Grit causes a person to have a dream and a set plan and to get it done at all cost. Whether it takes one year or five years, they do not give up. They have a drive and are willing to change an idea if it betters the result. They find different plans to get it done. When something gets in the way they remember their passion and how badly they want it and they are not willing to settle for anything less. They do not rely on their talents alone. They use their talents to the best of their ability and even bring out talents they did not know they had because they were driven to succeed at all cost. They let their passion drive them to get it done along with their talents. A student without grit is willing to change their passion when they get stumped. They do not try to take on another task with a new plan, they accept the fact of failure and change the passion or dream they have set out to achieve. They rely on only their talent and when that talent does not take them all the way they are willing to think that they gave their best. They are ready to give up if they do not prosper the first time. They want everything to be easy and handed to them with the minimum requirement of work and effort.
