'The vision comes from every citizen of this planet. My fame came from lending $27 to 42 people. You couldn't get smaller than that. And look at the effect it had. We can all do it - but we don't know.'
Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank and 2006 Nobel Peace Laureate, talking at the launch of the Elders, 2007.
Why don't we know? What holds us back in life? What stops us believing we can have the same effect on the world as Professor Yunus?
I am interested in this. Passionate about it. I believe we can all change the world - I believe it and I know it. Imagine if we were all set free to this way of thinking, what could be caused and how quickly it would happen. No limits, no boundaries, just endless, unpolluted possibility and potential - a world full of idealistic, child like leaders.
That is what I am up for. I am publicly declaring my stand as 'abundance for all' - abundant life on an abundant planet.
'It's our world and we are going to build it in the way we want it. And we will make it happen.' Yunus finished.
I am with him all the way.
