In today’s episode of the She Finds Joy podcast, Kim talks all about Angela Duckworth. She’s a professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and in her research she has stated that it is neither talent, nor physical strength, nor intelligence that leads to outstanding achievement and success in life. The secret is grit.
Duckworth defines grit as “Passion and sustained persistence applied toward long-term achievement, with no particular concern for rewards or recognition along the way.”
In this episode, Kim discusses Duckworth’s research on grit and how it can be the number one determiner of why some people fail—while others succeed—at accomplishing their goals and dreams.

- What grit is and how you can start being grittier in life.

“Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals.” – Angela Duckworth, University of Pennsylvania Professor of Psychology
