Nearly one year ago, I intended to post this speech by Gen. Jim “Mad Dog” Mattis.
But in the stress and worry of closing our business and trying to find employment, I somehow saved the link as a “draft blog post” and never finished writing it.
I crossed its path today and re-reading one year later, the speech touched me as strongly — or stronger — than it did when I first read it.
And even if you’re not a Marine, you can learn some serious lessons from this speech. ESPECIALLY in regards to humility.
Without further delay, here’s the speech: Gen. “Mad Dog” Mattis just gave what may be the most motivating speech of all time.
Keep the faith,
