Wake up, there's a tiger in front of you!,
This review is from: Taming Tigers: Do things you never thought you could (Paperback)
This book has special meaning for me. It was the one that shook me out of avoiding the blatant truth - that I needed to stop thinking about running my own business and get on with it. Jim Lawless doesn't pull his punches - he asked whether I was writing the book of my life, or if I was letting my fears do the writing. I even put down the book for a few weeks it made me so uncomfortable. But I knew that I needed to get back to it and 'tame my tiger'.
The book focuses on four key areas;
The need to act boldly because time is limited - life is ticking away. Challenge the rules, the voices that tell you what is possible and what is not possible. Do something every day that takes you down the road you want to follow.
Your mind is the key, decide on the voices you are going to listen to. There are people and resources all around you that can help. Doing the same as everyone else isn't going to help, you need to forge your own path.
And the best one - do something scary every day - stretch that comfort zone. Understand how you use your valuable time, and use time to create change. Work out your disciplines - the basic things you are going to do consistently.
Never, never give up!
How will reading this book make you feel? Happy you are doing everything you can to make things happen, or aware that you need to take action to tame that tiger?
