The intoxication of anger, like that of the grape, shows us to others, but hides us from ourselves.

Give it a reason

If you want fortune to favor you, give it a reason to do so. If you want people to notice you and respect you, give them a reason to respect you. If you seek success in the marketplace, give it a reason to make you successful. If you want to be paid lots of money by your employer or your clients, give them a reason to pay.

If you want to get something done, give yourself a reason to do it.

You cannot expect to get the effect, when you neglect to create the cause. Fortunes are made for a reason. Businesses grow for a reason. One person wins the race for a reason.

What’s the reason why you should get everything you want from life? Indeed, what IS the reason? There’s always a reason. Give your life a reason to be great, and it will be.

— Ralph Marston
