Today we are talking about the Grit habit. I love Angela Duckworth’s test to see how gritty you are! You can score from 1-5, and see where you rank on the scale.
I’ve realized over time that grit is sort of a learned behavior. I am an example of that. I have had to step up my grit over the last several years because I wanted to be happy.
3 things come to mind to make you more gritty:
- The never give up habit – I have to tell myself this almost every day at some point. It’s a repeated habit that is now ingrained in me.
- Make friends – put yourself out there in your community. I have friends in unusual places and they enrich my life and make it more full.
Self-care is important.
