What is grit? Do you have it? Can you get it?
"Every child needs to encounter frustration and failure to learn to step back, reassess, and TRY AGAIN."
- Thomas Hoerr
What is grit?
Grit is your ability to persevere through hardships, rejection, and any obstacle you may encounter in life. Research shows that talent and intelligence are not predictors of future success, rather "grit" has proven to be a more accurate indicator of achievement.
Do you have grit?
When faced with a challenge, do you take it head on? Do you give up after a few tries? When one has grit, they have the mental and emotional capacity to see a task through no matter how many challenges they encounter along the way.
How do you get grit?
Grit is not determined by genetics. A person can learn or train to have grit.
