They are laser focused on their goals and, according to New York Times Best Seller “Grit, the Power of Passion and Perseverance” they have the ability to preserve despite any obstacle. What makes them winners is their deep sense of personal empowerment.

Don’t be afraid to take risks because you may fall flat on your face. Goof-ups, missteps, slip-ups and embarrassments are no reason to ring one’s hands and hang one’s head.
