Grit and resilience – the characteristics that often determine who rises to the top, who fights their way through, and who beats the odds. Both grit and resilience are important (and distinct) skills to have in today’s work world, where priorities often shift and we’re constantly asked to do more with less. For some people it seems to be innate – they can push through to the finish line and bounce back from setbacks. But luckily for everyone, these are skills that we can develop.
Turns out grit and resilience operate like muscles, and there are little things we can do every day to strengthen them: use specific language when we self-talk, take small risks, and set goals (and quitting points!) for ourselves.
