(Motivational Video) – Inspiring Speech by Admiral William H. McRaven


Listen to this inspiring speech from US Navy admiral and UT, Austin alumnus William H. McRaven. McRaven was a former commander of the US Special operations Command that led the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. In his speech McRaven stresses the importance of little things like making your bed every morning. Seemingly pointless things can sometimes be a building block for a foundation of discipline and success.

McRaven also stresses how important it is to take on obstacles headfirst, and to realize that it is OK to fail. We always stress how important it is to look at failure as another opportunity to learn and move forward in your life. McRaven talks about the hardships of SEAL training. You don’t have to be a SEAL to learn some of the critical life lessons contained in McRavens moving speech.

While these lessons were learned during my time in the military, I can assure you that it matters not whether you ever served a day in uniform, it matters not your gender, your ethnic or religious background, your orientation, or your social status.

I am a professional software developer by trade. I was not a particular inquisitive student in high school and got by with doing the minimum required most of the time, however upon entering the workforce and flipping burgers for several years. I quickly realized that in order to find happiness in life I needed to learn & master the subjects I am interested in. Using the internet and my aspiring mind I was able to teach myself software development and reach my career goals. I have also struggled with extreme shyness and social anxiety for most of my adult life. Although never cured, I learned to improve my self-confidence, reduce my anxiety & reach my goals and I now dedicate a large part of my life to teaching others how they can overcome mental obstacles that can sabotage you from reaching your goals in life.
