Today is graduation day at our local high school and thousands of students throughout Maryland. Speeches will delivered; diplomas will be handed out; and Instagram, Twitter and Facebook will explode with pictures.

In honor of all graduates, I am sharing the 2014 keynote address from my Alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin. In this inspiring video, U.S. Naval Admiral William H. McRaven shares lessons learned during basic SEAL training and how these lessons can be used to change the world.

And even if you are like me, and you graduated many years ago, it’s still worth the 20 minutes.

If you want to change the world, you must be your very best in the darkest moment. – Admiral McRaven
