Reseña del editor
Everybody has a Tiger. It is the thing that snarls at us when we think about making a change in our lives and stops us developing and achieving our potential. In Taming Tigers Jim Lawless shares his proven and inspirational training programme to help you achieve your dreams by taming the Tigers in your life.
Now for the first time, you can learn how to use these highly practical rules to overcome your fears and do things you never thought you could - in both your professional and private life.
1.Act boldly today - time is limited
2.Re-write your rulebook - challenge it hourly
3.Head in the direction of where you want to arrive, every day
4.It's all in the mind
5.The tools for Taming Tigers are all around you
6.There is no safety in numbers
7.Do something scary everyday
8.Understand and control your time to create change
9.Create disciplines - do the basics brilliantly
10.Never, never give up!
Read case studies from people who have changed their lives by following the rules, and hear about Jim's experience of grabbing his own Tiger by the tail, as he went from a thirty-six-year-old overweight non-riding consultant, to a fully-fledged jockey and UK freediving record holder in 12 months - proof that Taming Tigers works!

Lawless is constantly challenging his readers to put down the book and getting into action. On his website tamingtigers.com he offers accompanying movies. And in the book several friends and course participants share their testimonials about how the 10 Rules really worked. Whether it's daring to emigrate to Australia, start a new business or revive the company you're working for. Again, no instant success promised, discipline and excel in basics make up of of the rules. Enough said: meet your tigers and learn that they don't have teeth.
My apprehensions were soon dispelled as I was gripped by his story of becoming a jockey at the age of 30 as a result of a bet.
Lawless uses his experience of changing careers from an International Legal Counsel to an International Motivational Speaker, to illustrate what can be achieved by following his "10 Rules for Taming Tigers". It was at one of his early presentations to a group of salespeople that a member of the audience challenged him to a £1 bet that he could not use his rules to become a jockey within 12 months. Lawless' subsequent jockey experience is the storyline throughout the book to show how the 10 rules (for self development) can be applied.
As Lawless points out, these rules are not new. Nor did he invent them. But he has put them together in an eminently practical way and in a very entertaining book.
I liked the book. It was easy to read. The rules were easy to follow and there were plenty of practical examples and suggestions. Many chapters were followed by an invited story from someone who had applied one or more of the rules after attending one of Lawless' presentations.
The only small criticism I have is that at times some paragraphs were a bit wordy and repetitive. I occasionally found myself skipping ahead to get to the next bit of the "jockey story". As a visual person, I would have also liked to see some visual representations of the 10 rules. For me, it meant that I had to go back to check which rule was being referred to. Perhaps a fold out page with the rules illustrated would assist people like me.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book for two reasons. One, it's a good read. And secondly, the 10 rules are put in a very practical way that would make it easy for anyone to apply.
Bob Selden, author What To Do When You Become The Boss: How new managers become successful managers
Since reading it, and using the rules it outlines, I have done things I wouldn't have imagined, never mind dreamed of; worked in a world famous garden, changed jobs I hated but was stuck in, bought classic cars and motorcycles with money I didn't know I could have, employed my partner in work she loves doing when she was made redundant, raised funds for projects we both longed to try but didn't dare hope for, gone from wretchedly unfit to training with world renowned martial artists (World Champion and Olympic Medallists even), begun friendships with authors and award winning writers, and am currently sending my own work to theatre directors and film makers with the intention of seeing it performed; to name just a few. I kid you not.
If you read Taming Tigers, and apply the principles, stuff starts to happen - your life will change. Strap yourself in, light the blue touch-paper, and get ready to ride. Thanks Jim.
