Have you ever heard that success is based on factors such as intelligence or talent; that those who have the highest brain power or giftedness in an area are the most likely to succeed? It would seem that the spoils go to the smartest, the most trained, and the most connected. This simply isn’t so! Psychologists have discovered that there is an element that almost always works in tandem with wit and ability when measuring success- grit.
Grit isn’t something most people talk about when it comes to success because it feels intangible and as though there is no formula to follow to get grittier; however, there are simple actions that you can take to increase your management of greater levels of stress, increase stamina, and outlast any issue that develops in your life.
