Grit. Do you know what that means, grit?  I’m not talking about grits, the breakfast side dish found in the south.  I’m talking about that labored, dirty hands, sweaty, getting after it kind of feeling (insert your own picture idea here).

Grit. Personality trait
Grit in psychology is a positive, non‑cognitive trait based on an individual’s passion for a particular long‑term goal or endstate, coupled with a powerful motivation to achieve their respective objective – Wikipedia

There are three aspects of grit to look at.

1. Sustaining passion and endurance over time (years) is essentially the definition of grit.
2. People who are gritty have a cognitive mindset to focus on things that they can change. They are positive and optimistic.
3. Always remember that no great human achievement exists that doesn’t have thousands of hours of work behind it.

Do you have grit?
