Develop Grit! shared by Project Life Mastery & Angela Duckworth

Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.

-Julie Andrews-

What makes some of us work harder than others? Can doing “one hard thing” a day help develop “grit” early in life? Today’s Daily Dose shared by Stefan at Project Life Mastery is a great primer to understanding the world of “grit”.

Stefan’s thesis comes from a book by Angela Duckworth, check it out below:

Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

Angela quit a stressful consultant position to teach math to seventh graders in the New York City. After studying why some students worked harder and longer than others, she began to develop an understanding of the qualities which promote perseverance.  Angela then developed a Grit Scale which is a series of questions to test your ability to persevere.  Check it out here!

If you enjoy this clip, check out more from Project Life Mastery. Stefan James does an awesome job helping us move toward a more abundant life. Learn more about Angela Duckworth via her website and her Ted Talk where she introduces her research on Grit.

Hope you enjoy these two great creators as much as I have. Have a great day.

Stay Wise and Gritty!

  1. Good morning my friend. Thank you so much for sharing this, I love the concept of grit! With modern society’s high tempo lifestyles, it can be easy to lose focus and lose commitment to ‘my truth’.
    I just did the quiz and scored well – that said, there is always room for improvement.
    Thanks again, and stay gritty also xoxo

  2. I recently finished Grit and found it so inspiring. More people need to hear that it’s not just about talent but about perseverance, practice and passion!
