Here’s an explanation of the difference between “grit” and “resilience”:
“Grit is the tendency to sustain interest in and effort toward very long-term goals” (Duckworth et al., 2007). … Grit is about sustained, consistent effort toward a goal even when we struggle, falter, or temporarily fail. Resilience is our ability to bounce back after we have struggled, faltered, or failed.
