"The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win." — Roger Bannister
I have recently started to exercise, again, after a long time away from anything that would resemble exercise. That is unless you consider lifting a fork full of food to my mouth exercise.
There are times in my work life that things get painful and I have the tendency to just stop because it would be more painful to continue. You know something like picking up the phone and making a less than good news call to a client.
To overcome my shortcomings I need to push past my wanting to stop when things start to get painful and my body says to stop after one push-up. Or my fear of making that less than good news phone call.
Some of you may know who Roger Bannister is, so for those of you that don’t here is a little insight into who he is. He is an English Neurologist born in 1929. He is best known for being the first man to run a mile in less than four minutes. He did this in 1954 when he ran a mile in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. This was done after multiple attempts and people telling him that he cannot do it. Isn’t it amazing that once he broke the 4 minute mile how many others have come behind him and beat his record?
Today is my day to push past the pain!!
