In 1954, athlete Roger Bannister BROKE the infamous “4-minute mile…”
Up until that point, throughout human history, NO ONE could run a mile in less than 4 minutes!
That’s because the BELIEF back then, was that the human heart wasn’t able to sustain a sub-4-minute mile. People were convinced that it would explode in their chest, and that you would die.
But the interesting thing was – Bannister would actually VISUALISE himself crossing that FINISH LINE. And in his MIND, he would SEE the clock, which read 3:59.
He KNEW that it had to happen IN HERE, BEFORE it could happen OUT THERE!
BUT, the other REALLY interesting thing is what happened AFTER that:
Nobody could run a sub-4-minute mile; all of a sudden one person does it – and what happens over the next few years?
Hundreds of people start running a sub-4-minute mile!
And that wasn’t due to major advancements in shoe technology, training methods, or nutritional supplements!
WHERE was the change?
Well it was a change in their BELIEF!
All of a sudden, when one broke that record, everybody knew that it could be done! And those mental barriers – those mental restrictions – were released and shattered, and people started believing that they too could achieve those magical goals!
