Let’s Sing the Song of Grit

Angela Lee Duckworth (Photo: angeladuckworth.com)

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 very hard to make that dream a reality.

Grit is living life like its a marathon, not a sprint.

~ Angela Lee Duckworth (1970 – )
American academic, teacher-turned-psychologist, popular science author

from her speech, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
delivered at TED Talks
