Want to be more successful, happier, wealthier? You could hire a personal coach: a business and personal-growth mentor who consults with you, offering advice and insights. Or you could read this book by Thomas Leonard, the "father of personal coaching" and founder of Coach U, a virtual university that trains coaches from 30 countries. In his lively The Portable Coach, Leonard presents 28 principles to help you shape your life, career, and relationships so that they are satisfying and profitable, with 10 ways to accomplish each principle, and additional tips and self-tests.
This is no superficial, feel-good-now, get-rich-tomorrow book. It's like having a year of sessions with this celebrated coach without paying his $400 per hour fee. Flip through the book until you land on just the right tip for what you need to learn right now, or take a progressive journey through the book, putting the tips into action as you go. The Portable Coach bursts with more immediately useful, personally relevant suggestions than you can possibly use. It should expand your mind, improve your performance, enhance your relationships (business and personal), help you enjoy life more, and give you many swift kicks toward becoming your best. Highly recommended. --Joan Price
From Library Journal
We're not talking football here. As a financial adviser, Leonard realized that more than anything else, he was a career counselor, confidant, and therapist to his clients. So he founded a movement to help people attain what they want through special coaching?and an institution called Coach University to provide the coaches. Here's a quick course for interested New Agers.

The premise of this book is that success is a byproduct of your growth as a person. That by focusing on your physical, emotional, and spiritual health, you naturally become more attractive to yourself and others. And by being attractive, you naturally PULL success to you. However "impractical" this may sound, it really works. I seen it work in my own life and in the lives of others.
This is a very different approach to success if you believe that you have to fight and scrape to succeed. I used to feel success was a constant zero-sum battle and my success came at a great cost to my health, relationships, and peace of mind. In all honesty, the approach described in this book, not only works, but it works better than the old "success at any cost" philosophy. It does require some willingness to suspend judgement and try some things that feel uncomfortable but for me, it's been worth it.
The book also suggests plenty of practical steps you can do immediately to begin seeing results. Also check out related tools at Thomas Leonard's website. There's a lot of great stuff there.
Chapter One addresses that immediately.

After listening to the audio book, I've purchased the phisical book and I do use some of the "laws" time to time.
