„Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully. Then act upon it.“

Giant Steps : Small Changes to Make a Big Difference : Daily Lessons in Self-mastery (1994), p. 341 <!-- Hidden section in above quote is attributed in some variants. -->
Context: You are now at a crossroads. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully. Then act upon it.

„Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.“

—  Ralph Waldo Emerson American philosopher, essayist, and poet 1803 - 1882

Attributed to Emerson in The Gift of Depression : Twenty-one Inspirational Stories Sharing Experience, Strength, and Hope (2001) by John F. Brown, p. 56, no prior occurrence of this a statement has been located; it seems to be derived from one which occurs in The Alchemist (1988) by Paulo Coelho, p. 22: When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
