The Power of Passion and PerseveranceBook - 2016
Psychologist Angela Duckworth shows parents, educators, athletes, students, and business people that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a focused persistence called "grit." Duckworth's hypothesis is that what really drives success is not "genius" but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance. Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, this is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that - not talent or luck - makes all the difference.
