Daily Inspiration: Nitty-Gritty


Who will get in, who won’t?  We’re not talking about heaven, we’re talking about a place even more selective: West Point. The U.S. Military Academy has roughly 1300 slots and over 11,000 applicants. The admissions process is further complicated by the fact that they accept no transfer students. If a cadet drops out or flunks out, the spot is wasted for the remainder of the four years until graduation.

There’s a lot at stake when it comes to evaluating candidates. So how does one of the world’s most prestigious institutions make good choices about who gets in?  They give the grit test. It’s a questionnaire that determines a candidate’s stick-to-it-ness. Nearly all the applicants have superb academic, athletic and leadership skills.  But not everyone has the tenacity to make it through four years of rigorous study and training.

While grit is an important quality for West Point cadets, being more fluid may be a better way for you to live your life. Maybe you’re in a situation where sticking it out isn’t in your best interest. Knowing when to move on and being able to accept change can come in handy when you’re faced with a big decision. 

Spend a few minutes understanding what makes you tick. Take the Grit Test and learn how you rank on the gritty scale. Use the information to think deeply about the best way to improve your response to both change and stability.  Finally, share your insight with God. Through prayer you’ll gain the strength you need to stay gritty or call it quits.  May you be blessed with the resolve you’re searching for.

Take the Grit Test NOW!

The archangel loved heights. Standing on the summit of the tower that crowned his church, wings upspread, sword uplifted, the devil crawling beneath, and the cock, symbol of eternal vigilance, perched on his mailed foot, Saint Michael held a place of his own in heaven and on earth... end quote
