The Strengthen Your Grit IQ Matrix explores how to fortify your mindset and develop critical habits and skills that will allow you to channel the grit you need to accomplish your goals. Grit is an inner hunger and drive built upon the foundations of consistent hard work and continuous improvement. When you have grit, you tenaciously pursue your passions for an extended period irrespective of the obstacles you face.
This map does not explore how to develop grit. For that, you need passion and perseverance. However, passion and perseverance are often not enough to achieve success.
With that in mind, what this map does do is show you how to strengthen your grit. For that, you will need clarity of mind, enthusiasm, a structured schedule, and the ability to influence other people. Only with these components in place will your grit be strong enough to carry you through the adversity and struggles you are likely to face as you work toward your goals.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Strengthen Your Grit mind map.
CLARIFY: Grit is about knowing what you want and working hard toward those things for an extended period. The first branch of this map helps you gain the clarity needed to accomplish your goals. It guides you on how to unlock your passions, get clear about your desired outcomes, and how to find more meaning and purpose in life. Having clarity in these areas is the first component that will help you fortify your grit.
NURTURE ENTHUSIASM: The second component for strengthening your grit comes down to the generation of energy. Specifically, this is about nurturing the enthusiasm you need to keep yourself focused, motivated, and positive over the long-term. The second branch of this map walks you through how to nurture that enthusiasm each day for an extended period with a big focus on creation, challenge, and contribution.
SCHEDULE: Your grit is only as strong as the building blocks that make up the structure of your day. When you have a definitive schedule and plan for the day, you can better organize your time and focus on the things that matter. Moreover, it helps you maintain consistency over time, which is a key component for living with grit. The third branch of this map walks you through how to schedule and structure your day around critical routines, rituals, and habits that will help you accomplish your goals.
BECOME AN INFLUENCER: Having grit is not enough to be successful. You also need social intelligence, communication skills, and the ability to influence other people. The final branch of this map guides you on the importance of enlisting a team and rallying people behind a captivating vision. When you have the support of a strong team behind you, that will only strengthen your grit.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for strengthening your grit, desire, tenacity, and determination for goal achievement. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
