There is a book "H is for Hawk" by Helen Macdonald that describes how she took up falconry after a difficult time in her life. Having to concentrate on training the bird intensively freed her mind from her past troubles. That would be an example of someone turning their life round through mastering falconry. Maybe the phrase you quote is from a review of that book.
