Because if you don't believe something is even possible, you'll never do anything, and when you fail to take action, what results do you think you are going to get?
Have you heard the Roger Bannister story? This is an amazing story about one of the most incredible athletes in history.
Roger Bannister was the first man to run a mile in under four minutes. Up until he did it in 1954, most people thought the four minute mark was impossible to break. They thought the human body couldn’t physically go that fast – that it would collapse under the pressure. You were crazy to even try.
Bannister was different. He believed it was possible to run a mile in under four minutes and set out to prove all the experts wrong. He kept improving and tweaking his training until eventually he realized his dream. That day came on May 6th, 1954. Roger Bannister made history by running a mile in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds.
He broke the world record. He had done what many believed was impossible.
Since that day, more than 20,000 athletes have run a mile in under four minutes!
Suddenly everyone was able to do it – proving an important lesson: everything becomes possible once you stop believing it’s impossible.
Something magical happens with belief. Your belief.
The moment you believe something is possible, you become more willing to take action.
