Meir Ezra Parents: Our Greatest Supporters

"Children are indebted to their parents for their upbringing -- if the parents did so. While some parents are so fiercely independent that they will accept no return on the obligation, it is nevertheless true that there often comes a time when it is the turn of the younger generation to care for their parents." -- L. Ron Hubbard from The Way to Happiness

How much did your parents pay to raise you? How much did they pay for your food, clothing, medical care, dental care, housing, child care and so on?

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, raising a child currently costs from $124,800 to $249,180. Up to a quarter-million dollars! For some of our parents, raising us was a major financial burden.

Some children say, "I don't like how my parents raised me. They ruined my life. I owe them nothing!" Even if true, we must remember this:

"One cannot overlook the fact that almost always, parents are acting from a very strong desire to do what they believe to be best for the child. In spite of all, one must remember that they are the only parents one has. And as such, no matter what, one should honor* them and help them." -- L. Ron Hubbard

Ten Ways to Honor and Help The People Who Raised You

1. Always remember Mother's Day, Father's Day and their birthdays.

2. Talk to them or visit them on a regular basis.

3. Be generous with them.

4. Share your successes.

5. Stop asking them to solve your problems.

6. Treat them with respect and courtesy at all times.

7. Ensure they have the healthcare insurance and long-term care arrangements they might need.

8. Get your brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces and children to honor and help them.

9. As they reach the ends of their lives, ensure they are as happy and comfortable as possible.

10. Thank them for raising you, teaching you and helping you start your adult life.


To be a huge success, you need all areas of your life to be in good shape. If you have a strained relationship with your parents, it will pull you down to a degree. If you have a wonderful relationship with your parents, it will give you a solid support base on which you can build your success.

Meir Ezra Love & Mistakes

A big mistake people are making is that they think they learn from experience… you don’t!

People that divorce will keep having bad relationship.

People that fail in business keep failing in business.

People don’t learn from mistakes. And, it applies to parents too!

Parents do not learn from their mistakes or their parents' mistakes, and so parents do not improve as parents.

I know it is shocking BUT it is true.

Now what we do know is that parents love their children.

When you love someone you want to do for them what you consider is good.

And that is the MISTAKE.

What you consider is good for you is NOT what ACTUALLY is good for your child.


You don’t know – no one gave you any play book on how to raise kids.

And that’s why the GP Parent Academy exists – we supply the play book for raising children…

Much Love,

Meir Ezra : Leadership Success

You are a leader, even if not officially. People follow your example, learn from you, want to know your opinions and so on. Constantly improving your leadership skills is essential to your success.

Most people have the wrong idea about leadership. For example, car salesman Jim was promoted to the Sales Manager position. During his first week as manager, he decided to show everyone who was boss.

Jim cracked the whip. He held a meeting and told the other sales people, “I want 10 cars sold today or someone will get fired!”

The sales people ran around looking busy and avoiding Jim. Everyone tried to force customers to buy cars, but car sales dropped.

Jim yelled even louder. “You can’t sell cars by pressuring customers, you idiots! Now get out there and sell these stupid cars!”

After a month of this, his two best sales people quit. Sales dropped even further.

Jim said, “I can’t believe this! What am I doing wrong?”

Five Bad Leadership Attitudes

Like many new managers, Jim had these five wrong ideas:

“Because I’m the manager, you better respect me . . . or else!”
“People are lazy; I have to force them to work.”
“I’m superior to everyone. I can do anything I want.”
“If you work for me, you need to kiss my butt.”
“If you don’t like how I run things, you can leave.”
Because of these attitudes, Jim’s sales people were selling fewer cars and looking for other jobs. If Jim did not change his attitude, he would also be looking for a new job soon.

Just in time, Jim learned this vital fact about management.

A Key to Leadership Success

“I believe that to command is to serve and only gives one the right to serve.” — L. Ron Hubbard

At first Jim said, “What? I’m supposed to serve others? How ridiculous!”

But then he thought it through. A lightbulb above his head flashed on.

“If I SERVE my staff members by teaching them about sales and cars, they know how to sell better.”

“If I SERVE my staff members with kindness and courtesy, they treat customers better!”

“If I’m here to SERVE my team, I don’t force them to make sales, I help them make sales.”

Meir Ezra: Work and Money

What do people really work for? Money? Security? Service? Family stability? Social recognition?

We can go on and on with the many reasons why people choose the kind of work they do. Some are motivated by the desire to serve others in spite of the low pay or the lack of it. Some work to simply savor the joys of doing work, as in the arts or in religious service. For others, much money as well as the chance to spread around the blessings it brings pushes them on to work at their jobs. And there are others who do not care about the money but simply work as long as they are able to bring something to the family table.

In general, however, people work and do not care much about what they can contribute to the lives of other people. They may work in a shoe factory and realize what they do somehow affects or benefits the lives of other people; but they have no illusions of causing great changes in the lives of others. Nor do they have the desire to reach out to the people they serve to find out how they may make their lives better.

Most people simply work and find simple satisfaction in knowing that what they do is valuable; but what matters at the end of the day is the pay they receive after their work is done. It does sound depressing although it happens millions of times throughout the world. Only a few people go out of their way to find ways to make more money so that they can bring more benefits to others or create difference in the lives of people they may not know.

Money, after all, is merely a tool. Even without much of it, a person can still cause great changes in the way people live. Unfortunately, in the modern world, it is quite impossible to reach out to people without the financial capability to feed, clothe, employ, teach or heal people. Charitable institutions ask for donations in order to pursue their noble work. Writers and musicians have to sell their works so that they can create more works of beauty.

Whatever a person does in life depends on his or her deepest motivations in life, whether it is for money or personal gain or for duty or service to others. The color of money is as varied as the intentions of the heart. But we can certainly try to judge the color of people’s hearts by the kind of work they do, the kind of money they make, the kind of lives they live and the kind of lives they influence.

Meir Ezra has shared his knowledge and insights on work and money to numerous people who attend his seminars at Guaranteed Prosperity. Do visit his website and learn more about his practical seminars.

Meir Ezra: The Secret to Perpetual Youth

The Internet, in general, has made many of us appreciate being young again. YouTube allows us to listen to old music or watch old movies that make us feel like teenagers again. Facebook connects us with childhood friends we have lost touch with for many years. The Web practically gives us the ability and freedom to enjoy more jokes, gain more education and wisdom and read more books.

There seems to be a surge in spending more time enjoying life using technology or seeing more of our world and appreciating culture and nature, making us feel more energetic and somehow younger in our bodies and our minds. Or so it seems. We may have found the fountain of youth, especially if we consider the flood of new and old information regarding the value of organic or natural food we have neglected for so many years and which our elders considered as their staple food that made them live longer lives without the supplements or medical advantages we have today.

Maybe the ability to enjoy life is the secret we may have lost in our rush to build modern civilizations that isolate people from their natural roots and their normal connection to the simple and good things in life. By that, we mean work, especially the mechanical or tedious tasks we do daily, has destroyed our innate desire and propensity to savor every moment of living in the same way that birds and animals do even when they seem to be foraging for food or striving to survive.

Yes, “playing” in the Internet, whether it be doing games or “liking” viral photos or videos, may be often done on the sly during office hours or while stuck in traffic, allowing people to escape the harsh realities of existence. Yet, it still speaks much of the normal urge of all people to lighten the load that they bear on any ordinary working day. So much so that we see droves of people head out to the country on weekends or even to the mall to splurge on the happiness or recreation they missed during the entire work week.

Rest and recreation has become such a prime commodity these days that we talk of mini-vacations we can take while surfing on our smartphones or dozing off on an office sofa. Work has made us feel so old and tired that we aim to recover our youth as much as we can with as many ways we can think of, whether it through yoga, painting, a movie, biking or chatting real-time or virtually.

And many do it, not really to regain their youth consciously but simply to unwind or to be diverted from stressful living. Children used to be immune to boredom and tiredness. They had energy for endless play; lately, however, they have shown tendencies to be easily bored especially when separated from their tablets or their Play Stations. Sleep used to be their only means of rest and real recreation.

When we were young, we made our own toys and invented our own games. There was not a place for boredom or lack of real playtime – that is, playtime using our hands, feet, body and mind.  People knew how to be young then. We rested to recreate once more. Today, we may have more varieties of games and toys; but we have less understanding and appreciation for remaining truly perpetually young. We rest but cannot seem to recreate ourselves, physically and emotionally. We are growing old much faster today.

Meir Ezra’s Seminar on Financial Expansion

A three-day seminar under Meir Ezra promises to provide participants the capability to manage the financial health of a company, a nation or an individual.  Ezra believes that simply following the basic laws of finance will allow any person to control money and make prosperity a reality.

One thing about reading Meir Ezra’s website, one eventually becomes convinced that much of the things regarding work and success which we consider difficult or complicated appear so simple and easy to achieve. So it is with finance which is a rather challenging problem to many people who invariably encounter money issues, big or small.

This three-day seminar is intended to impart the precise techniques of handling your finances and achieving success. Learning the rules of prosperity will make each person an active producer of wealth and not a victim of need.

Ezra hopes to teach the reality about building wealth, the steps used by successful people in maintain a high level of productivity, how to achieve the ability to acquire or buy anything you want, how to manage expenses, how to enhance profit, how to ascertain that you and your organization spend within your budget, and how to earn the money you will spend for any need you have.

Here is an outline of the seminar:

·        How to remove money worries

·        How to make more money than what you have

·        How to eliminate your debts

·        How to make money easy to obtain

·        How to regain money you have lost

·        How you can fix any difficult monetary problem you have right now

Having the confidence to control finances brings so much power to a person’s life. And without that power, it would be difficult to attain a high level of security and happiness in a fast-changing world. We can be victors and not victims if we can gain the right knowledge in financial management.

Meir Ezra: How to Improve Efficiency

One of the simplest yet wisest concepts of time comes from Meir Ezra and it goes like this:

What is the one thing we wish we could control better? What is the only thing you lose every single moment and can never get back…


Time is actually just a decision. If you do in one day A, and the next day you do the same A and also you do B, you effectively created time. If a one hour job took you thirty minutes, you created time. If you tightened up your day to create another spare hour, you of course created time!

And he is 100% right when he adds that everyone has the same number of hours in which to live and do what we have to do; yet phenomenally successful people such as Bill gates, Warren Buffet and Michael Jordan seem to have more hours to their day. Ezra believes they do actually have more time in their hands.

Efficiency does matter, if we only knew what it truly is and how we can achieve it in our own individual lives. Ezra defines efficiency or efficacy as “minimum action with maximum reaction”

Just how do we obtain maximum action with minimum reaction? How do we comprehend efficiency completely such that we can be like those people mentioned above and gain success and recognition according to our own abilities and ambitions.

Ezra believes there is but “ONE correct way to be efficient and fifty one incorrect ways”. Moreover, he stands by the principle that anyone can acquire competence, another close word to efficiency which he defines as “the ability to do what you do when you are doing it.”

In short, knowing the many other wrong ways of being inefficient as well as the one simple way of achieving efficiency resolve the whole issue at hand and can make any person become the most efficient person he or she can be. Doing so will bring success and prosperity through multiplying the most valuable resource we can have in life – time!

A three-day seminar under Meir Ezra and his staff will teach the following vital principles:

·        How we can properly achieve efficiency

·        How people mismanage time (the 51 incorrect ways)

·        How to properly accomplish tasks that need to be done

·        How to maximize your use of time in each day

·        How to imitate the work habits of the most famous and successful personalities

·        How to make people you know also efficient

·        How to obtain productive results.

·        How to deal with people who take away your time

·        How to properly schedule your day.

·        How to achieve high productivity

·        How to deal with people who are unproductive

·        How to manage people who produce more problems than solutions

Many people live through life wasting their lives, their time and their potential for success and happiness. Efficiency is not something taught early in many circles in life. Perhaps, many things we learned from our childhood, we simply learned from the way our parents learned them from their own parents and back into time.

It is time to take control of our lives and our time and make our dreams come true.
