Roger Bannister – First Sub 4 minute mile in 1954!

This historic event took place on 6 May, 1954 during a meet between British AAA and Oxford University at Iffley Road Track in Oxford. It was watched by about 3,000 spectators. With winds up to 25 miles per hour (40 km/h) prior to the event, Bannister had said twice that he favored not running, to conserve his energy and efforts to break the 4-minute barrier; he would try again at another meet.

However, the winds dropped just before the race was scheduled to begin, and Bannister did run. Two other runners, Brasher and Chataway, provided pacing while completing the race. Both went on to establish their own track careers. The race[1] was broadcast live by BBC Radio and commented on by Harold Abrahams, of Chariots of Fire fame.

Roger Bannister Now

Roger Bannister Then

Roger Bannister set a goal of running a mile under four minutes.  He believed he could do it….even though no one had ever accomplished it before.  Because he convinced himself, and was faithful in his training, he achieved his goal.  After he did it, many others followed because it was all of the sudden realized to be possible!

This guy has always amazed me……

I grew up watching him defy the odds.

I’ll tell ya folks, we better either
get busy living or get busy dieing….because
there is no in between.

And yes, there is a choice….everyday.

I have decided to be a victor. And I am
mighty thankful to be associated with you.

People would not hire him as a head coach
because they said that he is not an X’s and O’s guy.

Give him a couple of years, and I GUARANTEE you —

Without A Doubt – He will have them in the Super Bowl.

End of Story.

For him, there is no other alternative.

That inspires me.

He was not supposed to be big enough to play Professional Football but he is now a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest middle linebackers ever to play for my Chicago Bears. Thank you Mike Singletary for setting the pace for the rest of us and thank you for giving the glory to God!

Zig Ziglar – Setting Goals

Zig Ziglar speaks on the power of setting goals.

“Goals do not care who has them . . . ”

This is to say, they do not discriminate, but rather they
drive actual behavioral production.
