“I’ll either find a way, or I’ll make one.” – Hannibal

Said by a man who got elephants to climb a mountain.

Angela Duckworth, a leading expert on the study of “grit”, defines it as follows: “Passion and sustained persistence applied towards long-term achievement, with no particular concern for rewards or recognition along the way.” If there is a single attribute that is the closest correlate to success, it may very well be grit. Grit is very much in line with our definition of “mental toughness”. To give our unconditional best, regardless of the circumstances.

It’s doing the unsexy hard work… when no one’s watching. It’s refusing to see a “failure” as “defeat”. It’s refusing to believe that elephants can’t climb mountains… and then proving it.
