This one was given by Admiral William McRaven, member of the University of Texas Class of '77. You probably don't know his name, but you certainly know his work. He is was the Commander of the Seal Team Six. You know, that group of brave men who took out Osama bin Laden. Yeah, that guy. Oh, I know President Obama wants us all to believe that he was the one who took out bin Laden, but, without guys like Admiral McRaven, UT Class of '77, well, I won't finish my thought. Anyway, listen to his commencement address. It's short, but packed with great life lessons that we all could use and one that should be remembered. Here are Admiral McRaven's 10 pointers for "changing the world". And, just to get you started, his first one...make your bed every day. It just gets better from there.
Lessons that we all could use. Life is hard and not fair, but you just have to keep moving forward and never ring that bell.
