3 Simple Decisions That Made the Difference
By Tony Mase

When I first began studying the writings of Wallace D. Wattles, starting with his classic masterpiece "The Science of Getting Rich", I made three simple decisions that, looking back on them, made all the difference in the world as to how my life turned out.

Here they are...

Simple Decision #1 - I decided to focus *exclusively* on the writings of Wallace D. Wattles.

In Chapter 10 of "The Science of Getting Rich" (Further Use of the Will), Wallace D. Wattles wrote:

"Others still are poor because, while they have some notion of science, they have become so swamped and lost in the maze of metaphysical and occult theories that they do not know which road to take. They try a mixture of many systems and fail in all."

When I first read these words, a little over ten years ago, it was as if Wallace D. Wattles' hand had jumped out of the book and slapped me square across the side of the head. His words described me in a nutshell and I felt as though he'd written them especially for me.

No, I wasn't necessarily swamped and lost in the maze of metaphysical and occult theories, although I'd done some reading in those areas. However, I was so swamped and lost in the maze of how to get rich theories, how to be healthy theories, how to be successful theories, how to be happy theories, and how to win love theories, that I truly *didn't* know which road to take.

I was doing *exactly* what Wallace D. Wattles said, I was trying a mixture of many systems and failing in them all... *miserably*, I might add!

Strangely enough, over the years, it seemed like the more books I read, the more audio programs I listened to, and the more seminars I attended, the worse my life seemed to get.

At the time, I couldn't understand why that was happening, but after reading Wallace D. Wattles' words, I *clearly* understood why.

The more books I read, the more audio programs I listened to, and the more seminars I attended, the more swamped and lost I got. Even though I *already* had so many roads to choose from that I didn't know which road to take, what did I do?

I kept on adding more roads to further add to my confusion and the more systems and bits and pieces of systems I added, the more I failed. In other words, I just kept adding fuel to the fire, so to speak.

I'd read so many books, listened to so many audio programs, and attended so many seminars, that I was literally in "self-help hell", a "self-help hell" of my own creation!

So...

I decided to get rid of *all* the "self-help" type books, audio programs, and seminar notes I'd accumulated over the years (they numbered into the *thousands* :-)) and focus *exclusively* on this *ONE* "system" and this *ONE* "system* only until I "made good" with it.

Simple Decision #2 - I decided everything I'd ever learned was wrong or at least flawed in some way.

The more I read of Wallace D. Wattles' words, the more it became apparent to me that much of what I'd learned over the course of my life, and therefore much of what I believed to be true, was wrong, dead wrong!

So, rather than try to sort it all out, I made a blanket decision that *everything* I'd ever learned was wrong or at least flawed in some way and began a complete and total relearning process that continues to this day.

Simple Decision #3 - I decided to take action on what I was learning.

And therein lies the single most important decision I made, possibly the single most important decision I *ever* made.

Looking at this course of study as somewhat of a "last ditch effort" to "make good", I decided that, unlike with other courses of study I'd undertaken in the past where I did little more than read and mouth the words, this time I'd *act* on what I was learning.

In his preface to "The Science of Getting Rich", Wallace D. Wattles wrote:

"... read this book and do exactly as it tells you to do."

So...

That's *exactly* what I did!

And...

As they say...

The rest is history. :-)

Now...

Please note...

My use of the word "simple" and *not* the word "easy" when referring to these decisions. Although simple, these three decisions were anything but easy for me to make and even harder for me to follow through on.

However...

Looking back on them...

I can tell you this...

They're, without a doubt, three of the most rewarding decisions I ever made and followed through on in my entire life!
