No, not that.
Do you think the key to success in your online marketing venture means having a high IQ? A 4.0 GPA?
What if I told you a recent study by a Wharton School of Business professor showed it is neither of those?
Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth of the Wharton school of Business shared in her recent TED talk on success that the difference between people who succeed and those who don’t is
not IQ, but what she calls “grit”. This is probably what we know conventionally as “elbow grease”, “nose to the grindstone”, or in more current slang “being on your grind”.
Seriously, watch her TED Talk below about how self-determination, perseverance, and focus lead to success.
You can even take this quiz Dr. Duckworth developed and find out your grit score here. So here’s what I’d like you to do.
1. Take the quiz.
2. Post it below, and then let me know your thoughts. Do you agree or disagree with this theory? What will you do differently?
