Procrastination, insecurity, and negative thinking can get in the way as well. But with the eight simple steps in Doable, anything and everything becomes possible. Ambitious teens have an incredible ally in Doable, which outlines strategies for success and includes profiles of young women who have already found it in areas like activism, entrepreneurialism, philanthropy, and more. From getting clear on what your “to-do” is to determining what success looks like and dealing with setbacks, the clear and concise tactics offered here feel like advice from a (very wise) friend, and before you know it you’ll be delivering the goods and achieving your dreams.

When the going gets tough, it’s time to get gritty. Written by a clinical-child and school psychologist and based in the latest research, The Grit Guide for Teens will help you build perseverance, resilience, self-control, and stamina. As a teen, setting and reaching goals is an important part of growing up. Whether you want to do well in school, get into a good college, make friends, excel in sports, or master the fine arts or music—you know you need to persevere in order to succeed. You’ve probably heard the term “grit” at school or from your parents, but what does it really mean? Made popular by Angela Duckworth in her New York Times bestseller, the term “grit,” embodies all the characteristics that help people accomplish the things they want, such as self-control, tenacity, and the ability to fail well. Using the skills outlined in this book, you’ll develop both grit and a growth mind-set—a way of thinking that focuses on improvement and hard work in order to achieve any goal you set for yourself. You’ll learn how to make grit an everyday habit, turn disappointments into opportunities, embrace challenges, manage stress, and be the very best version of you that you can be. Studies show that grit isn’t something you have to be born with—it can be taught and learned! This book will give you everything you need to get gritty, open your mind to all life’s possibilities, and succeed in everything you do.
