To have grit is to move to action, to animate, to drive, and to energise. It is a signal of proactive commitment to creating enduring value by energising and inspiring while being rooted in clarity of thought. To have grit, therefore, is to seek resolution in a way that inspires passion and activates ambition that is grounded in insight.
Grit is not easy to define.
Sometimes it’s easier to define it by what it isn’t:
It isn’t talent.
It isn’t luck or timing.
It isn’t about a fleeting desire.
It isn’t about hard work.
Grit is an unwavering dedication.
It is more about attitude than the end game.
The commitment to finish what we start.
The determination to rise from setbacks.
The drive to improve and succeed.
The willingness to undertake sustained and sometimes unpleasant preparation and repetition in order to do so.
Grit is the achievement of a singularly important goal.
Through perseverance and passion.
It is achieving success not based solely on experience or skill,
But also through the sustained and focused application of experience and skill over time.
GRIT IS ABOUT A FIRMNESS OF CHARACTER. IT IS AN INDOMITABLE SPIRIT A TENACITY TO KEEP GOING AND THE RESOLVE TO SUCCEED
GRIT: The achievement of long-term goals through perseverance and passion. Achieving success not only through talent, but also through the sustained and focused application of talent over time. Firmness of character; indomitable spirit; pluck.
