Taming Your Gremlin®
A Surprisingly Simple Method for Getting Out of Your Own Way
by RICK CARSON
There is indeed a Gremlin in your head, and he’s out to make you miserable. Left to do his thing, he’ll zap your health, foul up your relationships, ruin your disposition, dampen your creativity, hamper your productivity, drive you into low-down funks, and wind you up in to fits of anxiety.
That’s where the book Taming Your Gremlin® and A Masterclass in Gremlin Taming come in. We’d like to introduce you to tools you can use, starting now, to become a first rate Gremlin-Tamer.
Be on your way to freedom from self-defeating behaviors and beliefs. The Taming Your Gremlin books blend Rick Carson’s laid-back style, Taoist wisdom, The Zen Theory of Change, and sound psychology in an easy-to-understand, unique, and practical system for banishing the nemesis within.
A FEW WORDS FROM RICK
Gremlin-Taming is a method for meeting the inner challenge that is inherent in every activity from climbing Mount Everest to getting a good night’s sleep. It is in a phrase or three, a graceful process for choosing light over darkness, good over evil (and boy those terms are loaded for people), or better yet, the true love that sustains you over the fear that can destroy you. It’s a meaty subject, to say the least, but one that is germane to having a fulfilling inner life and a peaceful interdependence with others.
We are, after all, in this thing together. And while it may sound like a wispy platitude, there is no getting around the raw and simple truth that peace on earth does, indeed, begin within.
Rick Carson, Author
“This book is not intended to guide you to enlightenment, or to eternal bliss, or to riches. It will,
however, help you to enjoy yourself more and more each day. It is simple and practical and I
hope that reading it brings you much pleasure.”
"Since at least the time of the Buddha, the 'Mind' has been recognized as the necessary ground of enlightenment, but also of all confusion and distress... Gremlin-taming is a most worthy ambition, and Rick Carson is a most worthy advocate and ally."

Your opening presentation to our Creative Financial Group executives was exactly what we needed. In one hour, the over 300 participants were inspired and entertained and, most importantly, they left with practical skills they could immediately put to use to tame their inner gremlins and create rewarding professional and personal relationships. Thanks a million, Rick. We look forward to having you back.

I picked up your book in Seattle before this trip began... Somehow, the process of going across the country to begin a job with so many possible difficulties with an open mind to enjoying myself has changed my life. . .The theory of yours that life is to be enjoyed is a remarkably simple one, yet it's amazing how many people believe that it is destiny that they accept and live with the daily pain that so many do. I did, for so long. And I'm still learning that it's a conscious choice. But, boy, what incredible things there are out here to enjoy.
