Talent or effort?
What do you think is more important thing for success?
I first think talent is not changed. So I focused on effort. But when compared with other people, It brings me down. So I think there is a problem in my talent. However, I didn’t stop my effort. Sometimes I cried and sometimes I was happy. This is my story.
How about you? 🙂
Grit : the power of passion and perseverance
I will tell you the latest research. Do you know ‘Grit‘?
Let’s see this TED video. Angela Duckworth [Grit : the power of passion and perseverance]
What is the criteria that predicts success ? It wasn’t IQ.
So, what is it? It was Grit. What is Grit?
Angela Duckworth said “Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is sticking with your future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality” in TED.
What’s more surprising is the reason why Angela Duckworth started this research. It’s some sad. She always heard of the same thing from her father. “You have no talent!!!” “You have no talent!!!” “You have no talent!!!”
How awful would that be…?
How could we build Grit?
Angela Duckworth suggests that ‘Growth mindset‘ is a one of best ideas. This is an idea developed at Stanford University by Carol Dweck. It is the belief that the ability to learn is not fixed, so you can change with your effort.
Let’s see a Video. Carol Dweck, “Developing a Growth Mindset”
Do you want to succeed?
First I ask you. What does ‘Success’ mean to you?
Success is exciting. Me too. So, we would have to make an effort. Just trying hard?
[Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise] is a book of K. Anders Ericsson. He said “Not just trying hard, important thing is a deliberate practice“.
The keyword are Grit, Growth mindset and Deliberate practice. I wish I can help your future. 🙂 See you later.
