Competition by Serge ‘Mage’ Cote

Reality is a race that you make against yourself.

Your only competition is yourself.

You’ll never win if you keep on racing against others.

I can change my mind!

I can do better then the day before!

I can choose to be happy now!

It’s my responsibility to be happy!

I can overcome my fear!

My thoughts build things!

I exist and I can exist more for me!

I will stop the “Whining”!

I will focus on my dream!

Doing it better will bring me a little bit closer to my dream!

About Serge ‘Mage’ Cote Why do I write? I believe in the butterfly effect. As small my influence may be on the planet, it is still influence. I want to orient it for the better. I write my book with the idea of bringing something good into this world. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke I want my books to be a good place to be. A place that you visit often and feel good about it. I want my books to bring good energy so the readers will take action to make this world a better place. I want my books to guide those who don’t know why they feel so bad about their life. I want my books to be there after I’ll be gone. I want people to come back to them and use them in a positive way. “The greatest use of a life is to spend it on something that will outlast it.” – William James

  2. The apostle Paul said in I Corinthians 9:24-27, “Do you not know that those who run a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.”

    1. You have quoted one of my favorite Scriptures! If I may, I would like to add 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, “19 For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. 21 To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. 23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.”
