Do you know the Roger Bannister story?
He was the first marathon runner to run the 4 minute mile.
Everyone had said universally, that running a 4 minute mile was impossible. It’s humanly not possible. Not possible. It cannot be done and will never be done.
And then one day, in 1954, Roger Bannister finally cracks the 4 minute mile.
And then, everything changed.
In the next 12 months, something like a dozen people did it. Everyone had been limited by what they thought was possible.
We limit ourselves in what we can do based on where we’re at.
Your limitations aren’t what resources you do or do not have. Your limitations are your thinking of what is actually possible based on what you’ve been doing right now.
We can get stuck in our 4 minute mile. It’s impossible, it’s impossible…
I promise you, it’s not.
The only thing that’s preventing you from producing more is the way that you’re thinking right now.
We all want more resources but more resources aren’t going to make you individually better.
What makes you individually better, is your commitment to say, ‘Ok, how do I break my 4 minute mile?
What is my 4 minute mile?’
