Grit is a buzzword. When you hear it you think of warriors or people that have made it in the world of business or have come back from some incredible circumstances. And each of these very easily could be examples of grit. It's been said that Grit is a combination of passion and perseverance. If this is the definition that we are using then there are 2 things that are very important: 1) passion: a strong and almost uncontrollable emotion or feeling about something or doing something and blending that with 2) perseverance: steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or number of failures. Sounds pretty obvious and "easy" except that grit is NOT talent. You are born with certain talents. You aren't born with GRIT. Grit is built. Its built by joy for what it task is. If you are passionate about it then that means that you almost uncontrollably feel for the task. And you have the perseverance to keep moving towards that passion no matter how many times you fail, or hit a roadblock. The easy way is to just stop or complain about it. The harder thing is to get knocked down and get back up and try it again. But if you have grit, then you will keep getting up over and over. Not to do the exact same thing (since that's the definition of insanity) but get up each time and try to make it happen or come up with new ways to make it happen. But it's uncomfortable to do this. So we need to toughen ourselves up to this. We need to put ourselves in situations in which we need to hone our GRIT. Luckily, you get that opportunity every day you are here at the gym. You have a task that you enjoy and you have to fight through it. You will breathe hard, your muscles will be burning, you will want to stop, you will want to lay down, but you won't. You will keep picking yourself up and going back to the bar until each of the reps have been counted or the time expires. this daily test is what will help you in your regular everyday life. You will see the world as AMRAPs and will be able to push until the end more often. This is your testing ground and garden for your GRIT to grow. Test it, Push it, Grow it. Then put your grit with your talent and make some amazing things in this world!!:)
