It's not WHAT challenges you face in life but HOW you face them that determines how fast you reach your goals. Rhonda Vetere, seasoned C-Suite technology veteran and author of the new book Grit & Grind, knows first-hand that there's no such thing as a perfect, struggle-free life. In her work as a Global Technology Executive, she's faced down some of the biggest financial crises of modern times, and she knows it's not WHAT challenges you face in life but HOW you face them that matters.
Grit & Grind uses real-life stories of how Rhonda Vetere and her team navigate the volatile tech industry and illustrates a simple 10-part practice for building bone-deep confidence in your own abilities no matter what the challenge is. We all face obstacles as we wind our way through life. Whether you're seeking success at work, creating a lasting relationship, or just trying to get unstuck in some area of your life, the quickest way to get what you want is to dive into the mess and learn your way through it.
Grit & Grind's 10-part practice provides the framework. You provide the willingness to dive in. No matter what challenges you face, no matter how messy things get, you CAN work your way through them, and things WILL be better on the other side. When you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty, and when you embrace the idea that grit and grind can be fun, nothing can stop you from achieving the life you desire.
When it comes to real life, avoidance and shortcuts will get you nowhere but stuck. Whether you’re seeking success at work, dealing with a health crisis or injury, or just trying to get “unstuck” in some other area of your life, the quickest way to get to the other side is to dive into the mess and learn your way through it.
You’re stronger than you know. You’re more capable than you give yourself credit for. No matter what challenges you face, no matter how messy things get, you CAN work your way through them, and things WILL be better on the other side. When you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty, and when you embrace the idea that some challenges might even be fun, nothing can stop you from achieving the life you desire.
The 10 principles in this book will help you develop the skills to handle whatever life throws your way while building bone-deep confidence in your own abilities. And when you gain that confidence, you’ll not only survive through the grit and grind you’ll lead others too.
