Do you want to succeed in life? Do you aspire to change the world? Then you’ll have to hear what Admiral McRaven told the class of 2014 from University of Texas. Admiral McRaven last served as the US Special Operations Command and was credited for organising and overseeing the execution of Operation Neptune Spear, which was the raid that led to the death of Osama bin Laden. He’s seen some rather tough times. Drawing from his experience during Navy SEAL training, he gives ten pieces of amazing advice here:
“Start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up — if you do these things, then the next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today.”
Let’s all do our best to make this world a better place.
