Make Your Bed

Author: McRaven, H. William

Description: ‘If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.’ 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. 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, honour, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple and universal wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in life's darkest moments. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of a book that has already achieved a New York Times #1 spot and has been described by the Wall Street Journal as ‘a book to inspire your children and grandchildren to become everything that they can.’ William H. Mcraven, a retired US Navy general, shares his 10 principles to leading a more fulfilling life and it all starts by doing something simple, like making your bed, perfectly. This could become a timeless companion with great backlist potential. It’s optimistic, practical and inspiring.
