You statement reminds of a Leo Tolstoy quote that a friend of mine 
pointed me to recently:

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing 
himself."   L.T. </quotes/quotes/l/leotolstoy105644.html>

In any case, I am rooting for grit as I am pretty sure that I am not 
long on talent :-)
