READY TO SLAY

READY TO SLAY

I’m staring at my laptop wondering what to write about the topic given to me by a talent initiative to encourage staff in a travel company (Wakanow) to grow their personal talents/gifts. It’s called….wait for it…. “Ready to Slay”.
After muttering those words countless times, I got stuck on the word “Slay”. This is a word usually used to describe killing a dragon. All hail the dragon movies, but slay in this particular context does not mean killing an individual or a dragon violently; nay, it is described has a way to impress or amuse someone, giving them that “wow” impression and/or the you-nailed-it expression.
Now, after successfully battling with the meaning, I am now faced with another challenge; answer the question probably tugging at your mind: Should he have clarified if it was in the individual context or joining the movement of Wakanow slaying the travel industry in Africa (slay in this context is “Killing”)? Then it hit me! It all falls to the different individuals who bring different ideas to achieve a slay vision of the company. Hey, variety is the spice of life, right?
Now I am going to throw this out to you; Are you ready to Slay? Because if you understand that we all have different unique slaying strengths in various fields, then you have to be ready to slay our ideas to ensuring that the company achieves its missions and goals. So we are hired solely because of this slay-skills and ideas and we have to be ready to do it in style. In GRAND style.
When I say you should slay as an individual, I will try to explain this from a movie Triple X Return of Xander Cage; “Let me simplify it for you, kick some ass, get the girl, and try to look dope while you’re doing it”. So breaking the statement from Agent Gibbons to slaying; Kick Some Ass, it means that we are always faced with challenges as individuals at various points in our lives. But this doesn’t mean that we should run away from these challenges or issues, but means it’s an opportunity to find a solution and solve it. Funny a lot of people go into prayer asking God to take away an issue or challenge rather than finding the solution or praying to him to help you find the solution to the problem. Wakanow slew recession by strategizing and we are expanding. Get the Girl; Okay! Remove every negative thought running in your mind, you need to get those incomes and revenue for the company. Please money in stocks and bank accounts is very hot and sexy to me and we need to get it. Look Dope While You Do It; My personal favourite! We have to slay it with class and swag because we are the best at it. We have to complement our brand by making it look very easy where others find it hard that’s because we are the best.
Finally, be the person who can walk into a tornado and come out the other side like it was a damned gentle breeze and look dope.
