Antwone Fisher was born in an Ohio correctional facility after his father had already been dead for two months and while his mother was incarcerated.  As a result, he grew up a ward of the state in foster care.  For over thirteen years, he lived with a couple who abused him horribly.  Daily he was beaten down – physically, verbally, and psychologically.  He never received a Christmas gift or a dime of allowance from his foster parents.  For years he was the victim of sexual abuse.  And he was often tied to a post in the basement and beaten.  His foster mother used to brag that she had once beaten him until he was unconscious.

By the time Fisher entered the third grade, he had lost any natural love for learning.  In addition, the constant admonition from his foster mother that he was the worst child in the world had convinced him that he couldn’t learn and had no future.  He failed fourth grade and was scheduled to repeat it.  But then something wonderful happened.  His foster family moved, which put him in a new school district.  His new teacher was Mrs. Profit.  “If there is such a thing as human beings who act as angels in our lives, Brenda Profit was that for me.

“There can be no progress, no achievement without sacrifice, and a man’s worldly success will be in the measure that he sacrifices his confused animal thoughts, and fixes his mind on the development of his plans, and the strengthening of his resolution and self-reliance.  And the higher he lifts his thoughts, the more manly, upright, and righteous he becomes, the greater will be his success, the more blessed and enduring will be his achievements.” ~ James Allen, As a Man Thinketh

“Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results. This is but saying that nothing can come from corn but corn, nothing from nettles but nettles.

“Man is manacled only by himself: thought and action are the jailers of Fate – they imprison, being base; they are also the angels of Freedom – they liberate, being noble.

His wishes and prayers are only gratified and answered when they harmonize with his thoughts and actions.” ~ James Allen, As a Man Thinketh
