In 1954, a barrier was shattered…
Giving rise to a principle that’s subtly influenced the world of sports, music, and business.
It all has to do with an unexpected event, which at the time was believed to be impossible.
And even though it happened nearly 70 years ago…
I believe it’s one of the main reasons I have so many millionaire students.

What Happened On May 6, 1954?
Before that date, no one had ever run a mile in under four minutes…
To put that in perspective, the modern Olympic Games began in 1896…
But the mile run dates back even longer than that.
And during all that time, no one had ever run a mile in under four minutes…until Roger Banister did.
But what happens next is pretty wild.
You see, Bannister didn’t get to hold the record for that long.
In fact, it lasted just 46 days.
But Roger’s feat will always be remembered
Moreover, The Bannister Effect.
The Bannister Effect
The Bannister Effect occurs when a psychological barrier is broken.
Once other runners believed a sub-four-minute mile was possible…more and more runners started to achieve the goal.
So you might be thinking cool…but what does this have to do with me and trading?
You see, when you first get into trading, you’re likely to get crap from your friends and family.
You’ll hear things like most people who get into trading lose everything…and that the odds of success are low.
And while there’s some truth to that…
I’ve managed to do the impossible myself.
What Do You Believe?
I didn’t have a mentor when I started trading.
I had to learn everything by trial and error.
But my students have a significant advantage over most, in my opinion.
Because they not only get to learn from me but from the countless others, who have succeeded in taking my program.
If you surround yourself with winning traders…there’s a good chance some of that might rub off on you.
There’s an even better chance if you sit down, study hard, and do the work.
My Challenge Students don’t just hear from me…
They hear it from other millionaire traders who once wondered if they would make it.
However, if you surround yourself with negativity, you’ll start to believe that success in trading is impossible.
Trading is challenging…having people around who make it harder won’t help you reach your goals.
In 1954, when that barrier was broken…
It wasn’t just about a mile run in under four minutes.
It set the stage for something bigger.
Think about it.
When someone tells you something’s impossible, doesn’t it linger in your mind? That’s how it was with trading for a long time.
People used to laugh at the idea of becoming a millionaire through trading. They still do. But what if I told you that the same principle that led to the breaking of the four-minute mile has been at the heart of my success and that of my students?
The thing is, once you see others do it, once you’re surrounded by success, the ‘impossible’ suddenly doesn’t seem so far-fetched. It becomes achievable, just like that mile. The same goes for trading.
The success of my millionaire students isn’t a fluke.
It’s a testament to the power of belief, persistence, and the right environment. You might call it a mindset, but it’s more than that.
It’s a blueprint for success. It’s proof that with the right approach, the ‘impossible’ can become your new normal.
There are two ways I can help right away.
