The Secret to this Famous Singers Success


It seems the longer think we have, the longer we put off living the life we see in our heads.

You know what I'm talking about. The way you wish thingswere. Not that you want everything to change, just a fewareas of your life. And because you feel like you've got some time to kill, you'll get to it -

'Someday...'

I know where you think I'm going, and I also know you've heard it all before: seize the day, make the most of it, live life to its fullest, and on and on. But that's the problem. You've heard it all before. These ideas have lost their impact and have become cliche.

Luckily, that's not my thing.

I'm not about to tell you to live it up and then walk awaythinking all your problems will be solved.

No, the answer isn't a catchy saying. The real answers wakesomething up inside you. They hit a chord and make you think. That's what I want to give you today. A story thatwakes you up to the truth.

::HEARD OF THESE TUNES?::

Here's the problem: We think we have forever and a day todo the things we want to do.

Here's the truth: We only have a sliver of time to put together a great life and need to get moving today.

And here is today's solution: The story of Bobby Darin.

If you haven't heard of the man, I know you've heard hissongs. Among his many hits are Mack the Knife, Beyond the Sea, Dream Lover, and Splish Splash.

In the span of only seven years, Darin had several top tenhit songs, was nominated for four Grammy Awards (winning two), nominated for four Golden Globes (winning one), and even nominated for an Oscar.

In a word, he was driven.

So what was his secret?

::THE TRUTH THAT DRIVE HIM TO TRIUMPH::

All his life, Darin suffered from a heart condition that developed from a childhood illness.

The doctors at the time said he would be lucky to live to16. In other words, his time was limited.

And this was his secret. He knew the truth. He knew what weall have such a hard time accepting: Life is short.

You can't just say it, you can't just hear it. You have to know it, believe it, and feel it.

Because Darin knew his time was limited, he packed as much life as he could into the time he had. But he had an unfairadvantage. He knew, without a doubt, his time was limited.

There was no fooling himself, no putting it off. It was nowor never.

And only when you get that kind of feeling inside you willyou enjoy the same remarkable life. So how can you do it?

::'WHAT CAN I DO?'::

To begin, use Bobby Darin's story. Think about what you would do if you knew you only had a few more years to go for it.

Think about that right now. What could you do if you had that kind of mindset? Where would you be right now if you packed as much life as you could into the time you had?

Next, I want you to think of your own personal example ofthis idea. Because Bobby Darin isn't a major figure in yourlife, his story won't make as much of an impact as someoneor something much closer to you.

When you think about life being short, who or what comes tomind? Use that idea, focus on it. Let it drive you to makethe most of your time.

Life feels long and passes quickly. Don't be fooled. Getout there and start packing more life into what time you have.
