How grit affects your everyday life!
Describing and Comparing Grit
Problem and Solution of Grit
A problem is when there is a sense of uncertainty, a question that involves doubt or difficulty. A question that craves an answer. So what do you do when that answer is not easily achievable. Do you ask a friend, maybe even a member of your family, or even someone at work. Maybe, you just are complacent with the way things are and just give up. But if you really want to solve a problem, you are going to go into your grit reserve and solve the problem yourself. If your problem is that your sink has a leak that will not stop, you will not call for a plumber, you will get out your tools and fix that leak yourself, You know why you were able to solve that, because you had grit. The main difficulty though is realizing when your problem really needs a solution. In the Indian Folktale, The Sandy Road, the problem is that the merchant group had to yield because they ran out of all food and water. Since, one of the merchants saw this as a big problem in the middle of the desert, he had resolve and walked by himself until he found grass, from there the merchant dug down until he found a well of water and was able to get his group and make them not idle anymore and got them to safety.They triumphed! The dilemma was that the group did not have any supplies, and the solution was that the merchant took it into his own hands and saved the group from harm. Without the grit that the merchant felt during that moment, he would have never have been able to save the group he was traveling with. If, the merchant did not get up and use his grit, then the group never would have been able to survive and reach their destination.

How does grit have effects in everyday life
Causes make something happen, and an effect is the aftermath of the cause. So when you are feeling down, are you going to wait for someone to cause you to do something. Or are you going to cause yourself to do something? So say you are doing homework and you have five tests tomorrow, what causes you to feel overwhelmed? In the story about Eleanor Roosevelt her noble husband Franklin was a very important politician. Franklin was diagnosed with polio which caused his advisers to rethink his running for presidency. Franklin continued, even though he could not walk, for his presidency. All caused by Eleanor’s eloquent forcefulness, inspiration, and conviction that Franklin can do it.Eleanor adhered by Franklin's' side. If Eleanor did not have the urge to cause Franklin to keep fighting he never would have been affected by it. He would have given up. Sometimes though you need to feel the grit and passion of to cause your own body to start feeling the grit and to persevere yourself. If the cause is grit, what does that effect. It affects the way you act, the way you think, and the way you talk. It causes you to be different, to desire the passion for the long term goal. It gives you ambition, that long term desire. The impact is not always visible because the result is not always physical.
