Set The Standard For Success – Breakthroughs Are Possible
Roger Bannister was the first man to ever run a mile in under 4 minutes. Well before he ever accomplished this feat, he openly proclaimed that he would do it. He set his mind on it. Roger Bannister was not the most fit or athletic person in the world. He simply knew that he wanted to run a mile in less than 4 minutes. And he did.
What’s incredible about Bannister’s accomplishment is that within nine months 36 other people ran a mile in under 4 minutes. In the last 5000 years of recorded history, no man had run a mile in under 4 minutes EVER. And then all of sudden nearly 40 people did jus that in less than a year.
That is the power of knowing what you want. Today, even some high school students have run a mile in under 4 minutes.
Before Bannister ran the mile in under 4 minutes many people said that a human being was incapable of running that fast. They said your heart would stop if you ran that fast. Maybe people had been saying that for thousands of years. Maybe that’s why no one ever ran a mile in under 4 minutes. But all it took was one man to say “I want it and I will do it.” That is the power of setting goals and committing to action.
The problem many of us face is we have notes on our desks that say things like, “I need to get diapers for Tommy after I pick up McDonald’s for dinner and go to the dry cleaner.”
We know how to take care of errands, but have we accomplished something great with our life?
Have we made a difference in the world?
Are we living up to our real potential?
Or are we just settling for an average life?
As Confucius said, “A man who shoots at nothing is sure to hit it.” Don’t let that be you.
All I’m saying is that I’d rather aim for trillionaire and settle for millionaire than aim for nothing and stay broke all my life. How about you?
