“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.”
― William H. McRaven

    I have made my bed everyday since watching this video eight years ago. Now I'm a millionaire and my world is a paradise. We will all reach that place but you gotta work your body to the absolute bone. Pure pain, suffering, and blood. Otherwise, it won't work. Eight years. 110 hours per week. 2 hours of sleep a night. Less than $2 for food per day. Pure hell. Because only in hell do you become hard and strong.. That's the only way to get it done.

    Didn't watch. Every speech should leave the audience speechless. By definition, the speaker speaks the speech. If the audience speaks, it's not really a speech. It's a debate, or perhaps a town hall meeting. If I go to see a speech, am I supposed to say something? No. Did the audience not applause? Is that how they are speechless? The response options for an audience are to clap or not. And if clapping, how loud and enthusiastic. Possibly booing, if they really hate it. What does 'speechless' mean in this context? Again, did not watch. Maybe someone post with a more descriptive, less click-bait title and I'll watch. Does he leave the audience speechless because he declares his allegience to Hitler? Is this like the scene from The Producers? What does speechless mean? Vague title makes me not want to watch.

    I put a sleeping bag over my made bed so I never had to make my bed as a kid. Ahhh creativity and finding easier solutions benefited me on that one. Great job though. Stay true to your morals and beliefs and even if all fails you did your best. Don't ever become the "enemy" you don't ever want those characteristics so don't repeat them. Be the better one even when ppl push you to far. They lose in the end bc they have no compassion or empathy and have ZERO respect.Dr human life. They learn....the hard way.

    Provided with the opportunity even the Make Believe sounds good. No mention of faith, truth or trust but the opposite of what the Commandments of what God in Heaven ask for. Who do you believe this guys stuff or that coming from the Divine. He needs to do a lot of soul searching to get beyond the brainwashing. I sure would not want to meet my maker in that state of mind. Oh well.

    Greetings, A message from the Gospel in The Christian Holy Bible. This is the message of forgiveness of sin through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. In first Corinthians, chapter 15 verses 1 to 4, the apostle Paul states: “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I have preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you, first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”. Romans chapter 3 verse 23, informs us, “For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God”. Ultimately it is a redeeming plan set by God, and for anybody who will faithfully trust in his Son will be saved. Romans chapter 6 verse 23, says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”. A sinner must recognise the despairing of her or his guilt before God in order for forgiveness to take effect. Every believer must understand in order to inherit the kingdom of God as sons of the king, the reality and foundational truth of sin must be acknowledged, for all who approach the throne of God for salvation. God promises us eternal life, for anybody who departs from sin through the saving faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus lived a perfect and sinless life which no person could live. Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross ultimately paid the debt we owe to God for our sin. Sin against an infinite God requires an infinite sacrifice; and Jesus died a substitutionary death for the sinner. In short, the works of Jesus paid the penalty of sin through an infinite sacrifice. Only the creator of life has the power to resurrect life after death and is essentially the proof of the power of God. Jesus Christ offers his salvation as a free gift and only be received by faith, despite any works or worthiness on our part. The scripture in Romans informs us, “If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved”. In conclusion, the resurrection of Christ is to bring everlasting life and salvation to anybody who follows him. The relationship between God and man can be restored through his saving faith.

    Love the speech, hate the cheezy music and artificial romanticism. There is a whole community of sensitive and autistic people who love and crave motivation like this that are not just irritated but TRIGGERED with this Hollywoodisation, "everything is gonna be ok" soundtrack and stock footage. The speech itself is what matters, and the ideas and questions it imposes on you. To the good people at MotivationHub - I respect the work you put in, but I feel you need to hear this point of view.

    Not gonna lie they have good points but the speech was shit at the best. A good thing he got the point across but as a speech it's funny how utterly sad and almost oversimplified to the point of stating the obvious. But yeah for me he did well getting the point and making it easy to understand but the whole speech was comedy-worthy garbage, so to speak. I don't mean to offend any marines or military personel. I'm just saying his speech could have been improved on

    What a lie, you CAN change the world alone, so many ppl have. You don’t need a posse for your existence to matter or change lives. You create what you believe, if you believe that you have meaning and can create change by stepping out alone and following your dreams and heart, then you can, if you believe you can’t, then you can’t. I don’t like this speech, it steals power from the individual and their ability to matter and create change without a group of others. It’s a lie, believe in yourself and move forward always, even if it’s alone!
