It's been 6-7 months since I am trying to make stamina to run, but I can only run for 1 min and rest I walk. I force myself by my ankle hurts. What is the exercise I should do to make stamina? I been told by Nike people that I have wide foot. Don't know if that account for the pain in my ankle. How can I focus when I am on tredmill that I don't focus on time, because my mind also play with me when it sees 1 min is done.

Probably the best and easiest beginners running plan is Couch to 5k (or more commonly Couch25k).
Its a well tested plan for taking you from no running at all to running a continuous 5 kilometers (or about 3 mile). There are numerous official and unofficial apps for your phone that help you keep pace with the plan.
If you are looking at building running stamina, it is probably your best bet.

As for motivation, set goals. A good goal gives a specific action and a specific time frame.
