What is FEEL? Feel is having awareness of what is going on around you as well as your own thinking/behavior. If you have feel, you have high awareness of these things. Feel is not to be mistaken with not being accepting of others, it just means having high awareness of what thinking/behavior yields success most frequently in today’s society.
Feel is all about awareness. Awareness is a trait that can be developed. It requires you to be present and ‘in the moment’ with whatever you are doing at the time as well as being mindful of your thoughts and truly knowing who you are, what you are all about and how you want to represent yourself.
What is GRIT? Grit is all about tenacity and resiliency. ALL successful people have a high degree of grit with regards to how they go about their business on a day to day basis. Having grit requires the ability to remain calm, steady and optimistic in the face of failure/hardship and to never give up. Some of the ‘grittiest’ athletes that come to my mind are Michael Jordan, John Elway and Dustin Pedroia.
Grit is simply a mindset and a way of thinking that comes with having a clear purpose for ‘why you do what you do.’ If you stick to that purpose and find a way to always believe in yourself/your team no matter what circumstance you face you’d be able to overcome any obstacle in your path. Gritty people don’t know the words Can’t, Never and Hopeless. They avoid excuses and focus on solutions rather than problems.
