Glow Up Essentials

I believe in the power of affirmations and declarations. There is power in speaking things into existence. Like most m, knowing my purpose was something I desired, and now that I know, I am focusing on sustaining the foundation for my brand and biz.

If you are like me and you are preparing for a Glow Up, here are the essentials that you need to help you navigate through every transition toward living in purpose:

1. Ask God First

Taking matters into my own hands is something I am guilty of, and it never has worked out in my favor. I have made the commitment to asking my source for guidance before I make any move for my biz or brand.

You were created by a God with intentions. Seek the answers before you make decisions for your brand.

Seeking the guidance from God is a requirement for me in order to truly live in my purpose.

2. Prayer + Meditation

Prayer and Meditation are connected. When I meditate I pray and when I pray I meditate. Instead of only praying for what I want to happen or asking for Gods grace, I am praying and meditating when I am winning and when I am failing.

Stay mindful through prayer and meditation and receive connectivity and a peaceful heart.

I am meeting myself where I am by embracing my journey as it is and making mindfulness a priority.

3. Stay Grateful

It’s easy to be grateful when I have, but I am challenging myself to be grateful when I am struggling. It’s not easy, but it allows me to focus on the progress that my brand has seen, big or small.

Be grateful even when you win and when you fail.

I am giving myself the opportunity to celebrate small victories so that I remain humble and live in my gratefulness no matter where my journey leads.

4. Ask for Help

I have learned that if I don’t have the answer, someone does. Staying quiet for fear of looking inexperienced or naive is the biggest mistake I made when starting my brand and biz.

Being afraid to ask for help will hinder your brand and biz.

I ask for help with everything and I do not care how I may look asking any questions, as long as I get the answer.

5. Strong Tribe

Every community is not supportive and every tribe is not helping you glowup. In fact, many of the people I surrounded myself with did nothing to empower, challenge, and motivate me in building my brand.

A strong tribe helps build a strong brand.

I am surrounding myself with people who have the same goals as I do and those who have been doing it longer than I have.
