Psychologist Angela Duckworth has spent years studying kids and adults, and found that one characteristic is a significant predictor of success: Grit!
"Grit is having stamina.”
“Grit is sticking with your future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality”, she said in a TED talk on the subject.
"Grit is living life like it's a marathon, not a sprint."
