Training the Mind
Elizabeth Towne (1871 – 1965) was an American author, editor and publisher of New Thought and spiritual books. She was an advocate of positive thinking, believing strongly in thepower of the mind to create the life we desire. This message was reflected in her hundreds of books, pamphlets and magazine articles, many of which were best-sellers in their own right.
Towne was a strong advocate for women's rights and believed that women should have the same opportunities as men in all areas of life. She founded a women's club in New York City in 1911 called the Elizabeth Towne Club, which aimed to promote women's personal and professional development.
Towne was born on December 3, 1865, in Henrietta, New York, a small town near Rochester. Her parents were farmers, and she was the youngest of eight children. Her early life was marked by poverty and hardship, as her family struggled to make ends meet. Despite these challenges, Towne was an avid reader and had a thirst for knowledge. She attended a local high school and showed a talent for writing, but financial difficulties forced her to drop out before graduating.
In 1890, Towne moved to Chicago to work for a publishing company. There, she continued to pursue her interest in New Thought and began writing articles and essays on the subject. She also attended lectures and meetings of the movement's leaders and became involved in organizing events and promoting their ideas. This marked the beginning of Towne's long career as a writer, editor, and publisher in the New Thought movement.

“Thoughts are things; they have tremendous power. Thoughts of doubt and fear are pathways to failure. When you conquer negative attitudes of doubt and fear you conquer failure. Thoughts crystallize into habit and habit solidifies into circumstances.”
