Have you seen this? “If you want to change the world…make your bed.” ~ Admiral William H McRaven

I came across this brilliant and inspiring video as I was looking through Facebook this morning. I immediately knew I had to share it with you.

I don’t need to say much here, because Admiral William H McRaven says it all. He is a Retiring Admiral and Navy Seal Trainer, who delivers one of the most inspiring speeches I’ve ever heard.

“If you want to change the world,

measure a person by the size of their heart,

not by the size of their flippers.”

~ William H McRaven

ENJOY!

About Tamara Hoerner (1161 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes β€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
