Winning happens in your mind! –Story I

    There was a time when it was believed that human cannot run a mile with in four minutes time frame. All the sports experts, physiotherapists and athletes believed our human body is not capable of doing it.  

   The only athlete who held the record timing of 4 minutes and 1.4 Seconds was Gunder Haegg from Sweden. He placed that record in 1945 and it was unbroken for almost 9 years until Roger Bannister came with a bang. Roger broke Gunder’s record by running the mile in 3 minutes and 59.4 Seconds. He accomplished something considered as impossible. He stunned the world by breaking the four minute barrier.

   Once Roger broke that record and 4 minute barrier, there were more than 15 athletes ran the mile with in 4 minute mark with in next three years. In fact Rogers’s record was broken by John Landy who did it in 3 minutes and 57.9 Seconds.

   How can they all do it immediately after Rogers’s feet? Why it took so long for before Roger to overcome the 4 minute barrier? The answer is “everything happens twice, once in your mind and then in reality”.

   Once you break all your mental barriers, you can emerge as the winner who can do the impossible. You can read Impossible as I’M Possible!

Happy winning! Cheers!
