William H. McRaven: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World

United States Navy admiral William H. McRaven delivers a powerful speech about the importance of doing the little things, getting out of your comfort zone, and facing your fears head on.

His book, “Make Your Bed” was based on this incredible graduation speech and it’s a New York Times Best Seller.

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.
