Think about people you were at school with. Who was wonderfully talented (sport or academics) ...and where are they now? Plenty of talented people have the potential for greatness, but often just effortlessly 'ride the wave' of their talent, and hence don't develop the desire and drive, to strive for success and improvement.
"Grit is about sweat, not swagger. Character, not charisma".
So what, now what? Instead of coasting along in life, how about developing your ability to be more tenacious, to have that grit to propel yourself to greatness. Whatever that is for you. Grit takes daily focus. Make the steps small and achievable. Eating the elephant one bite at a time. But, remember to do it consistently ... DAILY!
