Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself

“Life isn’t about Finding Yourself. Life is about CREATING Yourself.”

The title of this post is a George Bernard Shaw quote I employ with my daughters in the hopes I will impress upon them, in a small way with a few words, what I will say here with many more words than their attention spans will allow. Throw out the recipe book, the paint-by-numbers kit, and anything anyone ever told you about who or what you should be—and chart your own course. We are trained from birth to make safe, reliable choices. Think about it. The last time you went to the store to look for something in particular, what was your motivation? Did you see an ad for it somewhere?

Shaw tells us that life is about building it, wither its education, knowledge, determination, and experience. We all start in school and move our way up to an higher education. By moving up into a higher education and creating different opportunities for us to choose in life. It is based on the opportunities we create throughout our life.

It's Metafilter's 20th anniversary! To celebrate, scan some cats or help fund Mefi! Life is about creating yourself" and is attributed to George Bernard Shaw. My limited knowledge of G. Shaw is that he was not prone to penning inspirational proverbs - did he really write this? Google gives me thousands of references to the quote as attributed to him, but no source. QuoteYard attributes it to a 's self-help book which seems more plausible.
