This Is The Research-Backed Way To Increase Grit

Posted by on May 12, 2016


Grit is defined in many ways, but our favorite description of it is passion for life goals paired with the perseverance to achieve that objective.  Not everyone has it  in the levels they want, but most things in life, it can be learned and practiced and developed so that you can keep going on.  The article explains some of the beliefs necessary to have more grit, and one of the more striking examples is this, from Navy SEAL training:

When you go out on a mission, you always acknowledge your successes but much more important than that is you take a hard look at your failures and are willing to accept criticism. One of the key strengths of the SEAL Teams is the culture of constant self-improvement. No one ever says, “That’s good enough.” On almost every real world mission I was on – even the most successful ones – we spent 90% of our post-mission debrief focusing on what we did wrong or could have done better.

Even the men and women trained to be the best and execute it the best know they have room for improvement.
