1 - About

Grit is the disposition to pursue very long-term goals with passion and perseverance.

The best idea I've heard about building grit in kids is something called growth mindset. This is an idea developed at Stanford University by Carol Dweck, and it is the belief that the ability to learn is not fixed. That it can change with your effort. Dr. Dweck has shown that when kids read and learn about the brain and how it changes and grows in response to challenge, they're much more likely to persevere when they fail because they don't believe that failure is a permanent condition.
Pushing yourself farther than you thought you could
I have a lot of persistence. Persistence is the key to my life.

  • You fall down,
  • you get back up,
  • and you go again.

I don’t give up. That’s been the motto of my life in business and science. I’ve never been really good at anything, I just stay with it.
