Hana’s father gave her a book about Thomas Edison. While
everyone knows Edison invented the light bulb, few realize he
tried and failed more than 500 times before he added grit and
was finally able to succeed.
Hana read about Lady Gaga, a music pop star whose first
record label fired her after just three months. She just added
grit and became wildly successful.
Dr. Seuss, who wrote Hana’s favorite book, Cat in the Hat,
had his first book rejected 27 times. He added grit and went on
to write and publish 48 of the most well -known children
books of all time.
Each of these people used their brains to solve problems, sing
songs or tell stories by trying and failing at first but later
adding grit to persevere until they succeeded.
