Year 2 – Week 42 – Paying tribute to Dr Myles Munro

Good morning and Welcome!

As you know this is a blog about my personal journey as a VA.  I can’t blog today about my own journey. Today I need to pay tribute to Dr Myles Munro who was tragically killed along with his wife in a plane accident.  Dr Munro was an author, motivational speaker and pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries.  There are loads of articles paying tribute to him and giving details of the accident but I have picked one for you to read:    http://www.forbes.com/sites/faraigundan/2014/11/10/dr-myles-munroe-on-leadership-vision-purpose-and-maximizing-your-potential/

I live in South Africa and we have a radio station called SAFM.  In the afternoons between 2 and 4 pm we have a programme where people that have achieved something remarkable or ordinary people leading extraordinary lives are interviewed.  I twice heard an interview with Dr Myles Munro.  He made such an impact on me.  One of the questions he was asked is “What are your favourite books?”  Dr Munro answered that he would love to re-read one of his own books.  He also said he would love to paint a painting that would hang in his own house.  One of the other things he said was that we needed to be free in our minds.  Dr Munro was such an inspiration to me and today I mourne his passing.  I celebrate his life.  Dr Munro has left a legacy behind.  He wrote 69 books and inspired millions of people right around the globe including my little corner of the world.

Here are a few of his quotes.  To me they are not just quotes but little sentences packed with awesomeness and can be life-changing.

“The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.”
― Myles Munroe

“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 color into his environment, or, like a chameleon, takes color from his environment.”
― Myles MunroeUnderstanding Your Potential

“When purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable”
― Myles MunroeUnderstanding the Purpose and Power of Woman

“One of the greatest tragedies in life is to watch potential die untapped.”
― Myles Munroe

“We are a sum total of what we have learned from all who have taught us, both great and small.”
― Myles MunroeUnderstanding Your Potential

R.I.P. and travel safely.

See you on line,
