Relationship between Grit and Flourishing among NCC and NON-NCC Students
Life’s success is not solely dependent on intelligence, talent, skill or ability. Every individual strives towards becoming an epitome of success in his/her respective field. However, the crucial element in this journey is the perseverant effort that an individual puts in. This study is conducted to find out the relationship between Grit and Flourishing in under graduation students. Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals (Duckworth, 2013). Happiness, flow, meaning, love, gratitude, accomplishment, growth, better relationships constitutes human flourishing (Seligman, 2011). Non-Probability Purposive Sampling and Snowball Sampling techniques were employed to select 240 undergraduate students in the 1st and 3rd years aged between 16-21 years from the city of Hyderabad, India. The Short Grit Scale: Grit-S (Duckworth, Peterson, Matthews, & Kelly; 2007) and the Flourishing Scale (Diener et al., 2010) were administered. Data analysis revealed a significant difference in the levels of grit and flourishing between 1st and 3rd year NCC students. The results also revealed a significant correlation between Grit and Flourishing. Thus, including NCC training in the under-graduation curriculum is facilitative of overall flourishing in students.
