What’s The Matter?

Happy Friday!

Today is only the 6th day into the New Year and I am sure that there are many of you out there that have already thrown in the towel to get in better shape and eat properly. Why? Think that you can’t, not possible, financial problems, no transportation, no support system, spouse not interested in joining a program….well, all of these could be reasons but they are reasons that don’t belong to you. They belong to that hard-wire in your brain called “self-sabotage.” I felt obligated to write this post today and let you know that despite people and problems and issues that proper mindset destroys all. Let me say that again:

I want you to read the following story below and leave me a comment afterwards. Never let anything or anyone tell you what you can’t do…especially when you put your mind to it!

Doctors and scientists said it was impossible for a human to run a mile in less than 4 minutes.

Our bone structure was wrong.
We had inadequate lung power.
Our heart could not take the strain.

24 year old Roger Bannister wasn’t listening to that crap.
What happened on May 6, 1954 at Oxford University was viewed as simply another  attempt, in a history of foolish attempts, to achieve the impossible dream. Yet at the end of the race the stop-watches held a different view.
Roger did achieve what was thought to be impossible as he blazed across the finish line in a time of 3 minutes 59 seconds.
But that was not the most amazing part…

46 days later the record was broken again by a different runner.

And by the end of 1957, 16 more runners had achieved the “impossible”
Why did this happen?
Runners did not suddenly get “better” in those few short years.

Use this as motivation for everything in your life and I promise your outlook will change drastically.


Have an Awesome Weekend!
