Did you know that just over 50 years ago the medical profession claimed it was physically impossible for a man to run a mile under four minutes?
Any man to undertake such a foolish attempt would certainly die as the heart and lungs would explode!
One man dared to believe.
25 year old Roger Bannister believed this was achievable.
He endured thousands of monotonous laps around the same university track shaping his body and mind. He believed in himself.
On May 6 1954, at Oxford University after a history of failed attempts, Roger Bannister achieved his dream in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds.
46 days later the record was broken by John Landy and by the end of 1957, by a further 16 who believed…
Considering this feat had been rendered impossible, how could this be possible…?
Many of life’s barriers & obstacles come from within. We create limiting beliefs for ourselves as to what we can and cannot achieve.
Once the biggest barrier of believing in ourselves is broken, the limits are endless.
I was recently called in by a client who wanted to increase sales. Together we produced a marketing strategy that would produce 60 warm leads per month. My client then told me his sales team conversion rate was 21% which give him 12-13 new clients per month.
I asked him how it would be if his sales team were to believe they could convert 30% of warm leads thus giving them 20 new clients per month. My client agreed to a coaching session that would look at the empowering and disempowering beliefs of his team. This would entail identifying the beliefs that were holding them back and replacing them with positive beliefs.
Over the next six weeks sales increased by nearly 37%. The product and the price remained the same the only thing that had changed was the belief and expectations of the sales people. It has been shown time and time again, whatever you belief is true and you will find evidence to support your belief.
What would you achieve if you believed in yourself like Roger Banister did?
