Wait, did George Bernard Shaw *really* say this?

The inspirational saying on my tea today reads, "Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself" and is attributed to George Bernard Shaw.
My limited knowledge of G.B. 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 1990's self-help book which seems more plausible.
Are there any Shaw scholars or enthusiasts on AskMe who could shed light on this?
