“If we do not imagine, it will not be done. If we imagine, someday it will happen!”

~ Muhammad Yunus

Muhammad Yunus is a Bangladeshi social entrepreneur, Nobel Peace Prize winner and founder of the Grameen Bank. He is a pioneer of giving small unsecured 'micro-finance' loans to some of the world’s most impoverished people, helping them lift themselves out of poverty. His idea was something that many people didn’t trust at first, but his huge success has proven what’s possible when you give someone an honest opportunity to better themselves and their lives.

Like many legends, Muhammad is a visionary who sees the best in people and their potential as human beings. He’s shown us how lives can be touched and improved thanks to our power to create, which requires an imagination to see what’s possible. Here he is sharing more about what life could be like if we stop making excuses and imagine a better world…

Learning From Legends...


Mohammed Yunus is asking us to stop making excuses and imagine what a better world would look like. What kind of world would you like to see in the future?

One without poverty perhaps? An end to child abuse and war?
