Review Quotes

I feel as if this is a good book parents and educators alike which stays true to your company. Additionally, I think it will benefit educators, especially teachers who are becoming burned out and losing their passion for teaching.

-Krystal, Educator & Parent

It is awesome! I love your approach to using character development to maximize cognitive development.

-George, Educator & Parent

That is a very timely message. So many students (adults too) struggle with the Grit aspect [of learning].

-Mike, Educator

Your approach definitely seems much different from what I traditionally saw with the school system. It sounds like you’ve sprinkled some Montessori, personal development (absolutely necessary and wonderful element) and Singapore into your mix...

- Natasha, Parent & Former Educator

I like that you talk about who influences your way of thinking.

-Kesha, Parent & Former Educator

Excerpts from the Book

If our motivation is internal, then we face obstacles, make mistakes, learn from them, conquer them, and get back to work. We fail forward and recover quickly.

-Jillian Smart, Cultivating Grit

When we make motivation and character development and growth mindset and grit part of our lives, we set our children up for success. We equip them to become more confident learners, more confident individuals. 

-Jillian Smart, Cultivating Grit

A higher level of motivation is important to facilitating college readiness, and understanding motivation is valuable when becoming career ready.

-Jillian Smart, Cultivating Grit
