Dearest Darling Friends,
Start the day by making your bed.
Is it surprising that a four-star admiral McRaven, known as the world’s deadliest man, begins his motivational talks by telling you the same thing that your mom probably told you when you were still just a little kid?
Start every day by making your bed, McRaven advised. If you do so, it will mean that the first thing you do in the morning is to accomplish something.
This then, sets the tone of positivity for the rest of the day. You feel ‘in-charge’. It encourages you to go beyond your moods and do what must be done. It guides you in being self-dependant and makes you want to prove your mettle. It helps you to accomplish more, and reinforces that, little things in life matter big time.
Simple yet incredible isn’t it? Does it make such a big impact? You bet it does!
“And, if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come back to your base to a bed that is made by you.” McRaven said, “At the end of the day, a well made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.”
Before I read about McRaven and his beliefs, in my mind’s eye I had a picture of Black Cat Commandos that suggested a super difficult life.
When I read about McRaven and his methods of training, I got super enthralled. If simple things like these can build an army, we will have the best army in the world.
With love, prayers and exceptional wishes,
Imagine, when we wake up, we are given only what we had thanked for.
