Riveting: Life Lessons From Navy SEAL
"If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed."
Some words or advice from Navy Admiral William H. McRaven. McRaven is former commander of SEAL Team 3 and current commander of the US Special Operations Command — the man who led the mission to get Osama bin Laden. On May 17, he gave the commencement address for the University of Texas at Austin, His Alma Mater. in the speech, he conveyed to the graduate class some simple advice about living a better life.
In the address, Adm McRaven states:
"The average American will meet 10,000 people in their lifetime.That's a lot of folks. But if every one of you changed the lives of just 10 people, and each one of those folks changed the lives of another 10 people—just 10—then in five generations, 125 years, the class of 2014 will have changed the lives of 800 million people.
Eight-hundred million people—think of it: over twice the population of the United States. Go one more generation and you can change the entire population of the world—eight billion people. If you think it's hard to change the lives of 10 people, change their lives forever, you're wrong."
Take twenty minutes and listen to this commencement address delivered to the graduates, and their parents. You won't soon forget the life lessons
