Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have found that those with grit are more likely to achieve success in school, work, and other pursuits—perhaps because their passion and commitment help them endure the inevitable setbacks that occur in any long-term undertaking.…What fuels grit is probably passion, a mix of emotional and intellectual connection to a goal. Helping children find their passion, by exposing them to an array of academic and artistic pursuits, may be one of the most important things parents can do for their kids. Grit thrives in the face of moderate challenges, those that are attainable but require considerable effort. Optimism supports grit; it enables people to see the value of working hard to overcome obstacles and solve problems.
