Taming Your Tiger, Jim Lawless

Trailer Full video

Creator & Author of Taming Tigers

It took Jim Lawless fifteen years to pick up the phone and ring Alcoholics Anonymous. Now he’s one of the world’s best known motivational speakers and the best-selling author of Taming Tigers, a how-to guide to achieving what you thought was impossible. ‘My tiger was very real, roaring at me: you’re not going down this path!’ To prove his own theory, Lawless, a non-sportsman, became the UK’s deepest free diver and, in response to an audience challenge, a jockey within 12 months.
