1.  Map Your Road To Stardom 1 Hour or 2-Hour Speech

Why do some people always seem to grab the limelight, land the best jobs, and “Shine” in everything they do? Is it something that anyone can do?  Yes, says Larry Thompson, a leading Hollywood film producer and personal manager to over 200 Stars. Stars aren’t simply born – they explode into existence.  And you don’t have to be in the movies to be a Star. No matter who you are or what you do, you have unique Talents, a special “Star Quality," and opportunities for success. But to unlock your Star potential, you need to shine a light on yourself and your dreams—using methods that have worked for countless celebrities. The inspiring examples and true Hollywood stories in this life-changing speech illuminate the four essential and attainable elements you need to become a Star in any area of your life. In Mapping Your Road To Stardom, you’ll learn how to:

  • Identify Your Talent: Stars must unlock their natural born gifts, and then match them with their opportunities.
  • Summon Your Rage: Stars have an absolute, tunnel vision, maniacal focus on fulfillment and success.
  • Assemble a Team: Every Star has a Team of supporters including mentors, professionals, role models, motivators, and reality checkers.
  • Learn To Be Lucky: Stars must create the elements of Luck they can control, and identify and act quickly on “chance occurrences” they cannot control.

Based on his best-selling book SHINE:  A Powerful 4-Step Plan For Becoming A Star In Anything You Do, Larry helps you find the stardust within you and inspires you to reach your personal stardom.

2.    The Destiny Train – 1 Hour Speech

The train to your destiny is pulling out of the station, and Larry wants you on it!  Just get on for now…he will help you find a seat later.  Knowing who you are and where you want to go is essential to your journey.  Through a serious process of individual self-discovery, utilizing humorous but enlightening celebrity success stories, Larry helps the audience lay track to reach their destination of personal Stardom.  They arrive on Life’s Red Carpet totally motivated and inspired!

3. What Successful People Know That You Don’t -1 Hour Speech

Success: Everyone's definition of success is different but everyone's understanding of failure seems to be the same. Successful people are not always right.  Others still striving to be accomplished or fulfilled are not always wrong. But, then again, why does it appear at times that others you perceive as successful know something that you don't? Larry suggests that it's not what people know that makes them successful.  It's what they don't know - Fear.  Those without fear are rewarded with endless opportunities to explore and gain knowledge, experience, and specific methodologies for success in their chosen endeavors. By not being paralyzed with the fear of lacking knowledge, you gain the peace of mind, encouragement, and risk tolerance you need to discover strategies that will enable you to achieve your life's destiny.  Choice: Fear, which is enslaving, is a choice.  You can either yield to it, and be “tormented by anxiety,” or conquer it, and “live in the light of your destiny.”  Larry discusses the Sources of Fear, the Consequences of Fear, and How To Conquer Your Fears.  Now you know what successful people know!
