Bear Grylls says he's confident he can motivate others with the lessons he's learned - despite having some out-of-the-ordinary experiences.

The adventurer had a career in the Army's Special Forces before going on to make TV series like Born Survivor.

"I think what I've learnt about tackling and approaching life's problems and set-backs could help motivate anyone," Bear, who shares his experiences in new book A Survival Guide For Life, said.

He admitted: "I often feel I've let myself down and hold my head in my hands and think, 'God, why did I do that?', but that's sometimes the penalty of not living a safe life.

"But mistakes help you grow and I learn from them and endeavour not to repeat them."

He added: "I believe that the ultimate success in the game of life can never come from money amassed, power or status attained, or fame."

:: A Survival Guide For Life by Bear Grylls is published by Bantam Press, priced £18.99. Available now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
