Quest 5: Failure Makes You Stronger Copy

Failure Makes You Stronger with Admiral William H. McRaven

You’ll never know what you’re capable of if you quit.


In Make Your Bed:  Little Things That Can Change Your Life…and Maybe the World, Admiral William H. McRaven (Ret.) disputes Godin’s claim that there is a time to quit, and with good reason.  In battle, perseverance can mean the difference between life and death.  Although most of us will never have to face the perils of war, McRaven’s insights hold universal truths about mental toughness that we can all learn from.

To learn more, play Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? as/after you’ve watched Admiral McRaven’s University of Texas commencement speech.
