There are many people out there who feel like you have to be "talented" in some extraordinary way to achieve success in life. And while I agree that having talent and pursuing it can lead you into accomplishments and successes, I am more inclined to believe that having GRIT built within you can make the difference of hitting your desired targets in life or not.
That being said I want to share psychologist, Angela Duckworth's (the author of the awesome book GRIT) TEDTALK
I find her scientific study both inspiring and refreshing from society's obsession with the idea that one must be "gifted" to live a successFILLED life.
Personally I feel that my passion and perseverance aka GRIT, is the major component to what has and what does, fuel my process to achieve my life's desires.
How gritty are you?!
