Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
What makes high achievers successful is grit—a “combination of passion and perseverance”—coupled to their raw talent. Talent is important, but talent multiplied by grit is what builds skill, and skill multiplied by grit equals achievement. (Based on a book by Angela Duckworth). Would like to share our story at Hyperb (PlaceILive) and how we moved from pivot to pivot in search for success. How we struggled and always bounced back. We are still looking where our success is, but we now feel more confident than ever.
