Can You Achieve the Unachievable?

Do you think that you are capable of achieving the unachievable?

How will you know till you try?

Throughout history people have realized things that others thought were unachievable.

It takes a total disregard for the Status Quo to achieve the unachievable.

You must not believe in the limitations that you or anyone else has placed on you. You have no idea of ​​what you are truly capable of until you attempt to achieve the unachievable.

For years people were adamant that the running of a sub four minute mile was impossible.

They had all sorts of theories about what would happen to the human body if it was to run at the required speed to run a mile in under four minutes.

My personal favorite theory was that the human body would somehow spontaneously combust.

Everyone thought that it was impossible for someone to run a sub four minute mile, except for a certain young English fellow by the name of Roger Bannister.

He was determined to achieve the unachievable, when they told him it could not be done just carried on training regardless, he paid no heed to the naysayers and pessimists.

On the 6 May 1954 on a windy Thursday Roger Bannister achieved the unachievable, he ran a mile in 3min 59.4sec.

The unachievable record managed to stay unbroken for a mere 46 days until Bannisters great Australian rival John Landy achieved the unachievable and ran a mile in 3min 58sec.

Since then the record has been broken numerous times and it now stands at 3min 43sec.

It just goes to prove that you have no idea of ​​what you are capable of achieving until you achieve the unachievable.

You need to aim beyond what you think you are capable of.

Set your sights on an unachievable aim and then achieve it, you have no idea what you are capable of achieving until you achieve it.

Do not set limitations on yourself, the only limitations that you have are the limitations of your mind.

You are capable of so much more than you imagine, you are only limited by your imagination.

Nothing is impossible.

Nothing is unachievable.

Turn your vision of what you once thought was unachievable into the achievable.

Do not give in, do not give up and do not doubt yourself.

Always remember, "what ever the mind of a man can conceive and believe, it can achieve."
