The human body is AMAZING! “Impossible” records are being broken all the time. Hicham El Guerrouj ran a mile in 3 minutes and 43 seconds. David Blane held his breath for over 17 minutes. No matter how ridiculous Olympic world records get, each year dozens of them are beaten by new athletes. Our bodies were so skillfully designed that we can accomplish nearly any task as long as we treat our bodies right. Everything is possible with training. Check out this video I came across.
You see these things and think to yourself, “Well I could never do that. That person is just good at it.” I think natural talent has a lot less to do with it than people believe. Not one of these people could do these things without training for hours, days, or even years. If you want to be able to do something, try it, and then try it again! Then keep working at it till you get it. You also have to go into it with the right mindset. Will power is half the battle. I don’t know about you, but I love adding to my personal repertoire of skills and abilities.
So what do you want to be able to do? Ride a unicycle? do a backflip? Swim the English Channel? You can do it. And I dare you to try.
