The Significance of the Insignificant

This program is designed to raise the consciousness of each participant to the importance of seemingly insignificant habits. It draws from both Small Change and The Seinfeld Show to explain exactly what higher consciousness is, and how to put higher consciousness to work in their lives.
This keynote has powerful practical and spiritual overtones that will give each participant a greater perspective on their work, family, and personal development.

Are You Ready for Success?
Larry begins with the ancient saying "When the student is ready the master appears." He suggests that too many are waiting for the master, or the opportunity, or the success to appear. Larry explains, however, that it's really about being ready. Participants learn that being ready is the first of four phases of success, but don't be surprised if success is given a fresh perspective from a corporate president who has taught yoga and meditation for nearly 35 years.
This keynote is equally powerful in a business setting, a personal development program or a spiritual program where success is specifically tailored to relationships.

The Secret to Success is a Three-Letter Word
Hardly anyone ever guesses the three-letter word, but by the end of the program, every participant will be able to acknowledge its incredible power. Participants keep guessing as Larry discusses the power of numerous three-letter words, from can, try, you, yes, even God, but he eliminates them one by one to the ongoing surprise of his audience. Hey, do you know the secret word?
This keynote is powerful as either a commencement speech for those just beginning their journey, or as a sales message that can energize even the most successful sales professionals.

The Strongest Foundation for Wealth and Success
We've all heard that "it takes money to make money." Well, Larry gives money and wealth a unique definition, one that is both practical and meaningful. Participants leave his talk inspired to build their foundation on the solid, practical and satisfying principles that Larry provides.
This message has business, personal and spiritual overtones and can provide a clearer vision for companies, employees or graduates.

The Magnitude of the Opportunity to Change Your Life
This program includes a unique demonstration that audiences will never forget. It is designed to impress upon each participant physically, mentally and emotionally just how great their opportunities really are. It really dramatizes how small change adds up.
Can be tailored to apply to sales meetings, employee motivation programs, self-improvement workshops, relationship programs or higher consciousness messages.
