*Hexavian Article of thr Day* *Welcome to the Future* *The future belongs only to businesses set up to revolutionize their industry*. All businesses will be tech businesses soon. Either become one or get consumed by one. So I was talking to one of my techy mentees and he says “Mr Eizu, I may create an app that will help people calculate how many more years and days (up to seconds they will have more to live). It sounds scary yet valuable. That’s a fun way to make money. He meant he will be very successful. Now over to you. Who ever thought people will be able to buy cars and houses from mere blogging (there was no such career path just 10 years ago In Africa). I spoke to a yellow cab taxi driver in Lagos a few days ago and he said that all they do is sleep more at the parks. He thinks people don’t have money for taxis anymore, he doesn’t know its because of Uber. Who ever thought that over a billion very intelligent and careful people including you will willingly submit their most personal details including names, emails, phone numbers, photos, where they live, things and who they love to Mark Zuckerberg. It’s called Facebook. Globally, who ever thought the biggest companies in the world would come out of no where in just 10 years and take over companies that have been in existence for centuries. The Likes of Apple and Amazon have crossed a trillion valuation; with the likes of Google and Facebook is gunning to be the first trillion dollar company.These companies are trying to revolutionalise everything , but they were born out of people’s un-quenched thirst to know everything, so they did it so easily. Go Further Ahead for the future is sooner and stranger than you think. The world is thinking, what are you doing? Be prepared. be the first to step into the future or you’ll be consumed by it. In the words of John F Kennedy, “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future”. In the words of the management guru Peter Drucker, “The best way to predict the future is to create it”. *How is your business bringing the future closer?* Read more here:http://www.hbc.org.ng/the-future-of-businesses/

*Don’t apologize too much.* It’s not that bad. You can’t always keep that pity face because this universe is designed to attack the wounded. We don’t walk around like that, hommie! #ChurchForTheStreets . . . _No one in history has ever chocked to death from swallowing his/ her pride. Don’t consciously leave people wounded. When you’re wrong, say you’re sorry, be sincere about it and then move on. Move forward, no regrets, not backward to the pain. Don’t wallow in guilt. You haven’t done worse than King David did, or even his son, Solomon._ Like Google Map when driving, when you make an error in a turn, it never says reverse back. It quickly finds an alternative route, most times even shorter and better. God is like that. The devil may try to remind you of your past, laugh him to scorn and remind him of your future. . . . Call me mean, but I will never attend a pity party. In the bible, wounded or blemished animals were not accepted as offerings to God. I know better and I know that Learned Helplessness is a disease. It is a condition in which a person suffers from a sense of powerlessness, guilt or fear arising from a traumatic event or persistent failure on something. It is a potent weapon to hinder moving on to greater things. Pray for strength, to emerge from your weakness. In the words of the NBA legend Michael Jordan, he said _“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed”._ . . . *Don’t over beat yourself, we all make mistakes. Look, life is a journey and sometimes in that journey, you get lost.* God is known to bring beauty from ashes. In what you’re going through the glory of God will be revealed through it. Be calm! *#ChurchForTheStreets*

*The Power of Effective Communication* . . . _If I was to throw you in a room of 50 CEOs, for 50 minutes, how many complimentary cards will you give and how many can you receive before your the 50minute stop watch stops?_ How would you charm them to believe that they need you more than they need everyone else including their phone chargers? . . . It doesn’t matter what you do, Oga “busy bee”, *Activity is not productivity.* If you don’t know how to productively communicate and engage people you are just running on a thread mill. As a CEO, I discovered that my role is actually that of a CCO, Chief Communications Officer. So I started investing so much in it. In my years of business, I have come to the conclusion that in our lives, family, organization or business, it’s always less than 20 percent of our entire activities that brings 80 percent of the results. Mine is communication. Most people actually haven’t realized that. Your role is to realize yours. And then communicate that 20percent with charm, aura and drive. How long can you keep someone interested, for “if they are not interested, then you’re not interesting!” Can you predict the inscription on your tombstone? . . . How would you want to be remembered for? ***** *Let me tell you a quick story of the power of being charming and passionate. It’s a story of the biggest disruptors in Nigeria’s political history, Nzeogwu, the coup plotter of the bloody 1966 take over* ***** . . . It was oratory, courage and great communication skill that got Major Nzeogwu to rise fast into being made an instructor of the Nigerian Military training college. After Igbos were consistently massacred in foreign land, it was his passion and communication that made him a leader in the 1966 coup that...

To get anything you need to be persistent, but to keep that thing you need to be consistent. . . . Keep going. In the words of the 80's rapper Chuk D, "don't let a win get to your head and a loss to your heart". Go further ahead. In the words of Julie Andrews, "perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th". . . Persistence is the inner proof of desire, it invokes a realm of tipping points to your quantum leap. Perseverance and every sacrifice counts, whether life or business. Scarcity and pain creates value. In the words of one of the greatest European thinkers and Philosophers, Frederick Nietche, he says. That "most times, the value of a thing is not in its worth, its in what it costs us to get it". I concur. Perseverance is the hardwork you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. In the words of the Somalian singer K'naan ft Nas, he says "difficulty is an excuse dat history never accepts". It's not difficult to succeed, it starts with the right spark, the flames are lit here. . . I will see you tomorrow at HexavianMasterclass. I'll see you this weekend at The Hexavian Masterclass.

Weird conversations Do blind people feel love at first sight? Why is the word “abbreviation”, so long? Why is the meaning of life hard, when you have a dictionary. . . Well, my little niece once asked me, “Uncle Eizu, are oranges named orange because the color is orange, or is the color orange, orange because it’s same color as the fruit orange?”.. ewhooaa!!! ‪#‎AnalysisParalysis‬ Someone asked me, “why is the third hand of a clock called a seconds”. I think these are brilliant questions. . . *Be curious. Ask questions.* In the word of Henry Ford, “Anyone who stops learning is old. Whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young”. “The important thing is not to stop questioning.” – Albert Einstein As you continue the week, be curious. . . Curiosity killed the cat. But that’s a very honorable way to die. In life, *making mistakes is better than faking perfection* . Ask questions, even if you look stupid for a minute, it's better than appearing smart but really dumb for a lifetime. One of the top 5 companies racing right after Apple and Amazon for the trillion dollar mark is Google. A brand built exactly just 20 years go based on curiosity to help your curiosity, (Google) is today, one of the richest in the world. It made 9.4 billion dollars net income between in the first quarter of the year. And we are still waiting to share oil money. See a holocaust powered by ignorance and religion is coming to Nigeria… . . Be curious. Dig for knowledge and you will be shocked with the other discoveries you will make. Curiosity took the first men to space, and the reward became satellites and today’s internet. Out of sheer curiosity, men once dug the ground to find what was underneath, and guess what they found..today’s clean water! . . . Life is deep, there are things the forces of the universe does not want us to know. So when you become too curious, it distracts you, by giving you something else, with vague and material success. So curiosity at less, is our trick to succeed. Outsmart the universe. My dear, Keep Digging! I'll see you this weekend at The Hexavian Masterclass. DM me to attend
