But I’m betting you might not know that he did it by telling himself the best-feeling, believable story possible.
That’s right – Roger Bannister was playing “Grow a Greater You”!
I’ll Bet Bugs Bunny Was Involved in This Somehow
How did Bannister tell himself the best-feeling, believable story possible?
By using rabbits to run his record-breaking mile.
I don’t know about you, but I think a bear would’ve been a far better choice. Wouldn’t a hungry bear chasing Bannister have made him run faster than a bunny?
Oh, right. It wasn’t that type of rabbit.
I Guess Roger Bannister Was Too Stupid to Listen to All the Experts
Actually, legend has it that someone tried to break the four-minute mile barrier before Bannister by tying himself to a bull. You see, prior to Bannister’s accomplishment, the track and field establishment had declared a sub-four-minute mile impossible. Doctors had decided that a human body simply couldn’t do it. And, up to that point, everyone was correct.
Yet Bannister decided that he was close enough to accomplishing this “impossible” feat that playing “Grow a Greater You” was the only ingredient missing.
Bannister decided to use pace runners, or rabbits, to clandestinely push him during his attempt. He asked fellow milers to run alongside him keeping the pace necessary to complete a mile in under four minutes. Bannister’s trick was accomplished by having his pace runners swap out with each other often enough so their combined pace never slowed.
Bannister May Have Been the First To Achieve Track and Field Fame Playing “Grow a Greater You”
Bannister, with a pace runner always in his peripheral vision, was able to nudge his subconscious into believing he was able to keep running. He told his subconscious brain the “truth”, as far as it knew, because here was another runner, right beside them, running at the same speed. So, Bannister’s subconscious brain reasoned, why couldn’t Bannister keep running at that speed too?
Having pace runners, who swapped out with each other upon tiring, “fool” his subconscious brain, made Bannister’s pace believable. And, since he was actually keeping a record-breaking speed, Bannister’s pace was also the best-feeling one possible.
It wouldn’t surprise me if, at the end of the race, Bannister’s subconscious brain said, “See! We knew it we could do it all along! Piece of cake!”
But He Definitely Wouldn’t Be the Last
Why do I think Bannister’s brain said that? Because a whole lot of other miler’s subconscious brains said just that, right after Bannister’s achievement. In fact, the new record only lasted forty-six days as John Landy ran it even faster less than two months later.
Now? Strong high school milers are able to break the four-minute mile barrier. It’s become not only possible, but commonplace.
All because Roger Bannister started playing “Grow a Greater You” in 1946 and nudged his subconscious brain into believing it possible. By showing himself the best-feeling, believable pace.
Your “Rabbit” is Ready and Waiting to Help You Manifest the “Impossible”
So I now ask you. What do you currently consider impossible?
A loving relationship with a soul mate? Financial abundance? Career satisfaction? A body you’ll keep the lights on to see?
What are you waiting for? “Grow a Greater You” teaches you how to use “rabbits”, just like Roger Bannister, to demolish your “four-minute mile.”
See you at the finish line!
