Karlyn's Corner Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

From Karlyn:

This TedTalk provides a little background on the importance of grit. Research has shown that it isn't always the smartest, most clever, fastest, or whatever-est individual that is most successful. It turns out that it is an individual's grit that will help predict their success. Grit is the combination of passion and perseverance. It is not enough to be good. It is not enough to love what you do. To be successful you need to be able to persevere in the face of adversity. You need to be able to dig deep and find your drive to keep going. 

Perhaps this weekend, you faced some adversity or perhaps you will face adversity in the near future. One thing to consider is what is going to help you dig deep to stay passionate and stay strong when the challenge comes your way?
