if you want to change the world start
off by making your bed if you make your
bed every morning you will have
accomplished the first task of the day
it will give you a small sense of pride
and it will encourage you to do another
task and another and another and by the
end of the day that one task completed
will have turned into mini task
completed making your bed will also
reinforce the fact that the little
things in life matter if you can't do
the little things right you'll never be
able to do the big things right and if
by chance you have a miserable day you
will come home to a bed that is made
that you made and a made bed gives you
encouragement that tomorrow will be
better to pass SEAL training there a
series of long swims that must be
completed one is the night swim before
the swim the instructors joyfully brief
the students on all the species of
sharks that inhabit the waters off San
Clemente they assure you however that no
student has ever been eaten by a shark
at least not that they can remember but
you are also taught that if a shark
begins to circle your position stand
your ground do not swim away
do not act afraid and if the shark
hungry for a midnight snack darts
towards you then summons up all your
strength and punch him in the snout and
he will turn and swim away there are a
lot of sharks in the world
if you hope to complete the swim you
will have to deal with them so if you
want to change the world don't back down
from the Sharks over a few weeks of
difficult training my seal class which
started with a hundred fifty men was
down to just 42
there are now six boat crews of seven
men each I was in the boat with the tall
guys but the best boat crew we had was
made up of little guys the Munchkin crew
we called him no one was over five foot
five the Munchkin boat crew had one
American Indian one African American one
polish American one Greek American one
Italian American and two tough kids from
the Midwest they out paddled out ran and
out swam all the other boat crews the
big men and the other boat crews will
always make good-natured fun of the tiny
little flippers the munchkins put on
their tiny little feet prior to every
swim but somehow these little guys from
every corner of the nation in the world
always have the last laugh sewing faster
than everyone and reaching the shore
long before the rest of us SEAL training
was a great equalizer nothing mattered
but your will to succeed not your color
and not your ethnic background not your
education not your social status if you
want to change the world measure a
person by the size of their heart not by
the size of their flippers
the ninth week of training is referred
to as hell week it is six days of no
sleep constant physical and mental
harassment and one special day at the
mud flats the mud flats are an area
between San Diego and Tijuana where the
rough water runs off and creates the
Tijuana sloughs a swampy patch of
terrain where the mud will engulf you it
is on Wednesday of hell week but your
paddle down in the mud flats and spend
the next 15 hours trying to survive this
freezing cold the howling wind and the
incessant pressure to quit from the
instructors as the Sun began to set that
Wednesday evening my training class
having committed some egregious
infraction of the rules was ordered into
the mud the mud consumed each man till
there was nothing visible but our heads
the instructors told us we could leave
the mud if only five men would quit only
5 mins just five men and we could get
out of the oppressive cold looking
around the mud flat it was apparent that
some students were about to give up it
was still over eight hours till the Sun
came up eight more hours of
bone-chilling cold
chattering teeth and shivering moans of
the trainees were so loud it was hard to
hear anything and then one voice began
to echo through the night one voice
raised in song the song was terribly out
of tune but sung with great enthusiasm
one voice became two and two became
three and before long everyone in the
class was singing the instructors
threatened us with more time in the mud
if we kept up the singing but the
singing persisted and somehow the mud
seemed a little warmer and the wind a
little tamer and the dawn not so far
away if I have learned anything in my
time traveling the world it is the power
of hope the power of one person the
Washington a Lincoln King Mandela and
even a young girl from Pakistan Malala
one person can change the world by
giving people hope so if you want to
change the world start each day with a
task completed find someone to help you
through life respect everyone know the
life is not fair that you will fail
often but if you take some risks step up
on the time through the toughest faced
down the bullies lift up the downtrodden
and never ever give up if you do these
things the next generation and the
generations that follow will
in a world far better than the one we
have today and what started here will
indeed have changed the world for the
better
