• Description : Talent is overrated - learn what truly makes you succeed Angela Duckworth's seminal work on why passion and perseverance matter more than anything Why do naturally talented people frequently fail to reach their potential while other far less gifted individuals go on to achieve amazing things? The secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a passionate persistence. In other words, grit. MacArthur Genius Award-winning psychologist Angela Duckworth shares fascinating new revelations about who succeeds in life and why. Based on her cutting-edge research, Duckworth shows how many people achieve remarkable things not just by relying on innate natural talent, but by practising what she calls grit. She then offers a Grit Formula to help anyone to become more gritty, focusing on six key factors: hope, effort, precision, passion, ritual and prioritisation. She reveals: - Why people who test high for talent often fail to achieve their potential, and why people who do not test high for talent often "overachieve" what others expect them to do - How grit can be learned, whatever your IQ or circumstances - Why stubbornness is a key characteristic of gritty people - When to be stubborn and when giving up is the grittiest thing you can do - How gritty people found their passion, and you can find yours - How gritty experts practise, and how you can do the same in your own life - What the people who care about you can do to boost your grit when you need it most - How grit is cultivated in the highest-performing sports teams, companies and schools Leaping past clichés such as 'success is all about hard work', Grit offers a fresh and motivating way to climb to heights far beyond what natural talent would predict.

Why do some people succeed and others fail? Sharing new insights from her landmark research on grit, MacArthur “genius” Angela Duckworth explains why talent is hardly a guarantor of success. Rather, other factors can be even more crucial such as identifying our passions and following through on our commitments.Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently bemoaned her lack of smarts, Duckworth describes her winding path through teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a special blend of passion and long-term perseverance. As a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Duckworth created her own “character lab” and set out to test her theory. Here, she takes readers into the field to visit teachers working in some of the toughest schools, cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers-from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to the cartoon editor of The New Yorker to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.

• Description : Grit by Angela Duckworth | Summary & Analysis Preview: In Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance, Angela Duckworth discusses her research into the characteristics of successful people. She argues that innate talent is less important to success than the willingness to persevere despite difficulty and initial failure. People tend to believe that innate ability is the most important determinant of success and achievement. However, IQ tests and other measures of supposedly natural talent are poor predictors of performance. On the other hand, questionnaires designed to measure perseverance and determination correlate these qualities with success. Hard workers with determination can succeed even in fields like math, which students usually regard as dominated by people with talent or genius. Grit itself is not a fixed characteristic. Rather, it is a trait that can be learned and cultivated. Individuals can build grit by focusing on their own passions and by cutting out activities or goals that distract from more central endeavors… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
