The doctors atrepparttar time said he would be lucky to live to 16. In other words, his time was limited.

And this was his secret. He knewrepparttar 143315 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 intorepparttar 143316 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 enjoyrepparttar 143317 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 intorepparttar 143318 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 makerepparttar 143319 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.
