    This guys is a US military guy who kills thousands, tortures, uses children as human shields, dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan, etc. Why let a war criminal give a Commencement speech? Oh yeah, it's Texas- Bible Belt nutters!

    09:55 thats a very important advice. Life can be so unfair and a bitch and injustice but thats just how it is. U have to adapt and overcome no matter what and try see it as a positive thing instead of negative becoz we grow as a human when we are challened. We cant bend the natures unpredictable injustice, but we can adapt and try to overcome and make life and world a better place step by step. I can highly recommend the new book by Bear grylls where he also talks alot of life advices and motivational advices

    Brilliant speech! I really love it, but can someone tell me why the thumbnail of this video shows him holding his hand in the Satanic el diablo hand sign? it most definitely is NOT the hand sign of LOVE for the deaf. It scares the hell out of me.

    This really inspired me to try harder in life. I have a playlist of motivational videos on youtube and this is definitely one of them. It reminds me that life isn't as bad as it seems and that a change in perspective and a strong will is important.

    For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.
    2 Timothy 4:6‭-‬8

    The most important point to all of this is don't give up, The pain endured is far more severe after you give up full of disappointment and what if and what could of been. Don't be a pussy and keep moving forward, fast or slow.
