Grit, Resilience, and Balance

It’s not glittery memes and “positivity porn” that helps a person achieve their goals; it’s grit.
Angela Lee Duckworth says, “Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. 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. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
