If you are living in a certain environment you will never get beyond it unless you think beyond it. If you think of yourself as being poor all the time you will be poor. You must transcend your environment; lift yourself above it mentally, let man transcend in mind what he is and he will set in motion a power which will lift him out of that environment.
We must eliminate from our consciousness everything that supposes anything except the one and only perfect mind, God.
“Transcending Our Environment” by Ernest Holmes from “Uplift Magazine” in March of 1918 (truly timeless wisdom!)
