“The slogans ‘hang on’ and ‘press on’ have solved and will continue to solve the problems of humanity.”

Are you familiar with the word grit? There has been a media frenzy over this buzzword, which some claim as the key to success.
Believers in this concept suggest that if one is to reach the highest levels of success, talent must be combined with hard work, determination, and perseverance.
Angela Duckworth, author of Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, emphasizes the importance of passion. She stresses that without passion, dogged determination, and tenacity, hard work simply becomes drudgery without direction.
