≪LATTER HALF≫
During this season of Olympic game, witnessing many inspiring moment by Olympic players on TV,
I always wonder how these sports players got to become who they are. Are they just gifted
enough to be Olympic players, or is there any successful factor which makes them totally
different from most of us? Are the players called “Genius” really gifted, or are they
just a hard-working “Mortal” who made themselves “Genius” with tremendous efforts to achieve their goal?

Today, I want you to think what “the grit” is which is considered to be a successful factor in life,
and get sort of tips for you to have more successful and fulfilling life.
So, please be relaxed and share your thought.

[Agenda]
Can “The Grit”(The power of passion and perseverance) be a predictor of success, more than IQ?

Angela Lee Duckworth, the Psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania, found out that IQ was not the only thing separating
the successful people from those who struggled. After all her studies, she learned that “the grit” is the factor which leads you to the successful life.
■Tips for discussion
・The definition of Grit
To have passion and perseverance for very long-term goals.
To have stamina
To stick with your future, work really hard to make that future a reality.
・Ms. Angela’s Key Message
・Doing well in school and in life depends much more on “”the grit”
than your ability to learn quickly and easily
・Her data shows talent(gift) and grit is not related,
there are many talented individuals who simply do not follow
through on their commitments.
・Her data shows grit is usually unrelated or even inversely related to
measures of talent.
・The best idea to build grit in kids is “growth mindset”, which is the
belief that the ability to learn is not fixed, that it can change with your effort.

[Questions]
Q1.Have you ever seen someone* who has “grit” in your life?
Please share your idea.
* does not have to be your friends (ex. A famous Olympic sports player, historical people)

Q2.Do you find yourself as a person with “grit”?
Please share your story with the reason why you choose “yes or no”

Q3.Do you support Ms. Lee’s idea that “the grit” is the factor
which leads you to the successful life more than “IQ” or “Talent(gift)”.
Please share your idea with example you can come up with.

Q4.If allowed, what type of trait would you like to have, other than “the grit”?
Please share your idea with reason why.
(ex. I want to have a trait of “vitality”, I think I can make my life more meaningful with this
ex. I want to have a trait of “absolute beauty.”, I think I can get married to the rich guy with this, etc.)

Q5.To be a person with “the grit”, you are required to have ability to continue
something for a long-term.
Do you have something you have tried so hard for a long time?
If you have, please share your story and tips for that.
(ex. language learning, wake-up early ritual, running)

~If time allows~
