Episode 09: Cindra Kamphoff on Building Grit and a High-Performance Mindset
Have you ever wondered how some people can commit to really big goals and never, ever give up? They have a clear vision, and they strive towards it every single day. A common characteristic that these people hold, is that they have what’s called, grit.
But what is grit? How do you get it? Can you train for it? And, most importantly, how do we go beyond grit to reach our potential, achieve our goals and triumph professionally.
