“The greatest thing about man is the ability to transcend himself, his ancestry, and his environment, and to become what he dreams of being.”
—Tully C. Knoles, early president of the College of the Pacific
Do me a favor. Please read today’s quote four more times.
Read it slowly.
Savor each word like a fine wine or choice morsel of an extraordinary meal. Let its full meaning sink into your bones to see how it does, or could, apply to your life today and as you move forward.
Where is your past or ancestry somehow holding you back and placing limits on what is possible?
Where is your current personal or professional environment blocking your progress and thwarting your efforts?
How can you summon the wondrous and extraordinary capacities within you to transcend your current self? How might this help you realize far more of your most inspired and compelling dreams?
