The fire of change-
I was just considering the importance of heat & fire required to turn raw plantain into fried plantain, to turn garri(Cassava flake) into Eba(an african meal eaten well with hands)…I bet the raw plantain don’t find it funny heating up in that hot oil, nor does the garri loves to be thrown into a hot steaming swimming poll…but without that heat, those two food derivation wouldn’t exist.
Such is life & success , the heat is often always needed, almost as a sine qua non to create the success we desire. The heat of preparation, rejection, fear, frustration, failure, delay, disappointment and sacrifice, just like the heat needed to fry the raw plantain is something we can’t escape, in fact we are suppose to embrace it because that’s how every person gets done…done in the frying pan of success.
So the next time you feel the heat(and you surely will if you must succeed), remember it’s a part of the process, and like the hurting plantain in hot oil, you can roll over knowing that this is only a stage in the process,…it’s not permanent and soon you will be ready & done, serving generations even yet unborn.
Ps. As I write this article, I am presently in an air-conditioned car sweating like I was dried under the sun…it’s one of the symptoms of malaria as they say, but u & I know that there is no such thing as sickness. Since Christ took up, I am not permitted to have it. Hence, regardless of this heat I am feeling on the inside, I cant give up because I just told you not to!
You can’t give up now my dear, the you are almost there and the world is eagerly waiting for you to arrive.
Go through the heat…trust me, it doesn’t kill.wink*
You are UNSTOPABLE!
Your prosperity&success is my top priority.
