There’s a reason

There’s a reason for everything and when you take control of the reasons, you gain control of the results. If you want fortune to favor you, give it a reason to do so.

If what you want is the respect of others, give them a real, honest, positive reason to respect you. If you want to get something done, give yourself a real, compelling reason to do it.

Money is earned for a reason. People are attracted to others for a reason. Businesses grow and become successful for a reason. For every result that you desire, there’s a reason that will make it real.

Once you have a reason, once you’ve created the cause, the effect will naturally follow. Give the good things in life solid, undeniable reasons to come your way. And they will.
