About Wallace D. Wattles

Wallace Delois Wattles was born on September 23, 1860, in the United States, and he lived until 1911. He was a relatively obscure figure during his lifetime but gained posthumous recognition as a pioneer in the self-help and personal development genre. His most famous work, "The Science of Getting Rich," was published in 1910 and has since become a classic in the field.

Wattles was a forward-thinking writer who advocated for a practical and metaphysical approach to achieving success and prosperity. His philosophy emphasized the power of positive thinking, creative visualization, and the alignment of one's thoughts with their desires. "The Science of Getting Rich" remains popular for its timeless principles that emphasize the importance of mindset, gratitude, and action in achieving financial success.

Wallace D. Wattles is included in the Success Masters Hall of Fame.
