內容簡介




對於任何努力想成功的人而言,這是一本必讀之作。權威心理學家Angela Duckworth告訴家長、教育者、運動員、學生與企業人士,達到傑出成就的秘密,並不是天份,而是名為「堅韌」的不動搖的毅力。

「《Grit》是回應『智商狂熱』極具說服力又驚人的作品。Duckworth提醒我們,讓成功脫穎而出的,是性格與毅力。」--《引爆趨勢》(The Tipping Point)與《異數》(Outliers)作者麥爾坎.葛拉威爾(Malcolm Gladwell)

「很有啟發性……《Grit》教我們,高峰不一定是由那些天生敏捷的人所征服,而是那些願意忍受、等待暴風過去,然後再度嘗試的人。」--曾七度攻頂珠穆朗瑪峰、《No Shortcuts to the Top》作者Ed Viesturs

「一部思慮周延、扣人心弦的作品,探討什麼會導向成功。《Grit》挑戰廣為流傳的誤解,以及驅使我們更努力向前的因素……Duckworth的故事,穿插於她的研究中,最後成功證明她的理論:熱情與毅力組成堅韌。」Tory Burch總裁、執行長、設計師Tory Burch

為什麼有些人成功,有些人失敗?作者向讀者分享,她對於「堅韌」的指標性研究,說明天份不是成功的保證。取而代之的,找到熱情,並將心力投注其中,才是更加關鍵的因素。

她也從身為科學家的女兒,時常被怪罪不夠聰慧的經驗中,寫出強而有力的故事。作者訴說她曾在教學、企業諮詢與神經科學領域涉獵的崎嶇道路,更加確信,促使成功發生的,並不是天份,而是融合了熱情,以及長時間持續不墜的毅力。她身為賓州大學的教授,創造了屬於自己的「個性實驗室」,準備驗證她的理論。

她帶領讀者進入研究領域,拜訪在最棘手的學校教學的老師、剛進西點軍校,咬牙撐過入校初期的學生,以及進入全國拼字比賽(National Spelling Bee)決賽的年輕參賽者。她從歷史中,挖掘出令人驚豔的觀點,也呈現能從現代實驗的最佳結果中,學習到的事物。最後,她也向讀者分享,她從訪問數十位成就卓越的人物中,學到了什麼,包括摩根大通集團執行長傑米.戴蒙(Jamie Dimon)與《紐約客》的漫畫編輯等。

本書私密且見解深刻,甚至可能改變人生,告訴讀者,當你跌倒時,腦中出現的事情(不是天份或運氣),如何帶來所有的改變。

Why do naturally talented people frequently fail to reach their potential while other far less gifted individuals go on to achieve amazing things? The secret to outstanding achievement is not talent, but a passionate persistence. In other words, grit.

MacArthur Genius Award-winning psychologist Angela Duckworth shares fascinating new revelations about who succeeds in life and why. Based on her cutting-edge research, Duckworth shows how many people achieve remarkable things not just by relying on innate natural talent, but by practising what she calls grit. She then offers a Grit Formula to help anyone to become more gritty, focusing on six key factors: hope, effort, precision, passion, ritual and prioritisation. She reveals:

- Why people who test high for talent often fail to achieve their potential, and why people who do not test high for talent often "overachieve" what others expect them to do
- How grit can be learned, whatever your IQ or circumstances
- Why stubbornness is a key characteristic of gritty people
- When to be stubborn and when giving up is the grittiest thing you can do
- How gritty people found their passion, and you can find yours
- How gritty experts practise, and how you can do the same in your own life
- What the people who care about you can do to boost your grit when you need it most
- How grit is cultivated in the highest-performing sports teams, companies and schools

Leaping past clichés such as 'success is all about hard work', Grit offers a fresh and motivating way to climb to heights far beyond what natural talent would predict.
