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 things were. Not that you want everything to change, just a few areas of your life. And because you feel like you've got some time to kill, you'll get to it -
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 away thinking all your problems will be solved.
No, the answer isn't a catchy saying. The real answers wake something up inside you. They hit a chord and make you think. That's what I want to give you today. A story that wakes you up to the truth.
::HEARD OF THESE TUNES?::
Here's the problem: We think we have forever and a day to do 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 his songs. 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 ten hit 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 to 16. In other words, his time was limited.
And this was his secret. He knew the truth. He knew what we all 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 unfair advantage. He knew, without a doubt, his time was limited.
There was no fooling himself, no putting it off. It was now or never.
And only when you get that kind of feeling inside you will you 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 of this idea. Because Bobby Darin isn't a major figure in your life, his story won't make as much of an impact as someone or something much closer to you.
When you think about life being short, who or what comes to mind? Use that idea, focus on it. Let it drive you to make the most of your time.
Life feels long and passes quickly. Don't be fooled. Get out there and start packing more life into what time you have.

-Lack of a specific purpose in life. You can not hope to succeed in any field of your life if you don't have a central purpose. If you don't have a definite goal in your life then you will jump from one activity to another with no success. Almost 97% of people think and act this way. That's why successful people, who have a clear goal in their life, are very few.

Self-Motivation for Trainers
THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SELF-MOTIVATION FOR TRAINERS: Lack of self-motivation is an unfortunate side effect of our accelerated times. Many people today are cynical and disillusioned or feel that to appear sophisticated, they must become so. They find it difficult to muster a feeling of energetic conviction toward any subject. In training, however, it is crucial to success to possess self-motivation when making presentations. Knowing this, however does not do much for the trainer who lacks inner direction. Achieving a full understanding of the anatomy of self-motivation and mastering ways of obtaining it can lead to vast improvement in training presentations.

Five Ways to Expand Your Comfort Zone
Expanding your comfort zone isn't quite the same as building self-confidence. However, the two do fit together rather nicely. The one begets the other. So many people feel stuck in a rut... bored from a routine that is safe and comfortable but not very exciting. Fear of falling flat on your face or of looking foolish stops you from reaching out beyond that cozy little life you've created for yourself. If your goal is to expand your comfort zone, then you must think positive while doing these. Remember that nothing really bad can happen to you if you are smart in how you go about trying new things. It's all just new adventures. Become like a curious child and have some fun.
