I was just reading something that was referring to discovering the power of belief and it made me really think. Basically, the story was about the four minute mile. You see, for more than a hundred years, runners tried to break the four-minute mile. It was considered the “Holy Grail” of track and field. Doctors wrote articles and published research in medical journals about how it is physically impossible to run a mile in less than four minutes.
Well, that changed in 1954, when a British medical student named Roger Bannister ran the mile in 3:59.4. It made headlines around the world and you know what happened next. The four minute mile was broken the next month and then again and again. More than 700 people have broken the four minute barrier.
You know why? Because people finally believed it could be done. It is extremely amazing how the mind works. If today you are struggling in some fashion of your life and you just think this is how it is always going to be remember Roger Bannister. He believed it could be done. Start believing and things will happen.
