Grit: Less Common, More Needed
January 28, 2014
Keeping your mouth shut & doing the work that needs to be done.
Coming in for that extra workout without being told to do so.
Refusing to give up, give in, or give anything less than your best.
Grit --- perseverance and passion for long term goals.
Grit is less common among athletes today, but is more needed.
The pace of life today has spawned both an innate expectation for instant results and a dearth of delayed gratification in athletes.
Yet, we all know that the most rewarding things in life take time.
The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.
Find the deepest meaning in a goal that will bring out grit in you.
Once you've experienced grit, nothing in life is impossible.
