A different slant on business and life

A different slant on business and life - Meir Ezra

Do you think things through? Before you act, do you consider what will happen as a result?

For example, if you want $500, you can just work at a job. Even at $7.00 per hour, it only takes two weeks to earn $500. You can spend it however you like, no stress, no secrets, no risks.

People who commit small crimes do not think in sequence either. “If I take a few office supplies, no one will know.” This person does not see the nagging feeling of guilt or the possibility of getting caught, getting fired and being labeled a criminal. This person does not realize that the risks far outweigh the tiny benefit.

Breaking agreements with your spouse, friends and family members can also have horrible consequences. For example, you agree to pick up a child at school. You decide you have just enough time to go have a beer after work and decide no one will mind if you’re a bit late. You then forget about the child entirely.

1. When making a big decision, think in sequence. If you do Plan A, what are the consequences? If you do Plan B, what are those consequences?

2. Teach children how to think in sequence. “If you hit your brother, what might happen? Let’s ask him.” “If you don’t do your homework, what will happen?” “If you steal candy from the store, what might happen? What would it be like to get caught? Let’s ask the store manager what would happen.”

3. Talk to criminals and potential criminals about sequences. Help them see the bigger picture. Get them to practice thinking in sequence. As crime hurts everyone directly or indirectly, we all increase our chances of success by helping criminals get smarter.

Tips for improving your opinion about yourself

Meir Ezra - Three Tips for Improving Your Opinion about Yourself

To succeed, you need to treat yourself with respect and admiration. To succeed, you need a high opinion of yourself.

1. Every time you criticize yourself about something, add a solution. Decide on a way to fix the weakness. Focus on improvement instead of problems.

For example, “I’m so stupid! Why didn’t I ask him about his other company when I had the chance? No wonder I’m such a loser . . . wait, how can I fix this? From now on, I’m taking five minutes before each important meeting and writing a list of things to do so I don’t mess up again. Great idea!”

2. Write down things about yourself of which you are proud. If necessary, start with small things, such as good personal habits. Keep writing until you improve your opinion.

For example, “I might be fat, but I brush my teeth regularly. I’m eating more vegetables these days. I haven’t gotten angry at my kids for a month. I’m earning more money this year. I’m helping Joe with his drinking problem . . . .”

3. If you want to permanently improve your opinion of yourself, you need to go deeper. The solution lies below your conscious level. “Dianetics: The Evolution of a Science” explains how you can find and erase the roots of your irrational thoughts.

Meir Ezra on rules for successful staff management

Meir Ezra Rules for successful staff management

If you can successfully manage people, you get more done and do more good with a group than you can as an individual. You are paid well because you are valuable to your company or organization. In fact, the best-paying jobs in this world are given to managers because good managers are so rare.

Unfortunately, they do not teach people management skills in traditional schools. Even business schools do not teach you how to hire people, improve their performances, resolve their disagreements, boost their morale and so on. Until L. Ron Hubbard worked out the skills and techniques you need for managing people, you had to learn how to manage on your own.

1. Do not expect to improve your status or popularity with your staff members by giving them raises. You improve your status by doing your job and actively leading your group.

For example, one of your employees says, “Come on Boss, I really need that raise. I’ll be loyal to you and make sure everyone likes you, if you give me the raise. Okay?” You say, “Sorry Jed. No raise. Maybe if you improve your productivity for a few months we can discuss it. Let’s get to work on that project as we’re already behind.”

2. Do not pull people off their jobs. It makes them feel insecure. They get the idea you have partially fired them and so they quit.

For example, you decide to answer the phone whenever you hear it ring. Your receptionist only gets to answer the phone when you are busy. Soon, the other employees start to answer phone calls whenever you are busy. Your receptionist quits.

3. You can make people work very hard as long as they are doing the job they were hired to do.

For example, your computer system crashes and 5000 records need to be entered by your data-entry staff before they can do their normal data-entry work. Because they were hired to do data entry, you say, “I know this will be hard, but you people need to get these 5000 records entered by the end of the day, even if you need to work all night. And then by the end of tomorrow, you need to catch up your regular work, as well.” The data-entry staff grumble a bit, but soon they are working harder than ever. They laugh about having pizza for dinner and make up a game to finish before 7 pm.

Meir Ezra gave a Lesson of the lifetime

Meir Ezra On this Genius Tour Gave a Lesson Of The Lifetime

In the year 2014, on a tour named Genius Tour, he addressed a large number of people in a 2-day seminar. With his fun filled and informational and inspirational presentation, he has won many hearts. His accent reflects that he is an Israeli. The ideas he shared with the people present in the seminar were stand alone and need your time to get absorbed. At the seminar he gave the real and simple meanings of the words that are frequently used, but are never considered deeply. You will be amazed to learn them and feel within that ‘Meir Ezra, you are really a genius.

Mr. Meir Ezra began with the meaning of truth. According to him, accurate place, time, event and form does not include continuation. However, a lie is the contrary to place, time, event and form. Also, it continues. He also told that – you (all human beings) are out best and worst judge. When you do something that you shouldn’t have, you feel bad, even if you don’t let it get expressed. Similarly, when you do something good, you feel glad. He also mentioned the words defined in the first dictionary that was scripted by Webster for empowering people to know various words. This bestow them with power and they will not be cheated upon.

Meir Ezra: How to spend money to make more money

How to spend money to make more money - Meir Ezra

Money spent to improve your knowledge, make you more competent or improve your skills, usually pays off from 100 to 1000 beans earned back for each bean spent. Investing in YOU pays off during your entire lifetime. Brilliant spending.

If you own a business, some employees’ pay may be good Bean Theory application. They do more than expected and add to the success of the business. Good spending.

Other employees do less than the others and try to suck everyone down to their unhappy existence. They are not a good investment of beans. Bad spending.

Each part of your business can be classified as good or bad spending. For example, an auto repair shop has several departments. Its auto paint department returns five beans for every bean paid into it. But its muffler department only returns one bean for each two beans it receives. If the owners are smart, they invest more beans into the paint department which increases their beans. The muffler department must either become profitable or be shut down ASAP.

Good business spending includes training, computers, office furniture, signs, efficient work spaces and so on. Spending beans to find the best employees, train employees or pay your highest producers top wages is also good spending.

Bad business spending may include original oil paintings for your office, wild unproven marketing ideas, exotic “business” trips for you and your family, unearned bonuses to buddies, golf club memberships and so on.

The way to spend money to make money is by using the “Bean Theory.”

“Finance is best understood as a COMMODITY* in terms of beans.” “So many beans issued to an activity and so many more beans back.”
— L. Ron Hubbard (*Commodity: An item that is bought, sold or traded.)

Bean Theory Examples

Example #1: You buy a $2500 stereo system with a credit card. The stereo system makes you no money and loses value over time. You pay $2000 in interest over five years before you pay off the credit card debt. For 4500 beans paid out, you get no beans back and have an asset worth 1200 beans or less. Bad spending.

Example #2: You buy a small old house. You pay $25,000 as a down payment and a home loan for $75,000. You invest $25,000 in upgrades and repairs. Over three years, you pay $13,000 in interest. You then sell the house for $160,000. For 25,000 beans for the down payment, 25,000 in repairs and 13,000 beans in loan interest, you get 22,000 beans after the loan is paid off. You also lived in the house for three years which saved you 12,000 beans in rent per year. Total profit of 58,000 beans. Good spending.

Example #3: You spend $500 to learn how to create websites. You enjoy the work and create some brilliant examples. Your friends ask you to help them and through word-of-mouth, you are soon earning an extra $2000 per month. Your 500 beans return thousands of beans back to you.

As you know, the business is supposed to give you money, yet, many people give money to the business. The weird part is that they think this is normal….

Meir Ezra: Organizational Spine

Organizational Spine - Meir Ezra

An organization, much like a person, has its own spine. It is a set of ten “vertebrae” that must be defined AND aligned. Each of the ten must agree with all the other nine.

When one or more items on this spine are not aligned, you have problems. The result is inactivity, internal noise, no production, lack of team spirit and failure.

The basic problem in any organization is the misalignment of those items.

The subject of getting those items aligned and gotten into action is called management.

You cannot effectively manage without defining those items and getting them aligned.

Learn how to get those items aligned and you can get production and results occurring.

In this seminar you will learn:

• How to create the spine for your company and your life!

• How to remove all counter intentions and negative energy from your path to success.

• What is policy and why policy is so important.

• How to find your and your company’s goals.

• How to find your and your company’s purposes (yes, it is not the same as the goal).

• How to plan.

• What to plan.

• What you need to know FIRST, BEFORE you can plan.

• And much more…

The spine is a very powerful management TOOL that once you will learn, you will know you won and will have unshakable certainty on how to get others to win with you.

Meir Ezra: PR, marketing and sales

Meir Ezra - PR, marketing and sales

After asking this very simple question to thousands of people, I KNOW that if you look at this question for real you will have to admit you are not sure.

The field of PR, Marketing and Sales has so many “experts” – yet most companies seem to have that as their major problem.

Nonetheless, it is clear that all too often something is not known in these fields. We remedy that.

This seminar will teach you:

• How to create a product that your clients will pay any amount of money to have.

• How to communicate your ideas effectively.

• How to create an endless pull from your clients with no effort.

• Why promotion fails.

• How much money you should spend on marketing.

• How to promote when you have no money.

• Why companies like Apple & Coke are so successful.

• How you can know in advance whether or not your marketing campaign will work.

• And countless other practical tools…

This seminar will change your concept of PR and Marketing forever. You will have a totally new viewpoint on the subject – but more importantly, you will know you can get results from marketing and you will not spend your money on useless marketing companies or marketing campaigns.

In fact, just the amount of marketing money this seminar saves you will pay for itself countless times over.

A major component of the seminar is the “Surveys” section. You will learn that most marketing problems stem from failure to CORRECTLY execute and evaluate surveys. It is not that people do not do surveys – they do – but they do not know HOW to do it correctly.

Ever filled out a survey for a place you go to often only to find, some time later, that there has been zero improvement in the area despite the many times you answered their survey? They simply don’t know how to survey – guaranteed.

If you want to succeed, you need to be able to create PR and Marketing – that is a fact.

If you want to know how to create PR and Marketing campaigns, or even get someone else to create them for you, you need to have this knowledge or you will waste time and money – and that is a fact.

They mix strategy with tactical, operational, projects, targets and other things. It is all a big mishmash for them… BUT they have total certainty that strategic planning is vitally important.

Well, how do you become the ultimate strategist?

The first step would be to understand what is strategic planning, and this is exactly what we will learn in this course.
