I have the pleasure of being joined by David White in this episode. David is a public speaker, national learning facilitator, consultant and performance coach. He has recently released a fascinating book called Superstitionism - The Psychology of Sport which looks at the role superstition plays for athletes in all sports the world over. And it’s this book we focus on during our discussion, specifically: superstition as a belief system; the impact of ‘lucky’ boots; why athletes have superstitions; the ‘actual truth’ vs the ‘awful truth’; luck vs chance and probability; self-talk; law of attraction and superstitions as a source of comfort.
