I see this listed everywhere as a Maya Angelou quote, but I can't find the source. Is this actually a quote of hers or is it generic pablum?

It seems to be a misattribution. One source pointed to motivational writer David Joseph Schwartz, and Google Books shows it in his 1983 book The magic of getting what you want.
