Abstract: Resilience has often been regarded as a precursor to positive and stable mental functioning even in the face of negative stimulus. Grit is shown to be a predictor of achievement through perseverance of effort and consistency of interest. It is possible that above and beyond the ability to adapt and cope, resilience may contribute to greater achievement attainment. Specifically, I predict that resilience is positively related to grit and that mindfulness moderates and strengthens this relationship. I conducted a study with 58 undergraduates and found that higher predisposition in resilience is positively associated with higher levels of grit. However, I did not find an interaction effect of mindfulness and resilience on persistence. Additional tests of persistence using unsolvable anagrams yield inconclusive results. Implications for this study are discussed in this article.
