Make Your Bed Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World by William H. McRaven
نویسنده: William H. McRaven
If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.
On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university’s slogan, “What starts here changes the world,” he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.
Admiral McRaven’s original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in life’s darkest moments.

Admiral William McRaven’s University of Texas commencement address is the basis for this short text. While many of his narratives and examples relate to his time as a Navy Seal, anyone can relate to the lessons he shares. In fact, I’m trying to figure out how I can use these lessons not only in my own home but also in my classroom too. Cammie rated it: 5.0 from 5.0
