On today’s episode of The Psychology Podcast, we speak with Caroline Adams Miller about how to to get more grit. Caroline is a certified professional coach, author, media personality, and keynote speaker & educator. In this episode, we discuss what it means to be a positive psychology coach, why Caroline became interested in grit, why millennials may not be as gritty as previous generations, Caroline’s definition of “authentic grit”, the difference between “selfie” grit and “authentic grit”, when grit is “good” vs. when it could be harmful, current controversies surrounding grit, when to grit and when to quit, and some practical takeaways to increase your own grit. Wow, we might have just broken a record for the number of times we used the word “grit” in a single paragraph! 🙂 Enjoy, and please contribute to the discussion below.
