The number one determining factor of success is grit. Grit is the intersection of passion and perseverance for long term goals. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Cultivating and building grit is not related to talent, IQ, or social skills. Rather, building and cultivating grit in ourselves is directly related to having a growth mindset – the belief that the ability to learn, to improve, and to become better at anything, is not fixed; it is malleable and fluid.
