All agreeing that it definitely can be something that can help but could also hurt since some people take it as a pressure, which really could just work as motivation in the end.
All in all, it can be seen that support is an important factor when it comes to developing grit that shouldn't be overseen and underestimated.
In conclusion, the day when no one has to face struggles and obstacles to reach success in life will probably never come.
As students and even just people we will always reach moments in our life when we feel like things are not working out.
When asking people about what they think about grit and its development I found that they too tended put those topics on the spotlight as things that may hold people back from being grittier and successful.
Yet when support and motivation from others was mentioned they almost automatically agreed that it was next necessary for grit growth.
Grit is not a physical thing but it is more so something that people integrate into their lives to overcome things and have a better outlook on what they do.
It is a combination of hard work and perseverance while keeping a growth mindset.
As Duckworth herself puts it, “Grit is living life like a marathon not a sprint.” (Duckworth, Grit: The power of passion and perseverance).
In a TED talk given by her she points out that in her observations of grit in Chicago school students she found that those who were smart according to IQ levels were not always more likely to better than their lower IQ classmates.
