Book Review: Heart of a Champion by Donene Taylor

If you have ever thought about quitting. Felt like you didn’t have enough talent. Didn’t have enough confidence.

That you faced more adversity than others. You have faced more trauma than others. That you have tried everything.

That you work harder and want it more than anyone else.

And you just can’t see how to make it all come together, to pursue your goals.

Then you need to read this book. You need to make this book one of your top “go-to” references.

In Heart of a Champion, you will learn about Donene Taylor’s pursuit of her WPRA World Championship in Tie Down Roping, and it’s not a simple path.

Donene’s story is raw and honest. Donene explains every detail of her path and unapologetically explains her weaknesses and how she addressed them. This book is refreshing, easy to read, and will leave you wanting to not put it down.

Donene doesn’t have room or space for pride or ego, but she isn’t afraid to feel either. You will find yourself saying, “Oh, I’ve been there” and “Wow, this woman was dedicated” throughout each page. It will inspire you, provide you tools for success, and give you a swift reality kick right in the face.

The fact is, following your dreams is not easy. It’s not for the faint of heart and a person needs to make sure they have the necessary tools to overcome adversity.

Donene is a Certified Mental Performance Coach who takes athletes who are “Goal Setters” and transforms them into “Bold Goal Getters.” She helps them close the gap between where they are to where they want to be. She and her husband, Stan, reside in Glenrock Wyoming. She continues to compete in the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA).
