Special thanks to Mish for sharing this quote.  Have you ever felt that life moves this way, sometimes in huge spurts of achievement after a long period of dormancy?

I learned from a video on Jim Kwik’s Instagram feed that this is sometimes about limiting belief.   You may know the story of Roger Bannister, the first man on record to break the 4-minute mile.  It was 1954 and the 4-minute mile was considered the “Everest” of achievements for runners. It had never been broken.  After Bannister broke this record, many athletes began to do so.  Now the 4-minute mile is considered the standard for middle-distance runners.

This video from Athletics shows that wonderful moment in history when Roger Bannister pushed past the 4-minute barrier and opened the flood gates for other athletes.
