The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.

What happens to a man is less significant than what happens within him.
Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.
Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.
It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
You have no choices about how you lose, but you do have a choice about how you come back and prepare to win again.
The way to activate the seeds of your creation is by making choices about the results you want to create. When you make a choice, you activate vast human energies and resources, which otherwise go untapped. All too often people fail to focus their choices upon results and therefore their choices are ineffective. If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
Most of life is choices, and the rest is pure dumb luck.
The difficulty in life is the choice.
Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?
While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.
