EP 38 | Why Grit and Productive Struggle Lead to Growth Mindset

By Kim Strobel

December 16, 2020

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.”
