Till 1953, many experts thought that running a mile in four minutes was physically impossible. So, no athlete ever tried to run that fast. But Britain’s roger Bannister had internal conditioning that kept him from tripping over the so called evidence. He was determined to see for himself. In 1954, with a time of 3.59 minute. Bannister broke more than a world record. He broke the mind sets conditioned with self limiting attitudes. Now athletes record sub four minute miles regularly.
The Law of Motion: Objects in motion stay in motion. Therefore, once we became effective, empowered, and confident, there is no going back the way we were. Just as once a mind is stretched by a thought, it cannot return to its original size.

Life goes by so fast and with such ferocity that if you don’t have fun every single day your life is wasted like dust in the wind. Five minutes a day dedicated to having fun can give life the spice it needs.
Children define their lives by the amount of fun they have. As we mature, we lose touch with the Fun. We forget what it’s like to be kids, and as a result, we harden to life’s wonders. Without fun, you cannot be motivated. Without fun, you cannot get inspired. Without fun, you cannot perform at your highest level of excellence.
So have a ball, have a bat, have a Frisbee for what it’s worth. But have fun. Live longer. Live happier and with more meaning. The Fun isn’t a novelty or luxury. It’s a necessity. Now go have some Fun!

5. An old mantra of ancient martial arts and Zen Masters is, “Aim for the back of the head and settle for the nose.” Set your standards, your expectations, and demands placed upon yourself higher than you believe you can reasonably achieve.
