What is Grit?

Grit is passion and perseverance for long-term goal. Stamina.Sticking with your future. Grit is living life like a Marathon, not a sprint.

There are many talented individuals who simply do not follow through on their commitments. In fact, in our data, grit is usually unrelated or even inversely related to measures of talent.

– Angela Lee Duckworth

I’ve always been a firm believer of working with passion and this just validated what I had always thought of. It is not the IQ or talent that can make you successful but your willingness to fail and your commitment to your dreams.

One of my vows for this year would be to watch more motivational talks like this. Consider this as the start of sharing more motivation talks of different people from all over the world.
