G.R.I.T. - Give, Recognize, Implement, Time® & Flipping Your G.R.I.T. Switch

G.R.I.T. – Give, Recognize, Implement, Time® is our signature evidence-based cognitive behavioral approach which gets to the very heart of what helps people be successful. Successful in empowering themselves through building confidence. Successful in overcoming negativity from within themselves and others, which serve as roadblocks to achieving what they want. And, successful in creating the clarity around what they truly want and the right path for them to achieve it. In short, it helps people stay focused, overcome, and achieve!


Give yourself permission to be human. We all have our ups and downs and are not alone in our struggles. There is hope; there is a way forward!


Recognize we always have a choice and it is ours to make. We can either let our non-serving thoughts, feelings, and behaviors keep us down and negative, or, we can embrace their opposites which serves us and carve our own way forward, lifting us up and keeping us positive.


Implement small steps to create small wins which lay a foundation and build the momentum upon which our success is built.


Time is needed to literally rewire our brains to lessen the neural pathways which don’t serve us and create the ones which do, helping us embody our new way of being.

Give, Recognize, Implement, Time isn’t a one and done step-wise process; it’s a journey!

A journey which gets to the heart of what empowers us and helps us overcome the negativity which stands in our way of achieving what we want. This journey is what we like to call “flipping your G.R.I.T. switch” because it helps people realize they HAVE what they need within them to reach their goals, and they ARE capable of using it, just like flipping on a switch.

Why is “Flipping Your
G.R.I.T. Switch
” Important?

Today, we are very action focused. We want to see results immediately and are driven to take action right now, even if it is not the right action for us, we are not ready to take action, or it’s too much action at once.

As the image to the right shows, our actions – our behaviors – don’t live in isolation; they are tied to a number of other characteristics of who we are. When we have thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and/or feelings which are tied to our behavior, solely focusing on what action to take does not get to the heart of what will make that action successful and help us reach our goals. We must address the underlying thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and feelings that go along with it. Furthermore, we need to address the support we give ourselves and what we tell ourselves, our self-talk (e.g., our communication).

Moreover, we aren’t the only ones who come into play. The other people in our lives, as well as the environments we surround ourselves in, can affect the way we feel, think, and behave.

Flipping our G.R.I.T. switch, e.g., going through G.R.I.T. – Give, Recognize, Implement, Time® is important because it helps us address ALL of the underlying characteristics of us, and the way others and our environments influence them, in order to achieve our goals and create the long lasting success we seek.
