According to the Marathon Handbook only about 0.17% of people worldwide have finished a marathon (i.e., the 26.2 mile distance).

The Marathon Handbook estimates only about 1.3 million people out of the world population of about 7.93 billion people on the earth have successfully finished a marathon.

Are you one of the 1.3 million who have successfully finished a marathon?  If so, you are in a very elite category.

It is also estimated that about 1% of all people who attempt to run a marathon race fail to successfully finish the race.

I am a runner. I have successfully completed marathons in Chicago (multiple times), New York, Los Angeles and other cities.

So I am one of those people who are this very elite category of 0.17% on the earth.

I have also have had bad races where I did not finish a marathon in Chicago, Milwaukee and other cities.

So I am also one of those people in the 1% failure category as well.

Even if you are not a runner and how no desire to run a marathon if you are, there are many situations, events and circumstances in your life which are hard, take a lot of time and include a large risk of failure to successfully finish.

What can you do to be one of the small percentage of people who overcome physical and psychological challenges and risk failure to successfully complete an important activity?

Use the saying “I, CAN.”

Using the saying “I, CAN” allows you to successfully complete a challenging, risky activity and create a positive impact in your life.

CAN. How about you?
