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

Practice

Whatever you practice, you will become skilled at doing. Winning athletes practice day after day, month after month, to hone their skills. So do the best musicians, actors, salespeople, airline pilots, preachers, photographers, designers -- the list goes on and on.

What do you practice every day? Do you practice positive, success-oriented skills and actions? Or do you practice such skills as making excuses, getting angry, complaining, assigning blame, and procrastinating.

Remember, the more you practice, the more skilled you become. Every moment, you increase your experience in some area. The more you practice anything, the more it becomes a part of you. So be aware of what you practice each day, each moment. Make sure that what you practice, is what you want to become.

— Ralph Marston
