Definition: Shrewd or spirited initiative and resourcefulness.
The most ‘successful’ and talented people around me are not born talented. They aren’t born with a success gene that other people don’t have.
They take initiative.
They try things.
They fail beautifully.
They have GUMPTION.
Gumption to try things when other people won’t. Courage to stand up and proclaim their ideas, even when confronted with naysayers. Bravery to put their ideas into actions. Determination to see their ideas to the end. A work ethic to keep them going. A consistency and relentless tenacity even in the face of adversity.
Do you have gumption?
