Muhammad Yunus's definition of freedom.

Portrait of Muhammad Yunus from Bangladesh, Dhaka.

Definition and personal details of Muhammad Yunus.

To me, freedom means being responsible to oneself, to society, and to the planet. Freedom is to me opportunity. It is the opportunity to know one’s own power, one’s own potential. It is the opportunity to unleash all the possibilities that a human being is born with. It is the opportunity to unwrap the gift that we all carry within ourselves. Freedom is the opportunity to think BIG, to think different, to go beyond what is already known, do things beyond what is already done, to create new frontiers. Freedom is being at peace with oneself, knowing that I have done or am doing what I wanted to. Nothing stopped me.
