Planning for and being successful takes hard work and dedication. It requires focus and strong-will. Psychologist and researcher, Angela Lee Duckworth, reminds us that it also takes grit. “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 really hard to make that future a reality.” You can see her TED video on the “The Key to Success?
