Grit and Goals

Angela Lee Duckworth was a maths teacher but quickly realized that IQ wasn't the only thing separating her successful students from those who struggled, so she changed her career path and trained to become a psychologist to continue exploring about the importance of grit when learning. Grit is about passion and perseverance and having a growth mindset and a willingness to fail but to pick yourself up again and learn from those failures.
