"How to Promote Yourself”, also known as “Making the Man Who Can”, by Wallace D. Wattles, is considered the preface to the business metaphysics book “The Science of Getting Rich”.

The book delves into the realm of personal development and self-empowerment, advocating the importance of self-growth, both internally and externally. Wattles emphasizes the transformative power of positive thinking and visualization, suggesting that these practices can attract favorable outcomes. 

The book underscores the necessity of taking concrete actions towards goals, highlighting that success is a blend of positive thought and purposeful action. A central theme is the power of belief; Wattles contends that believing in oneself and one's abilities is pivotal for success, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy where confidence begets competence. He also guides readers on creating and seizing opportunities, being proactive, and prepared to capitalize on situations leading to success. Overcoming mental and physical limitations is another key aspect, as Wattles encourages pushing beyond comfort zones and overcoming self-imposed barriers. 

The concept of success in this book is holistic, encompassing not just financial or career achievements but also personal fulfillment and happiness, making it a foundational text in the self-help and personal development genre. $$$
