Prior to reading it I had spent my adult life feeling thick, regretting the fact I hadn't done a degree after I left school and had spent quite a few years working full time whilst completing a degree part time which I finally achieved it at the age of 42. Despite this I still didn't really believe in myself or my capabilities and I would have thought after all my life wanting to get to this place I would have been more than happy to have finally have done it (I got a 2:1). It was at this point I read your book and this gave me the confidence to try again with study at a higher level. I didn't know how I would get on but kept the thought in my mind that as long as I put the work in then anything is possible. I applied for a post grad in Emotional Education at Atlow Mill Centre through Derby University and was amazed to get a place on the course. Goal 10 always stayed with me 'never give up' and I achieved my goal despite becoming seriously ill and nearly dying at the end of the course.
Two major operations later I was determined I could still achieve more if I maintained the same mindset. I am now completing my Masters in Education (Year 2) which the thought of for me years ago would have been totally off the charts!
Jim has definitely got me hooked as a true believer of everything he has written and even though to some what I have achieved is minimimal in comparison to some people's aspirations it is proof that anything is possible. Who knows what I might choose to do after this as there is no stopping me now!!!
What he shares is a no nonsense and grounded assessment without pretending that it is easy. It is hugely refreshing and so different from a lot of other books.
The 10 rules are presented in a highly engaging and entertaining way. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is or aspires to be successful.
Once read, even if at times it makes for uncomfortable reflections on our life's course to date, Taming Tigers forces you to 'own' your life story - your script. The tiger is ever-present, but our belief in our own ability to disempower it grows each time we decide to face it.
One drawback is that there are too many advertisements in the book. I think it's ok to have advertisements there but there shouldn't be too many.
I also like the summary at the end of each chapter. It's really good for me to go back, to take note and to act on them because I think it's the purpose of all his works. Well done.
