“Success is rarely, if ever, easily obtained. It rises from the ashes of multiple failures like the proverbial phoenix, having to be fought for, chased and desired above all else. That is particularly true in this day and age when competition is fiercer, criticism is deeper, and expectations are higher. A thousand and one obstacles will be thrown up along your journey, seeking to stop your career and even your very existence. I know because I have failed at most things in my life and was even diagnosed with cancer. I shouldn’t be a success, but I learned to apply certain foundational characteristics that I have found to be the ‘stuff’ of entrepreneurs, leaders, and champions.


These characteristics, if applied, will make your life’s ambitions much easier to obtain and more successful than dreamed. I have come to know these characteristics as Guts, Resilience, Initiative, and Tenacity—or—G.R.I.T.”
