5 Ways to Attain True Financial Grit

– by Keith Klein


It’s 10pm and I walked into my son’s room to find him completely frustrated by his Algebra homework. “I keep getting the wrong answer, Dad.” Although he really wanted a high grade on the following Friday’s quiz, he was ready to give up.  So, I sat down with him and we started over – from scratch. He stuck with it, and the next thing we knew, the light bulb switched on, and it was easy. He will always remember FOIL.

On my way to bed that night, I thought about the hard lessons that I have learned in my life, and wondered: if everything came easily to me, what would my life look like today? Trials, hardships and the struggle to remain true to ourselves can be the grit that polishes us.

Dr. Angela Duckworth from the University of Pennsylvania has been studying the concept of Grit.  She defines Grit as “the tendency to sustain interest in and effort toward very long-term goals.”
