There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

What’s the reason?

Are you looking to have more customers buy from you? Then give them a compelling reason to do so. Do you seek the respect and admiration of others? Give them a good, solid reason to respect and admire you. Fortune will favor you when you create an undeniable reason for it to do so.

The effect never comes without the cause. People buy from a particular merchant for a reason. It may be price, selection, integrity, location, convenience, or dozens of other factors. The point is, there is a reason. People admire you for a reason. Businesses grow for a reason. Success comes about for a reason.

Whatever you seek from life, find a reason why it should be yours. Create the cause, and the effect will naturally follow. The world is filled with abundance. Give it a good reason to come your way.

— Ralph Marston
