Study after study shows that the main factor in real success is not talent, or potential or even ability. It’s not about academic achievement or background. It is about determination, clear direction, a positive attitude, a drive to constantly improve and the ability to keep going whatever is thrown at them. That is what grit is. When the going is good, we can get by with a mediocre team, but what happens when it gets tough, or you want to push on and achieve something really special? Teams with grit at their heart go further, achieve more, overcome obstacles, lean on each other and have that winning mentality.
