‘ I’m afraid that in 2019, there’s only one way to suc­ceed, sac­ri­fice! Peo­ple who have an edge are those who have made sacrifices or have started mak­ing them. To go up, choose some­thing hard to give up – you may need to deny to­day’s de­sires, to achieve to­mor­row’s dream ’

Once again, wel­come to 2019! We are in this to­gether. As part of my con­tri­bu­tion to your growth, here are 21 Laws to help you have a greater year. © Eizu

Law of pur­pose:

As 2019 starts, take some time out to play back what you’ve achieved last year, then as a pro­gres­sion write down and mem­o­rize what you want for 2019. If you don’t know and de­fine where you are go­ing, then every­where you get to would look like it. In 2019 – start right, chart your course.

Ap­pli­ca­tion:

cre­ate a cen­tral theme for this year. And then make a mind map us­ing the Be>do>have Tri­ads Of Man­i­fes­ta­tion con­cept (I mean de­fine the things to Be, what to Do and have) to make each Wheel Of Life bet­ter, Say 1.Fam­ily : Things you want to be, bro­ken down into sets of things to do and have. You can loop the same process for 2.Spir­i­tu­al­ity 3.Health 4.Busi­ness 5.Fi­nance 6.So­cials etc.

The law of vi­sion:

In 2019, if you’d be lim­ited, it will not be by your abil­i­ties, but by – Your vi­sion. Have a big pic­ture of what you want at the end of 2019 be­fore it even starts and en­sure that there is a progressive re­al­iza­tion of each of those set goals. It’s vi­tal that you do this.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Cre­ate a vi­sion board. Col­lect items and as­sets you wish to have, peo­ple you wish to be like, cut out the im­ages and at­tach them to the vi­sion board. Keep them in a place you ac­cess of­ten maybe by your mir­ror, wardrobe, work desk etc. It con­stantly re­minds you of all you need be while cre­at­ing a su­per­nat­u­ral and meta­phys­i­cal mag­net that draws them closer to your re­al­ity. This is in line with the faith move­ment and the laws of at­trac­tion.

The law of knowl­edge:

As 2018 ends the leg­endary Mayan age with the be­gin­ning of a new age pow­ered by the powers of knowl­edge, 2019 holds mas­sive growth for those who know. To grow more, to do more – learn more.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Have a PDP (an ac­cronym for Per­sonal Devel­op­ment Plan). It may be get­ting a set of men­tors and mentees, (to learn and in turn teach). It may be join­ing a book club, hav­ing one more de­gree, at­tend­ing any of the Hex­a­vian mas­ter­classes, Break­fast with Eizu se­ries or en­gag­ing Hex­avia in a re­treat or strat­egy ses­sion for your team, it may even be read­ing more books, trav­el­ing more etc

The law of brand­ing

De­fine who you want to be, and how you want to be seen next year. Please un­der­stand that the only thing more im­por­tant than what you’d be do­ing or sell­ing in 2019 is what the buyer be­lieves he is buy­ing – be branded.

Law of brand­ing:

De­fine who you want to be, and how you want to bed seen next year. Please un­der­stand that the only thing more im­por­tant than what you’d be do­ing or sell­ing in 2019 is what the buyer be­lieves he is buy­ing – be branded.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Take your online rep­re­sen­ta­tion se­ri­ous. Be in­ten­tional. Have a theme for your so­cial me­dia, cre­ate a logo, web­site, theme colour for your­self. De­fine what you be­lieve in and what you want to con­trib­ute to the world and be­gin to blog about it. Let peo­ple know you for some­thing.

The law of char­ac­ter

Be firm. Do not over­value what you are not and un­der­value what you are as well as what you do. In 2019, we will be­come what we have re­peat­edly done – char­ac­ter

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Make a list of things you’d never do. Hang around peo­ple who are more cred­i­ble. Choose to be truth­ful and hon­est in all sit­u­a­tions with your mind made up to ac­cept and en­joy the sacrifices and re­sults that come from it. Make a list of peo­ple you know with in­tegrity and then draw closer to them. They’d rub off on you. Cut off two faced peo­ple. Take your re­li­gion more se­ri­ously.

The law of value and re­sults

In 2019, please don’t be a busy bee like you’ve al­ways been. In the past, you may have worked hard, now it’s time to work smart. Look at the value chains of your life; rec­og­nize the things that have added the most value and things that have wasted your time. And then from this, know what to start, what to stop and what to keep do­ing. In our pur­suit for wealth, value is the cur­rency. Its glar­ing that peo­ple don’t pay for ef­forts, they pay for re­sults – in 2019, be re­sult ori­ented, add value.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Wake up ev­ery morn­ing with the prayer and mind­set to look­out for what to help with and who to help. Complain and judge less. At­tempt to be a so­lu­tion to a prob­lem around you and never a prob­lem to a so­lu­tion.

The law of peo­ple

2019 is the year of in­flu­ence, the year of peo­ple. It is that year that the re­la­tion­ships you have built in the past years would come to play. My ad­vice is that you know and stick with the right peo­ple. In 2019, how you NET­work will de­ter­mine your Net­worth. Be­gin to use your built con­nec­tions and good­will. And if you don’t have enough of that, then be­gin to build one. Re­mem­ber, peo­ple – are the great­est as­sets for 2019, in­vest in them.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Cre­ate an in­ner cir­cle. Have a mas­ter­mind group. Join a reli­gious cell. Be more in­volved with your com­mu­nity, vol­un­teer for so­cial work. Learn to be more as­sertive. Con­trol and be more in charge of your phys­i­cal and men­tal space while also lis­ten­ing more.

The law of cre­ativ­ity

Go across bound­aries. When we all think alike, then no one is think­ing – be cre­atively dif­fer­ent in 2019. Think out of the box, as a mat­ter of fact, think like there’s no box.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Find out the places and time of the day that stim­u­lates your creative juices. Then stay there more. Lever­age on the power of 4AM. Have a jotter or a notepad app close by. Be open to ev­ery­thing and at­tached to noth­ing. Share ideas, af­ter all, that’s what they are for.

The law of sac­ri­fice

I’m afraid that in 2019, there’s only one way to suc­ceed, sac­ri­fice! Peo­ple who have an edge are those who have made sacrifices or have star ted mak­ing them. To go up, choose some­thing hard to give up – you may need to deny to­day’s de­sires, to achieve to­mor­row’s dream.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Take up more re­spon­si­bil­i­ties!

The law of risks

Take out your fears and then take off to your dreams. Ships are safe at bay, but that’s not why there were made. Ea­gles learn to fly by jump­ing off the sky. In 2019, only those who will risk go­ing too far , can pos­si­bly find out how far it is pos­si­ble to go!

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips:

Be open to ever ything and at­tached to noth­ing. Face your fears.

The law of in­no­va­tions and tech­nol­ogy

If what you’ve done in the last years still looks big to you, then you haven’t done much this year. If your process, lifestyle and pat­tern don’t make things bet­ter, safer, sim­pler, work faster and life eas­ier , then it ’s not it – re­place it.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips :

hang around younger peo­ple more.

The law of process and con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment

You are ex­pected to gr ow daily, not in a day – Kaizen. Al­ways look for 3 things at ev­ery point in your life , what to start, what to stop and what to keep do­ing.

Prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions and tips

Have per­sonal rit­u­als and rou­tines. De­fine them, with pre­de­fined cy­cles.. Do them. Try not to break them. Also, never pass on a de­fect, ir­re­spec­tive of who ini­ti­ated it or who is re­spon­si­ble for it.
