Simon Phin - Grit – The Power of Passion & Perseverance

Grit. No, it's not John Wayne in True Grit. It's the evidence behind what makes us our best selves.

Angela Duckworth is brilliant. As a Psychologist who makes an impact her work shows anyone striving to succeed—be it, parents, students, teachers, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a blend of passion and persistence.

This is a brilliant oration on TED that helps us understand why five attributes will help us get through almost any challenge we are faced with. Courage, Conscientiousness, Perseverance, Resilience & Passion.

If we believe that we alone can get through it, whatever that is, we're mistaken. This is a great talk and can only benefit anyone wanting to improve their well-being.
