Dec 17, 2005 – JohnFMurray.com – Feature – The famous philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once stated that each new truth in history passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. And third, it is accepted as self-evident.

For many today, the truth about sport psychology and high performance psychology has entered the third phase. The benefits of the profession are accepted as self-evident.Â

Throughout history, good new ideas gained momentum slowly. But once they got going they were impossible to stop.

If you’ve read this far you are obviously a smart person and interested in how high performance psychology can help and how this progressive field can be introduced to more people.

We’ve already heard from Schopenhauer. Now I’d love to hear your views about what can be done to let more people know about the benefits of legitimate sport psychology services in helping athletes perform better and live more fulfilling lives.
