Question: So why do the majority of companies fail and only a select few succeed at becoming successful?

No – I am not talking about the popular southern breakfast dish, but the non-cognitive (subconscious) human trait that is based on an individual’s passion and motivation to accomplish their long-term goals. Grit has less to do with talent or skill, and more about the mental toughness to rise above any obstacle regardless of circumstance.
