Words of Wisdom (and Advice)!

Last week I received a book as a gift (thank you Dee!) that outlines the ten principles that Admiral William H. McRaven (U.S. Navy Retired) learned during his Navy SEAL training. These principles helped him overcome assorted challenges throughout his Navy career as well as his life.   Anyone can apply these principles to their lives to foster change and I would highly recommend this book to all.

The book: Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life . . . and Maybe the World

The principles:

  • start your day with a completed task (i.e., make your bed)
  • you can’t go it alone
  • only the size of your heart matters
  • life’s not fair, drive on
  • failure can make you stronger
  • you must dare greatly
  • stand up to the bullies
  • rise to the occasion
  • give people hope
  • never, ever quit
