UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL THROUGH PURPOSEFUL ADVERSITY

How Does Grit Contribute To Success?

Angela Duckworth’s website can answer this question best. Angela Duckworth, the psychologist who wrote the book Grit. She put grit on the map for me. At her website angeladuckworth.com, in her  Q & As she states that “Grit is passion and perseverance for long-term goals. One way to think about grit is to consider what grit isn’t. Grit isn’t talent. Grit isn’t luck. Grit isn’t how intensely, for the moment, you want something. Instead, grit is about having what some researchers call an”ultimate concern”–a goal you care about so much that it organizes and gives meaning to almost everything you do. And grit is holding steadfast to that goal. Even when you fall down. Even when you screw up. Even when progress toward that goal is halting or slow. Talent and luck matter to success. But talent and luck are no guarantee of grit. And in the very long run, I think grit may matter as least as much, if not more.”

I couldn’t agree more. I think you have to have a little talent, and a little bit of luck. I think grit is going to take you very far in life. I love when she mentions that grit isn’t how intensely for a moment you want something. To me that’s motivation. Motivation comes and goes. Grit is about the consistency of working towards those goals. Grit is day in and day out, doing the things that suck, and doing the things you don’t want to do, to set you up for long term success.
