The So-Called Four-Minute “Barrier”


What you think & believe about yourself will manifest in your reality!!!

If this picture isn’t familiar to you, let me briefly share…this is the historic story of Roger Bannister.  Back in the 1940’s & 1950’s, doctors & scientists conclusively agreed that it was impossible for a human being to run a mile under four minutes.  They believed, scientifically, that the human heart would explode & the nervous system would go haywire.  They had they entire world convinced, through science, that running a mile under four minutes was impossible!!!

Along comes Roger Bannister.  He did NOT believe that.  He chose to believe in himself AND his abilities & on May 6th, 1954, Roger broke the barrier by running the mile in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds.  The best part, his record only lasted 46 days as someone else beat him.  Over the next year, dozens of athletes also broke the four minute “barrier” & over the years, many hundreds, if not thousands have done the same.

So, it is obvious as W. Clement Stone states “Whatever the Mind Can Conceive & Believe, It CAN Achieve.”  BELIEF is everything guys.  Believe in yourself.  Believe in your abilities.  Believe that you can do what it is you set out to do.  Do NOT listen to the opinions of “they,” do NOT let negative influence you.  You can do anything you set your mind to.  BELIEVE & take action on your beliefs & start to see how life bends in your favor.
