Break Your Own Barriers Like Roger Bannister A Legend.

The upcoming TICC (Tiyambuke International Christian Convention) dubbed The Footprints Of Legends is not only encouraging us to Celebrate the Legends. It is also a platform that was created by Apostle Sibiya the founder of Glory Ministries to encourage you to push beyond the limits and become a legend in you own right.

Breaking The 4 Minute Mile Barrier.
The experts said it could not be done. Just like your friends tell you 'It is impossible for you to be a millionaire.' According to Legend (stories told about the past), experts said for years that the human body was simply not capable of a running the 4-minute mile. It was not just dangerous but also it was impossible. This is true. Many people who see you trying to go for a career that is new to your family will tell you, it is impossible. I have come across many of my relatives who have no idea how I have built an online business in the dusty town of Chitungwiza. They are very skeptical and ask me funny questions. Questions that beg ignoring because if I listen to them, i might easily give up my online media journey.

About Breaking The Four Minute Mile Barrier.
Further legends hold that people had tried for over a thousand years to break the barrier, even tying bulls behind them to increase the incentive to do the impossible. They had failed to break the barrier. In the 1940’s, the mile record was pushed to 4:01, where it stood for nine years. Imagine, this barrier stood for more than nine years, as runners struggled with the idea that, just maybe, the experts had it right. Perhaps the human body had reached its limit.
How many people have you come across that tell you that you just cannot achieve greatness because you are in Chitungwiza or maybe no one in your family has done it before. When it comes to greatness follow your dreams and not people. They will come and give you a good enough reason for you to remain where you are: poor and broke. If you have a dream, go for it and do not wait for people's stamp of approval you are born to achieve greatness and you obviously do not need anyone's stamp of approval.

The Breakthrough
On May 6, 1954, Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute barrier, running the distance in 3:59.4. As part of his training, he relentlessly visualized the achievement in order to create a sense of certainty in his mind and body.

Footprint Of Legends
Now the greatest testimony is not only about how Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute mile barrier but the fact that barely a year after Bannister’s accomplishment, someone else ran a mile in under 4 minutes. Then some more runners did. Now, it is almost routine every man who runs a mile must now be able to runn a mile in under 4 minutes. Listen, as we speak, even strong high-schoolers today run 4-minute miles. Why! Because someone had the sense to believe that he can achieve an almost impossible feat and when he did it, he opened doors of achievement for others.

What Does This Mean For Us?
I do not know about you, but for me, a 4-minute mile is probably not in the cards. (5 minutes? Maybe one day.) That is not the point. The point is this: It took a sense of extreme certainty for Roger Bannister to do what was considered un-doable. He alone was able to create that certainty in himself without seeing any proof that it could be done. You too can have faith in your career and begin the walk of achieving what others feel is impossible.

Once Roger Bannister crashed through that barrier, the rest of the world saw that it was possible, and the previous record that had stood for nine years was broken routinely. I love this story.

When you become certain of something, when every part of your makeup believes it because you focus on it every single day, something “magical” happens. We have a system in our bodies called the reticular activating system (RAS) that helps our brains decide what information to focus on and what to delete. When you have a clearly-defined purpose, a mission, and when you live every moment in a state of certainty that you will achieve it, you influence what your RAS filters out and what lights it up. As a result, you pay special attention things that help you achieve what you’re after, things you otherwise would have never noticed.

I remember sitting on my Laptop in 2014 battling in my mind on whether I should follow animation or blogging as my main niche. Both areas are equally challenging and the temptation. The temptation for me to remain a Graphic designer was so overwhelming. Well I am really good at it and their is no need for me to pursue something else. Logic tried to make me stay in my comfort zone. Well almost a year letter I have built over 50 online campaigns and am still going strong, So on top of my already exhaustive resume I have easily added Wed Designer and Social Media Expert.

Because like Roger Bannister I decided to pursue my passion against all ODDS.
