Smile to life

by Serge ‘Mage’ Cote

To feel the power of this text, place yourself in the “I” 🙂

I start the day smiling to myself in the mirror.

We are in charge of our reaction to what happens around us.

We choose how we react.

No one can impose us how we react. It’s inside and no one can change what is inside. We are the only one who can do that.

I stand up and take action on my dream.

I look at the world and smile.

I know there’s some good things coming to me.

I know that I can change myself and change the world at the same time.

Motivation

by Serge ‘Mage’ Cote

To feel the power of this text, place yourself in the “I” 🙂

Justification and motivation are two very different source of power.

I can be a positive force in this world.

I know that I can reach my dream doing great things.

I will not let someone else bring me to do bad things. Even with all the powerful justification they put behind. In the end, I’m responsible of my actions. Even if I did them in the name of someone else.

I will keep up doing things for good.

I will not let anyone bring me down.

I will stand up and do what I think is right.

The Greatest Power by Serge ‘Mage’ Cote

The greatest power in the world is love.

Love is free.

Bring love around you.

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Don’t wait for a return on what you sent around you.

Give without any hope of getting a return.

Love is free, give it away. Smile and give more away.

“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.” – Henri Nouwen

Trust that you’ll get something in return even if you don’t identify it as so.

What you think by Serge ‘Mage’ Cote

You are what you think.

You canメt hide your true self.

“Love yourself. It is important to stay positive because beauty comes from the inside out.” – Jenn Proske

We believe the illusion because we want to.

True strength comes from within.

Stop waiting for the outside to change the inside.

Every great changes start from the inside.

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” – Lucille Ball

The Brand by Serge ‘Mage’ Cote

In the world of Blogging, you are the brand.

Whatever you post, it’s all from you. Even if you repost someone else’s post, it’s your choice, so it’s all from you.

How can we find ways to be interesting while keeping some stuff personal?

First, there’s a need to be true. Truth in what you think and believe is the first thing you need to be as you blog.

Second, you don’t need to impose your belief. What you believe will always come out of your post. If you stay away from being judgmental in your blog, things will be easier for you. **Warning: there’s a lot of people online who are searching for reason to confront. They’re searching for anything that will give them the opportunity to fight. Most of the time, it’s useless to respond to them. They don’t care who’s right or wrong, they only want to confront and fight.

Third, don’t post anything without taking the time to do a second or a third verification. If you take the time to read and adjust your post, you’ll end up with post that are nice to read and set up to present your idea in a clear and simple way.

Fourth, you don’t need to be perfect. Yes, do your best. But the main reason to have a blog is to post. So, if you find yourself stuck in front of a post, the best choice is always to post instead of not posting. And remember, you can still modify your post later if there’s a major error in it.

Fifth, if you are in a high rush of writing. Post something and keep the rest for another day when you don’t feel like writing that much. You should create post that are easy to read in less than 5 minutes. Why? Because our world is about short info. Yes, there’s still a lot of people that are reading long text, but the majority don’t. So, if you want to reach large audience, find a way to mix your long post into short ones.

In the blogging world, you are the brand. People will identify your post to you. They will identify your personality to your post. Don’t expect to hide anything. It will come out.

Be yourself and create some good stuff online. Many people underestimate the effect they have with their post. If you keep on posting good stuff, the right people will find your blog and they’ll be touch.
