The 4 Minute Mile

posted by skrakowski

Roger Bannister

They told him it couldn’t be done.

They had an ambulance waiting for him.

They did not expect him to make it, let alone break it.

The four minute mile was broken against every scientific odd, every human expectation. I wonder if when Roger Bannister  crossed the finish line and his legs were screaming and his heart was racing…. did he really experience physical exhaustion or was it the exhaustion of pressing past a lifetime of negative comments that it couldn’t be done that screamed through his body?

Were the legs limp from sheer exhaustion because it was true, that human limbs were not designed to do such feats? Or were they screaming with exhaustion because one man was breaking and making history in under 4 minutes?

His record released a greater record just a month later.

Human expectation controls the outcome of all of life’s happenings. In 1954 a medical student who was not poised to take the trophy, wasn’t primed and targeted as the athlete of choice, broke the record.

Please, do not sacrifice what God tells you to do on the altar of what mere men think is possible.

BREAK the 4 minute mile God is calling you to shatter!

With love,
Sandi Krakowski

    This is so inspiring! I feel motivated to do the very things that others tell me I can’t. People are always standing by waiting for you to fail, and the one thing that will shut them up for sure is succeeding.

    What an inspiring article. I too want to “break the 4 minute mile” in my own life. God has not called me to be ordinary, and I fight it with all I have inside of me.

    That is exactly what I will be doing this year. I feel that I am supposed to Eclipse my condition at 65 of that which I was at age 32!
    At 32 I won the Virginia State Championships in the “Sport of Physique”. That was 1980. It took me 3 years to do it drug-free. In 1985 I won the Natural-For-LIfe Pro World Bodybuilding Championships. I retired undefeated in drug-free competitions. But I have one more and that is to surpass or “Eclipse” my former condition. I totally believe I can do it, because I believe I am supposed to do it.

Some Competing With Everyone And Be Your Truest Self
Stop competing with everyone. When we do this we lessen the value God created in us. Ask God to show you how amazing He sees you. Competing is combative. It takes a lot of energy. When we spend our days competing with others, comparing and constantly trying to measure up, we become smaller.

Don't Fight Your Success
My energy is at full speed early in the morning. So it would be silly of me to write my book, articles, or anything that requires the best of me later in the day. The best use of my time is to go with my natural rhythm. Why do people try to push against their natural bent? Maybe it’s because
