Recently I’ve been looking at the work of Angela Lee Duckworth which revolves around the concept of grit and the part it plays in succeeding.
The following are links to check out her web page and a couple of talks she has given.
Grit falls nicely into the concept of character strengths because if you don’t have honesty, Integrity and sincerity about what you are doing and respect for what you do, you’re never going to develop grit for grit encompasses perseverance.
I was all set to purchase any book Angela had written about the subject, though have found out via one of her talks she has no current plans to write one, though if you would like to purchase a book which has the concept of grit in it, begin with:
How Children Succeed – Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough
Grit – The gravelled path to success
