It's Grit that Drives Success

April 20, 2018
Every kid really is unique.  Each student brings something different to the table, quite literally!  But despite their uniqueness, our ‘treps all come to agree on one thing.  Starting a business is hard work, but working hard at something you choose to do, feels good.  What an important life lesson.  Figure out what you want to do, and work really hard at it until you’re proud of what you have created.
In her TED Talk, “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance,” psychologist and popular science author,   Angela Lee Duckworth, digs into an exciting idea.  In her research, she has learned that success is not driven by talent or IQ, but by GRIT.  She encourages us to find different ways to include experiences that build grit into the education of our young people. Small business owners have long term goals and persevere through obstacles and failures, routinely.  Ask any ‘trep and they will tell you it was a ton of work, and in the next breath, they will tell you how much they loved it.
