apl-spiral-gifA Perfect Life
by Thomas Leonard
with Dave Buck

This incredible program is based on the radical premise that you CAN live your life on your own terms. Using a powerful process that combines clarity, gratitude and the perspective that perfection only exists NOW (vs. some day in the future), you will craft a perfect life using language that sings to your heart.

In the program there are numerous examples of how the right language means everything - as a coach, you will really benefit from these examples.

The program includes 12 original recordings by Thomas Leonard (priceless) and a complete 6-hour program recorded by Master Coach Dave Buck.

This extremely provocative program will inspire you and challenge your thinking in so many ways and greatly deepen what is possible for you as a person AND as a coach.
A Perfect Life is your birth rite! Claim it.

An Excerpt from Perfect Communication
Often coaches speak to what the person has just said, instead of speaking to where the person is that has caused them to say what they just said. Coaches need to speak to that, rather than the words they just gave you. Sometimes coaches are just chasing words through the hour”
- Thomas Leonard

Quotes from Students in the class

I'm enjoying my creativity, and I find myself doing things I normally wouldn't do and give myself permission to do more things. I love it!

One of the things on my Perfect Life list is to feel fit, healthy, and vital. Actually, I've really started to wake up and do things around that. I've highlighted that item, and now the choices for self-care seem easier, and I don't have to worry about motivating myself because I'm already motivated.

One of my goals was to reach financial independence by paying more attention to my finances. I found several problems in my checkbook, and am feeling more positive and confident already, and am on my way.

Are you ready for a Perfect Life?
If not now, when?.

They just seem to disappear.

3. Your sources of energy are very, very clean, and thus sustainable.

And you need far less energy in order to flourish.

4. You have ample outlets and opportunities for your creativity to flourish.

This, because you’re engaged in life as it unfolds today, not as it unfolded yesterday.

5. You attract the best people to you, naturally.

Everyone else will naturally leave you alone.

Because you can afford to be flexible.

Work is play. People are love. Ideas are money.

8. You operate at a higher plane.

Thus avoiding the common turbulence of life.

There is nothing in the way of the natural exchange of love.
