Are grit and perseverance enough to succeed? Or does someone need to give you a chance?

A leading expert on how we can find motivation and meaning, rethink assumptions and live more generous and creative lives, Grant is the No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and Originals. His forthcoming book Hidden Potential, due out in October, demonstrates how we can guide others and mold ourselves to surpass our supposed limits.
