Here is one of my favorite stories. The first person, to run the four-minute-mile, was a guy named Roger Bannister. In 1954, Roger ran a whole mile in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds, right under 4 minutes. For centuries, people thought it was impossible.
Roger Bannister’s record didn’t hold for long
Until Bannisters run, nobody had ever broken that. But all of a sudden, there were 23 other runners matched or beat that time, within that year.
What changed? Simple, once people realized, that it could be done, then they were far more willing and able to take the actions required to go out and do it. His record only lasted 46 days.
Roger Bannister, as part of his training, he relentlessly visualized the achievement in order to create a sense of certainty in his body and mind.
-The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful, is the man who will win. Roger Bannister.
