You can do it! Scientists find urging yourself on in the second person is the key to sporting success

Dr James Hardy, one of the researchers, said: "It is possible that using a non-first person pronoun perspective helps performance because it allows the runner to adapt a thinking process that is more helpful for her/himself.

"That is, it promotes a more distanced perspective enabling the performer to stand back and "observe" what is going on; akin to being in the balcony looking down on the dance floor rather on the dance floor itself.

This in turn promotes clearer thinking, better choices, and enhanced performance."
