There’s only one first, Roger was one of them

They always say, “It can’t be done.” Then somebody does it. 

Roger Banister defied the skeptics and ran a mile in just under four minutes, he died today at the age of 88

He was the first to do it and was followed by others inspired by his lead. He demonstrated an essential feature to achieve any breakthrough. You must first believe it is possible. 

When reflecting on his accomplishment he said, “I’d like to see it as a metaphor not only for sport but for life and seeking challenges.” 

I can barely walk these days let alone run a mile. But I can surely use Roger’s example as a metaphor for the challenges of my life. I hope you will use it in some small way for yours as well. 

That’s all for now.
