Grit is the ability to be resilient in the face of failure and adversity. It’s the ‘get up’ and ‘keep going’ when things get difficult, a key factor in success. This is obviously the hard part. When we are good at something and it comes easily to us, it feels good and is fun to do. We naturally want do more of it. But, things don’t stay easy if you’re really going to improve. For example, Tiger is good at baseball and loves playing it, but to become better he will have to keep trying even when he plays against other kids that are bigger and better. By sticking to it he is showing grit.
