The Power of the 4-Minute Mile

Have you heard the story about the 4-minute mile?

I’ll be honest with you, I hadn’t.

Not until I read the book Expert Secrets by Russell Brunson (good book btw?).

Anyways, everyone used to believe it was impossible to run a mile in under 4 minutes. ?

Experts said the human body was simply not capable of a 4-minute mile.

People had tried for over a thousand years to break the barrier.

In the 1940s, the mile record was pushed to 4:01.

But many had tried and failed to surpass it.

Until, on May 6, 1954, Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute barrier.

Running the distance in 3:59.4.

But the remarkable thing?

Barely after a year of breaking the record.

Someone else ran it in under 4 minutes as well.

Then some other runners did it too.

Now it’s almost routine.

So how can something that’s taken thousands of years to break…

…become so easily achievable now?

It’s all down to belief.

In this case, someone proved it could be done.

And it’s something we should all remember when chasing our goals.

If we don’t believe it’s possible.

We won’t achieve it.

For example, I didn’t believe I could;

Escape retail…

Run a successful coaching business…

Lose the stubborn weight I’d gained…


Write a book…

But I;

Saw everyone around me escaping retail, landing careers they loved…

Hired a coach that ran a successful coaching business…

Carb-cycled my way to less body fat using James Grage’s 60-day routine…


Took part in a challenge that helped me publish a book on Amazon in two weeks…

And all these things?

They gave me the belief that helped me break my own 4-minute miles.

And the thing I love most about this approach?

Once you break a 4-minute mile.

It becomes so much easier to achieve next time.

All the pain you went through the first time…


Now, when I want to lose weight? I just carb cycle, and it’s easy!

This year, I want to write another book, and it doesn’t scare me at all!

And that’s the power of the 4-minute mile.

What 4-minute mile are you going to break this year?
