Dr. Myles Munroe

In some or other point in your life you have heard the great quote “the graveyard is the wealthiest place on earth” and we have recently learnt about the passing of the man who made that quote famous. Dr Myles Munroe died in a plane crash along with his wife and 7 others, Dr Myles died empty. He taught us that in life we need to give our all, live a purpose-full life and leave the earth knowing we deposited our everything into the advancement of this earth for the better. So I encourage you right now, if you have any innovation waiting to be unleashed for the world to see, now is the time to do it, do not be afraid of failure or embarrassment but rather be afraid of dying with that idea. Go out there and nunnovate. Here are 10 quotes from Dr Myles which I hope will inspire you to do more with your life.

You came into this world pregnant with unleashed potential.

Dr. Myles Munroe

1. If Your vision dies with you, you have failed

2. The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose

3. People generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens. Every person is either a creator of fact or a creature of circumstance. He either puts colour into his environment, or, like a chameleon, takes colour from his environment.

4. When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable

5. success is not a comparison of what we have done with what others have done.

6. A woman may be beautiful but have poor character. A man may be a business genius, making money left and right, but lack common courtesy, sensitivity, and compassion.

7. God did not create woman from man’s head, that he should command her, nor from his feet, that she should be his slave, but rather from his side, that she should be near his heart.

8. Secure Leaders Empower People

9. You came into this world pregnant with unlimited potential

10. A salary is someone else’s estimation of what you are worth

Dr Munroe was not a huge fan of the working class because he believed in entrepreneurship and innovation as a driver to growing economies and stronger markets. As he said in number 10, a salary is someone’s else’s estimation of what you worth, go on and rate yourself on what you are worth and make it happen.
