My mother always told me to hold my shoulders up.
4. John Pennel the World Record holder in the pole vault was watching me long jump. He came over and told me that I should be jumping three feet farther. Within in the next four or five jumps, John had me hitting right at 23'. Did he give me a magic pill? No, John had the mind of a world champion. He had no limits. That is exactly what he did to me. He took my mind and released all the limitations.
