It’s Grit that Gets Us Through Tough Times

What makes a Navy SEAL a Navy Seal? Why did 25% of my Officer Candidate School classmates quit training in the first week? Why does your top sales exec produce exponentially better results than your bottom one?

It can be summed up in one word – GRIT! Those who talk about the dream and those who actually accomplish it.

People with grit have the determination to get things done, no matter the circumstance. They don’t quit. 

The economy is now challenged and many businesses are fighting for survival. How will grit get us through to the other side?
