Know the ‘WHY’

by Serge ‘Mage’ Cote

Do you know your WHY?

Without it, you can’t really achieve anything.

When you do something because someone else told you to. Then you neglect your own why.

When you can fit your why with the need of someone else, it’s when you find a powerful way to drive yourself to build your why.

Finding your WHY is the only way to progress in life.

Anything you do is under your responsibility. No one can take the responsibility for your actions. Whatever you do is your responsibility.

No god, no government, no boss, no family can take the responsibility for your actions.

Own your life.

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

  1. Job, in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), suffered much in a short period of time: the death of his 10 children, the loss of his wealth and health (Job 1:13-19. Amazingly, he responded with worship (verse 20). And,in verse 21, he said, “Naked, I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I shall return there. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord!” Wow! What faith! As time went on, his three friends began to judge him, thinking there must have been some sin in Job’s life which had brought God’s wrath upon him. Job asked God a lot of “why” questions to no avail and even demanded an audience with and explanation from God. Towards, the end of the book (Job 38), God appears to Job and rather than give him an explanation for his suffering, He says, to him, in verse 4, “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?” Wow! I used to think, “that was cold and cruel,” after all of what Job had been through. But, then, I realized that God was simply saying to Job and me, “I am your Creator and you are to trust me with everything.” Certainly, the Book of Job has been an inspiration to me in my times of suffering. Thank You, God, for sharing Job with us!

  2. “No god, no government, no boss, no family can take the responsibility for your actions.”

    Well, that ‘no god’ part sounded a bit atheistic… But… Okay… Cool

    God has given us the free will, we are given the consciousness and freedom of choice to make a decision within right and wrong – I interpret it that way

    But, overall, great article
