Bear Grylls: 'I've made mistakes'

Bear Grylls believes he can motivate others

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.

When in doubt, talk to a trusted friend. They'll give you an honest assessment of this bond. A relative may ask to come to their rescue. Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
