Tempted to give up? Here's how to keep going.
If you browse through the interviews with some of the most successful people on Earth, you'll find one common piece of advice shared by virtually all of them:
They never give up on their big goals.
Research shows that grit is a better predictor for success than any other factor. The ability to keep going despite setbacks is more important than your IQ, character, or external factors like your upbringing or surroundings.
But what does it really mean to "never give up"? What exactly is grit? How do you persevere when faced with larger-than-life difficulties? How do you keep going when you're at the brink of exhaustion, and all your hard work hasn't been rewarded yet?
I wrote this book to explore the subject of persistence from a more scientific point of view than clichéd self-help sayings provide. I want to share with you how exactly to stick to your goals according to peak performers and science - not vague motivational advice that assumes we have unlimited strength once we're motivated enough.
Here are just a couple of things you will learn from the book:
There's no reason why you should give up if you're working on the right goal. Learn how to make sure you'll reach your objectives. Buy the audiobook now.

"Concise and helpful without a lot of fluff"
