This video is part of the "The Positive Psychology of Achievement: Unpacking Grit, Self-efficacy, and More" series, In this series of five videos, Caroline Adams Miller, MAAP, uses a positive psychology framework to explain why happiness is a prerequisite for success, and how to use goal-setting theory to set and achieve goals, create helpful support networks, and develop authentic grit.

In this video, Caroline Adams Miller, MAPP, asks what grit is and why it matters, citing the research of Angela Duckworth as a springboard for her own developments about grit. Miller distinguishes between four kinds of grit: authentic, stupid, selfie, and faux. Within the authentic category of grit, are four types of “good” grit. Defining grit as the passionate pursuit of hard goals that awes and inspires others to become better people, Miller also discusses the ingredients of authentic grit.
