Coach Sam Shares His Thoughts on the book, ‘Make Your Bed’

Picked this up yesterday and finished it today 🤗

Although 2020 has been crap for lots of reasons it’s officially the year in which I’ve read the most books

I’ve read between 35-40 books this year and this was another great one

Here is what this one is about

It’s based on Admiral William H. McRaven’s commencement speech for the graduating class from the University of Texas at Austin

In it, McRaven shares the ten lessons he learned from Navy SEAL training

These are:

  1. Start your day with a task completed
  2. You can’t go at it alone
  3. Only the size of your heart matters
  4. Life’s not fair—drive on!
  5. Failure can make you stronger
  6. You must dare greatly
  7. Stand up to the bullies
  8. Rise to the occasion
  9. Give people hope
  10. Never, ever quit!

There was stories for each of these on the book.

My favourite quote was:

“Life is a struggle and the potential for failure is ever present, but those who live in fear of failure, or hardship, or embarrassment will never achieve their potential. Without pushing your limits, without occasionally sliding down the rope headfirst, without daring greatly, you will never know what is truly possible in your life”

I enjoyed this one easy to read and short, sharp chapters

I’d give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️
