Wallace D. Wattles on Where Many of Us Fail

In "Mental Co-Operation", the twelfth of fifteen articles in Wallace D. Wattles' Lessons in Constructive Science series, Wallace D. Wattles wrote:

"With us it is too much every man for himself, while we may think kindly of everybody... yet we are almost invariably trying by thought to attain things for ourselves, of ourselves, and by ourselves, without real regard for the rights or happiness of any other person on earth. And right here is where many of us fail.

There are altogether too many people who seek to use mental power as a means or instrumentally by the use of which they can get something for nothing; who think that in some way the new thought may be used in taking advantage of other people, and whose mental science is in reality nothing more nor less than an attempt at robbery. It goes without saying that sooner or later these people are going to come to failure and disaster."

In my experience, the desire for something for nothing ranks right up there with lack of a clear and definite next-level vision as to why folks fail, especially among those, interestingly enough, who claim to believe in and be following Mr. Wattles' philosophy.

My advice?

Don't you be one of them!

A very wealthy man once told me that the single biggest, most important lesson that he learned in life was that, and I quote him here, "there ain't no Santa Claus". He followed that up with, as I do to you, "I hope that doesn't shock you".

For more on the subject, here are an article and a post I wrote that I think you'll find helpful:

Note 1: In his book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill listed the "uncontrolled desire for something for nothing" as the twelfth of the thirty major causes of failure. Is it standing between you and your success?

Note 2: There's a bit more meaning to this quote than first meets the eye. To fully grasp all that it entails, I suggest that you read and the article it's from in its entirety and spend some serious time pondering it. I think you'll find, as I have, that it will be time well spent.
