Why You Need to Believe You are Good Enough- Dr Stan Beecham
Jun 17th, 2015 by runnersconnect at 1:00 am

I have always been fascinated with the minds of runners. At one point in my life I even looked into becoming a sports psychologist. Today, I had the opportunity to ask those questions I have always wondered with a well known sports psychologist, who has studied distance runners in detail, and has come to some fascinating conclusions on why we act the way we do. You are going to learn so much in this interview, and it will make you change your whole outlook on life, especially if you want to be successful, and get the most out of your running goals.

My guest today is Dr. Stan Beecham

  • Why curiosity and openness could be the keys to success in your running and life
  • Why we need to get back to being human beings instead of human doings
  • Why you need to let go of some of the control in your life, and how this will change your perspective on injuries to view them as a gift
