Self Help Article - Destiny Is Not a Matter of Chance

"To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end in life."
*-- Robert Louis Stevenson {1850-1894 Poet, Novelist & Essayist}

"Persons of high self-esteem are not driven to make themselves superior to others; they do not seek to prove their value by measuring themselves against a comparative standard.  Their joy is being who they are, not in being better than someone else."
*-- Nathaniel Branden {American Psychologist}

"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."
*-- William Jennings Bryan {1860-1925 American Politician}
