A legend leaves us with his legacy

This week, a legend passed away.  In 1954, Sir Roger Bannister did what doctors and scientists thought was the impossible and that would result in death if attempted. 

He ran a mile in less than 4 minutes. 

3 minutes, 59.4 seconds - to be exact.  

The breaking of the four minute mile was so significant, that it is hailed as one of the greatest athletic achievements. 

His impact reached far beyond the athletic realm.  It shattered a psychological barrier.  What once was impossible became standard.  In fact, after Bannister cracked the 4 minute mile, within three years, by the end of 1957, 16 other runners also broke the four minute mile.

Bannister's feat was proof of the power of the human body and spirit.  

It was the change in thinking that made the difference. Bannister believed that the record could be and should be broken. He was not limited by the record at the time.  Rather, he believed in what it could be.

Our beliefs and mindsets have the ability to limit or expand. Beliefs influence what you attempt or choose not to attempt. They determine what you pay attention to, how you take action, and how you deal with situations.

You can either do nothing or take action. However, first and foremost, you have to believe that the goal is attainable. 

If Roger Bannister accepted that the 4-minute mile was a physical limitation, he would never have tried to break it. Just like the runners that came before him, many of the barriers that hold us back today exist only in our minds.

If you accept that you're too old or too "broken" to have your own child, what is your likely outcome?  Not good.  

Instead, if you believe that your body has the ability to heal itself and do what it was built for - to have and grow a healthy baby, what then becomes of your possibilities?

Once your belief that you CAN have a baby into your 40s is in place, you then need a process to follow to achieve that goal.  That's what my Fertility Top10 is all about..http://zenfertility.com/top10
