Last week, I presented the inspirational story of the late Bahamian Pastor, International Motivational Speaker and Best Selling Author, Dr. Myles Munroe. I reported that Dr. Munroe, who was renowned internationally, visited over one hundred countries inspiring and motivating audiences with his “revelation-laced expository teachings”. Some persons who read the article informed me that they never heard about Dr. Munroe. I am happy that, in my humble way, I can help to promote his legacy though he has departed this life.

I am particularly intrigued by the following statement from Dr. Munroe which further engrafted in my heart that promotion comes from God and not mankind: “Failure of success is not race-related; it’s not socioeconomic-related; it is really predictable, based on principles that are laid down by God the Creator by which we are supposed to function. If we find them and obey them, success becomes inevitable.”
Dr. Munroe, despite his humble beginnings and ridicule by the naysayers, used adversity to his advantage by putting God first in life with the support of his spiritual parents. Dr. Munroe’s positive attitude and passion towards service for the betterment of humanity, his extraordinary success, his name and motivational quotes will forever live on. Below are some of my favourite quotes from Dr. Munroe that have helped to inspire me in ways I never imagined:

“Your job is your skill that they can fire you from at any time. But your work is your gift. No one can take that from you.”
“Solid character will reflect itself in consistent behavior, while poor character will seek to hide behind deceptive words and actions.”

“Friendship is not a gift, but is the result of hard work.”

“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.”

“God never demands anything that He does not provide for. Whatever God commands us to do, He equips us to do.”
“We are not to be so concerned about who approves or disapproves of us, but remember that God’s approval is what counts. Those whom God approves are approved indeed.”
“When experience is your best teacher, then progress is imprisoned.”

“We should not pursue money. We should pursue vision, we should pursue purpose; for ourselves, for our country, and for our communities.”

“Poor people talk about money all the time, rich people talk about things, wealthy people talk about ideas.”

“Ecclesiastes 3:1-2: ‘To everything there is a season, …A time for every purpose under heaven.’…If you’re having a bad time right now, it cannot last. If you cannot find a job right now – That is only a season. If your business is going in the wrong direction – it’s a seasonal slide.”
