For External Use Only

…Have you ever come across this inscription on products? We can see them on products like creams, hand sanitizers, perfumes, e.t.c. Products whose assignments are strictly for the outer part of the body. They are not supposed to be ingested or swallowed for whatever reason. These products, though designed to aid human life and even add aesthetic value, cause major damages (including death) once ingested. Don’t worry, I’m not talking about how to use creams or perfumes today. However, I want to draw your attention to the fact that some life experiences are meant for external use only, they are not meant to be ingested and taken to heart. You see, some experiences are designed to help us get further, redirect our steps/focus or cause us to go harder after whatever it is we’re pursuing. But once taken to heart, they have the potency to produce things like bitterness, self doubt, hatred, greed and all sorts of vices.

As long as we live on this earth, we will go through certain experiences that cause us pain: people we value will reject us, treat us with disdain or even betray us; ventures we were so sure would succeed could fail; assignments we felt would be a breeze may prove tough; we might do our very best to get favors and still get resounding “noes”; unexpected difficulties could arise in the different areas of our lives. When taken to heart, these experiences which have the potency to get us fired up and energized to keep going strong can become lethal.

Reading through the stories of champions, you’d find that they converted the negativity they experienced to produce something so positive that spurred them on to victory. Things that should have deterred them, had they taken them to heart, became the very things that helped them to succeed. Your heart is the core of who you are. It is the seat of your power and uniqueness… the edge you have over everyone else. Not just anything should get to it, protect it diligently so that it aids you in your journey to success.

Till next week,
Embrace your Super Power
