The Miracle Mile : Roger Bannister Assembly. Personal bests happen when we take the same steps Roger Bannister took. First, we choose what we want to improve. It's a good idea for it to be something in which we think we have some potential. It's the right area of your life. It doesn't have to be a school subject. It can be a relationship, a hobby, your personality, your knowledge, a skill. Next, you need to put some effort into what you want to achieve. That's the hard part, isn't it? Yet, any ambition is surely worth it. No pain, no gain, as the saying goes. Finally, it's often good to involve others, for their support, advice and company. They'll also be there to congratulate you when you achieve your new personal best!
You may not know what you are best at yet. Indeed, if we are just good at one thing, we are not a well rounded individual. School gives you the opportunity to explore your skills and talents. But so to do opportunities out of school. Clubs and societies in your local communities, learning an instrument, writing a book, designing and building something.
