Whatever happened to GRIT? – Today’s Quote

Thomas Edison’s teachers …told his mom he was “too stupid to learn.” His attempts to build a light bulb failed a thousand times. When he finally succeeded, a reporter asked him, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention …with 1,000 steps.”

That’s grit.
