If You Want to Change the World, Start Off by Making Your Bed – William McRaven, US Navy Admiral

Never Underestimate the Importance Little Things have

Meet William McCraven. He’s an US Navy Admiral giving a speech about how the little things, can add up to the big things, lasting for generations.

“The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”

Matthew 13 31-32

Watch the video below and think about what little things you do every day, and things/actions/ you can be doing for our Lord. A small gesture, how you interact with people regardless of who they are, caring for animals, the environment, other people… the possibilities are endless.

“Making your bed will 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.” US Navy Admiral William McRaven

How the Lord helped me one little thing at a time

For years I believed and understood the power of little things. Our Lord did little things for me and to me, and made a big difference in my life.

With each little thing, I changed, learned, and grew.

With each little thing, I no longer felt like an outsider that didn’t fit in or belong.

With each little thing, HE showed me that I belong to him, and loves me just the way I am.

He made me this way for a reason. Now, I am strong and confident. I beat to the rhythm to a different drum and bravely show the world who I truly am.
