Do you have grit?

Have you ever heard the phrase, “do you have what it takes?”.  This is a leading question about GRIT and our ability to complete things even when we may not feel like it or when things are hard.  Tonight, we dive into GRIT, how to develop GRIT and how to identify how much GRIT you have.  Statistics tell us, based on a study performed by the US Military Academy, that GRIT is a better indicator of success than intelligence and physical fitness.  One resource we mentioned multiple times was a GRIT score, based on Angela Duckworth’s book, which is a self-assessment hosted by Penn St University.  Go give it a try and let us know how you do.

We mentioned a lot of resources tonight too.  Anytime we mention a new book, person or tool, you can always find more about it on our website here.

If you get value from any of this, it would mean the world to us if you share this with just 1 friend and ask them to subscribe.   As always, you can also find us on YouTube and iTunes podcasts.
