What DRIVES gritty students?

What DRIVES gritty students?
After watching Angela Lee Duckworth's TED talk I keep thinking that thought.  If you haven't watched it, here it is:

I love her honesty at 4:30 when she says "she doesn't know" how to have students have more GRIT.
Perhaps Growth Mindset?  

I honestly can not answer what Drives a gritty student? What motivates them?  This leads me to an exciting book club starting this summer from @ClassCollect.

I am not sure if this book will help me understand what motivates GRITTY students but I am excited to read a bit more about what motivates us. (Maybe this will help with the laundry?) Will this support the concept of "Genius Hour" which I have done in class.  Come join if you are interested! The book club discussions are via twitter which is also perfect because I can tweet even on VAY Kay!

Come join if you are as interested as me!
