In this episode, Angela Duckworth presents to us the crucial role of grit, effort, and hard work in achieving your dreams, glory, and success.

According to Angela, the person’s exceptional application of the skill, which is honed by consistent and quality efforts, creates human achievement. For this reason, she asserts that talent counts, but effort counts twice as much.

Angela further illustrates how hard work can beat talent, especially when talent refuses to work hard. As Gandhi once said, “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from indomitable will.” Likewise, Angela shows that grit is what sustains people to keep going no matter what. In the long run, grit is what will keep your aspirations and dreams alive.
