As the first book review from the desk of Clarity Virtual Support, I’d like to showcase Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth. In it, she shares her research on the character trait known as grit. Grit has two components: passion and perseverance.
Passion means having an enduring interest in the job you are doing. Perseverance means being persistent and not giving up, especially when facing challenges and adversity.
I chose Grit as the first up to let you know that I feel passionate about what I am building as an entrepreneur. About how I can best serve and what I have to offer my clients. The things I learned in this book encapsulate what I strive to do here at Clarity Virtual Support.
Angela Duckworth’s work is inspiring. Grit’s message is hopeful for all of us: anyone and everyone can be gritty. Grit is something we can all cultivate. In fact, the more we exercise our grit muscles, the grittier we become! So…let’s get out there and flex 🙂
