Want to Star on Your Own Red Carpet?

As we watch the stars glide down the red carpet at premieres, it’s only natural to think what really makes Keira Knightley or Catherine Zeta Jones a star, or George Clooney or Brad Pitt? So what are the real secrets of A-list success? And how do you become a star on your own red carpet – in whatever you want to do?

In SHINE: A Powerful 4-Step Plan for Becoming a Star in Anything You Do (McGraw-Hill, paperback, price) Hollywood guru and star-maker, Larry Thompson, reveals the true success secrets of the A-list and explains not only how to look like a star, but more importantly, how to think, act, live and become a star in your own life.

Based on his years of experience with celebrities, Larry Thompson, a global motivator, Hollywood producer and personal manager to over 200 stars provides compelling stories and inspiring examples on the real reasons for the success of top celebrities including George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey and Paris Hilton - and how you can emulate their success formula.

With action-oriented exercises, probing questions, celebrity examples, and personal anecdotes, SHINE provides the prescription and support readers need to realise an “extreme motivational makeover” and map out their own unique ‘Road to Stardom.’
According to Thompson, there are four essential and attainable elements that are necessary to become a star: TALENT, RAGE, TEAM and LUCK.

* Identify Your TALENT: Stars must unlock their natural born gifts, whether it is a love for working with children, the sensibilities for managing people, or the skills for developing a new business…and then match them with their opportunities.

* Summon Your RAGE: Stars have an absolute, tunnel vision, maniacal focus on fulfilment 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 those rare "chance occurrences" they cannot.

Reflecting upon the extraordinary experiences of over 200 of his celebrity clients including Drew Barrymore, Cindy Crawford, William Shatner, Tori Spelling, Iman, Sonny & Cher and other star sensations, Larry Thompson’s inspirational, self-empowerment book has lashings of Hollywood glamour, which will unlock the door to real success for anybody who truly wants to shine in their life and reach their full potential.
