Heard of GRIT? Here’s your primer on the formula by Paul Stoltz, who studies resilience and is CEO of training company Peak Learning.
Growth is based on how much you seek out fresh perspectives, new ideas, alternatives and innovative approaches.
Resilience is your capacity to bounce back from adversity and make good use of it.
Instinct is a quick, gut-level response to pursue the right goals the right way.
Tenacity measures the degree to which you persist in going after whatever you are trying to achieve.
There are two levels: “grit” is your quantity of toughness, while “GRIT,” an upgraded version, is quantity plus quality.
