Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.

Your reasons

For every anxiety, for every fear, for every worry, for every anger and frustration you have a reason. Because those reasons seem so real and so compelling, you choose to experience anxiety, anger and all the rest.

Yet what if you had even stronger, even more compelling reasons to be confident, calm, focused, loving and effective? Just imagine the kinds of positive experiences those reasons would lead you to create.

For every thought and every action, you have your reasons. For every result you achieve, for every drama you act out, you have your reasons. Look around you, at all the things you’ve attracted to yourself. Look with an honest and discerning eye, and what you’ll see will be an accurate representation of your most genuine and driving reasons.

The quality of your life depends on the reasons you have for living it. The what of your life is a direct result of the why. If the what seems to be lacking, then the why is begging to be adjusted. And when the reasons are in line with who you are and who you want to be, so too will the experiences be.

Follow the reasons and purposes that express who you know you are, and your life will become what you know it can be.

— Ralph Marston
