Werk, Pray, Slay

Have you ever reached a peak in your life and all presumed to be glorious as you’re basking in every ounce of your greatness, while your skin is glowing, and the air hits your face just right. Every day feels like a dream! This particular stage in life is granted after you render everything in your soul to master your goals. Now that "Beast Mode" is over, your new high leaves you coasting!!

As the old saying goes, “You have to go through something in order to receive something”.

Do you harness a gift that at times causes others to be envious, unsupportive, zealous, and just downright mad! By all means, keep doing you and putting your best foot forward. But what I inquire of you is what motivates you to continuously crush these goals?

Aniyah, a former co-worker of mine reflected back once on all of the qualities she inhabited, including her infectious personality and mellow aura. Although she was a person many loved, there were those that refused to see all that Aniyah was worth- she gathered HATERS!

We would giggle during our lunch break digressions and I would explain to her, as she was a fellow Capricorn like myself, “We are your ending and beginning. If they don’t like you it’s because they don’t like themselves.” She looked over with a face of excitement in support of my words which were resonating in her soul!! If she could have shouted she probably would have, lol.

Aniyah's reaction...

After practically being forced out of the break room from all of our cackling, we returned back to work. Once our day was complete, Aniyah and I visited one of our favorite coffee shops, more so for the infused adult chocolate milk, yet it was the perfect environment to host a few of our mastermind sessions and get creative!

When digging a bit deeper into how Aniyah constantly annihilates the bullet points of her goals, she shared three principles that motivate and keep her spirit at an all-time high! ​

WERK: A congratulatory declaration of support, praise or approval, for an outstanding achievement in any area of life. Probably for original, sensational or courageous accomplishments in the fields of art, fashion, music, sport, and friendship. There is truth in the phrase, “Nothing good comes to those who wait.” If you truly desire it, sometimes you have to take it! Be present and let your needs be known!

PRAY- to make a request in a humble manner: to address God or a god with adoration, confession, supplication, or thanksgiving. I’m a firm believer in carrying FAITH! Whatever this message means to you, by all means never lose sight of this. Having a vision of something outside of yourself releases boundaries. In order for your blessings to fall you have to remain humble, faithful, and know that Glory is on the way!

SLAY- succeeded in something amazing. To kick ass, or to dominate. For Aniyah, "Slaying" came easy. She describes her depiction of SLAY to be an abundance of confidence. Knowing when to step up, and to step back! ​ I heard that, Aniyah! What principles do you live by that assist you throughout life? I would love to hear more about how you influence the world. As always thank you for your time as precious as it may be. Ensure to leave a comment and share this post on your social media pages. Ase’
