We define grit as the ability to work through negative emotions to reach your goal.
Research by Angela Lee Duckworth, Carol Dweck, Paul Tough, and others demonstrates that students with grit are happier and more productive.
Gritters grit it out. Like everyone they get down when things don’t go right but for a Gritter being down doesn’t mean being out. Gritters don’t rely on just “being smart” and they don’t run away when things get tough.
Every employer, college, and university in the world wants Gritters because Gritters are the ones who make a difference in the world.
The good news is, even if you’re not a Gritter now, you can become one if you choose.
Are you a Gritter? It’s never to early to start. Our goal is to begin building grit when children are as young as age three.
