We are giver-uppers.
Before the battle begins, we have already surrendered.
Why? Because WE are not the ones who can fight it. THEY are.
WE are mere mortals.
We aspire to reach great heights but are unwilling to even buy the right shoes.
Marcus tells us that because we find something difficult doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
It is always impossible. Until it’s done.
These numbers made history.
In 1954, a 25-year-old British medical student made history with these numbers. Roger Bannister became the first man to run a mile in under 4 minutes.
3mins and 59.4 seconds to be precise.
Until he did it, no one believed it could be done. It was IMPOSSIBLE.
Roger Bannister did it, and it instantly became POSSIBLE.
We have it in us, but we lack self-belief.
Find something challenging that you think it’s not for you? Better someone else, right?
Well, now’s your chance. Roll up your sleeves, and make a start. Take a small first step towards it. A micro-goal.
Believe in the possibility of making it possible.
