So often we think that grit is about how we respond to extreme situations, but what about everyday circumstances?
Mental toughness is like a muscle. It needs to be worked to grow and develop.
✅ Choose to do the tenth rep when it would be easier to just do nine.
✅ Choose to create when it would be easier to consume.
✅ Choose to ask the extra question when it would be easier to accept.
Prove to yourself — in a thousand tiny ways — that you have enough guts to get in the ring and do battle with life.
Mentally tough people don’t have to be more courageous, more talented, or more intelligent — just more consistent.
Grit comes down to your habits, folks.
✅ It’s about doing the things you know you’re supposed to do on a more consistent basis.
✅ It’s about your dedication to daily practice and your ability to stick to a schedule.
𝐆ive it your all.
𝐑e-do, if necessary.
𝐈gnore giving up.
𝐓ake time to do it right.
“𝐆𝐑𝐈𝐓 is sticking with your future day in, day out and not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years.” ~ Angela Lee Duckworth
“What is grit? Grit is refusing to give up. It’s persistence. It’s making your own luck.” ~ Peter Diamandis
In a nutshell: Grit is the perseverance and passion to achieve meaningful and long-term goals.
