The Benefits of Being THOT!

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13

Urban culture has given names for different people and their state in life. One that has taken off lately is THOT. People have used it on reality tv and street corners all across the nation. This term is used as a put-down, but I think we should take this word and make it positive. So, I'm going to discuss 3 benefits of being THOT.

1. Relentless- When you are THOT you have to keep going, you have to know your goal and be unstoppable until you reach it. A good THOT keeps going and doesn't take no for an answer. Setbacks become spring boards for greatness.

2. Recognize other THOT's around you- Learn to gravitate to those of like mind. You can accomplish more when you team up with people who are trying to accomplish the same kind of goals as you. The synergy of the group helps you to reach your goals and have accountability in the process.

3. Remember- Take the time to remember where you have come from. See the advances you have made and celebrate milestones along the way. This helps with momentum and finishing well. Nothing is more harmful to THOT than hitting a roadblock and giving up before you reach your desired destination.

So, being THOT can have its benefits. You learn how to keep going, use accountability, and celebrate small victories along the way. Urban culture has said that THOT is- That (garden tool) Over There. But, I believe the real meaning of THOT is- That Hustler Over There. So, stand, and when you have done all, stand again dressed in your armor ready for battle against anything or anyone that's trying keep you from living your best life.
