Make Your Bed Summary
William H. McRaven author of Make Your Bed talks about how everyone can pursue their unique goals, the world is more significant than you think, and still, you can do anything that you want, you have to keep faith in yourself and move on with your life no matter what happens.
One of the key lessons I learned from William H. McRaven is to make the bed every day, no matter what happens, this will help to conquer the remaining day with ease.
I come to know William H. McRaven after watching his speech on YouTube. By the way, I didn’t find anything new because he added everything which he talked about in that YouTube video.
In short, if you have watched his speech on YouTube then you can skip the Make Your Bed book but if you want to know more about the navy shield training then you should read the book.
So here, I’m about to share with you some of the lessons which I have learned from his video as well as from the book.
Make Your Bed Everyday
In battle soldiers die, families grieve, and your days are long and filled with anxious moments.
Your search for something that can give you solace, that can motivate you to begin your day, that can be a sense of pride in an oftentimes ugly world.
But it is not just combating. It is daily life that needs this same sense of structure.

Nothing can replace the strength and comfort of one’s faith, but sometimes the simple act of making your bed can give you the lift you need to start your day and provide you the satisfaction to end it right.
If you want to change your life and maybe the world—start off by making your bed!
So When you wake up, just make your bad. This way, you have complained about your first task and this will motivate you to do more in the remaining day.
Find Someone To Help You Paddle
You can’t do everything on your own, you will need someone in your life, it could be your wife or even friends.
It takes a team of good people to get you to your destination in life.
You cannot paddle the boat alone. Find someone to share your life with. Make as many friends as possible, and never forget that your success depends on others.
Also, make friends that you trust the most, don’t just make thousands of friends who don’t care about you.
Marry a person who cares about you, don’t marry a person because she/he is good-looking because the looks will fade away after some time.
The only thing which will remain the same is the LOVE.
Keep Moving Forward
It is easy to blame your lot in life on some outside force, to stop trying because you believe fate is against you.
It is easy to think that where you were raised, how your parents treated you, or what school you went to is all that determines your future.
Sometimes no matter how hard you try, no matter how good you are, you still end up as a failure.
Don’t complain. Don’t blame it on your misfortune. Stand tall, look to the future, and drive on!
Your future is in your hands, if you’re doing something because of someone then it’s not their fault, it’s your fault because you’re giving that power to someone.
So have fun and do something that you feel living doing rather depending on someone.

Make Your Bad Review
Make Your Bed by William H. McRaven is not a must-read the book but its a quick read, so if you’re someone who has just started reading then this might be a good book to start with if you have read a few self-help books then you can skip this because it doesn’t teach you anything new.
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.
By the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed. Making your bed will also reinforce the fact that little things in life matter.
If you can’t do the little things right, you will never 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.
