Day 1: Grit (October 3, 2022) Grit is often described as a quality of sheer persistence, taking you beyond mere talent. Others think of grit as an inborn quality. We discuss the truth about grit and how to develop it. To be great, you have to know your reasons for being - discovering your why! In this first session, we discuss the importance of knowing your long-term goals, why you're pursuing them, and why sticking to them creates success that takes you further than mere talent.  

Optimism (October 4, 2022). Sticks and stones may break my bones...you know words matter. But do you realize how important the words you say to and about yourself matter the most? Discuss the power of optimism, and why optimistic people are happier, healthier, and more satisfied. How do you practice optimism?

Perseverance (October 5, 2022). Perseverance is often described as being consistent over time. Once you set your goal, all it really takes is discipline and effort to see it through, no matter what. Sounds easy right? In this final session, we discuss perseverance, and why it's so important to our growth.
