Exellence can be build with grit in doing something until it is end up. It is like doing that something and imagine it become your passion. Passion that you do for a long run, or Dr. Angela D. Call this step " Marathon". Dr. Angela Duckworth say that this is life, we have to gritty to achieve our goal because life is a marathon, not a sprint.
