Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note:
Start your day with a task completed -- 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! -- The University of Texas commencement speech.
Summary, etc.:
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. He then explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves -- and the world -- for the better. Admiral McRaven's original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in life's darkest moments.
