The Death Of A Man. The Birth Of An Important Idea

Today the great Roger Bannister died.

Bannister was the guy who in 1954 achieved what virtually the entire word said was impossible.

He ran a mile in under 4 minutes.

The running experts said it couldn’t be done.

The physiology experts said a human could not move at that speed for that long.

But Roger Bannister believed it was more than possible, he believed that he himself would do it.

And when, on 6 May 1954 he did achieve the impossible, something amazing happened.

Only 46 days later, John Landy also did it.

Then the following year 2 people achieved the ‘impossible’

And Roger Bannister became the symbol of a very important idea.

Your expectation hugely affects your results.

Or as Henry Ford put it, “If you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.”

So take a moment to think of Roger Bannister today.

And how that idea could apply currently in your own life.

You can do it.
