn money.

Answering to no one but themselves.

Protecting most of their hard-earned income instead of losing almost half of it to the government.

I mean wouldn’t it be nice to live life according to your rules?

Waking up when it suites you, deciding when & how you get paid?

A life (bad) debt-free life.

Heart free of regret when making purchases and being able to buy stuff for those I love.

This ideal had me searching, through books and audios, which led me to Wallace Delois Wattles (1860 – 1911) a Pioneer Success Writer, author of The Science of Getting Rich
