The bottom line is that self-discipline beats IQ. It is useless to have great results and a high IQ if a child by university age can’t motivate themselves out of bed.
In The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, he argues:
Dozens of studies show that will-power is the single most important keystone habit for individual success.
Students who exerted high levels of willpower were more likely to earn higher grades in their classes and gain admission into more selective schools. They had fewer absences and spent less time watching television and more hours on homework.
“Highly self-disciplined adolescents outperformed their more impulsive peers on every academic-performance variable,” the researchers wrote.
“Self-discipline predicted academic performance more robustly than did IQ. Self-discipline also predicted which students would improve their grades over the course of the school year, whereas IQ did not.… Self-discipline has a bigger effect on academic performance than does intellectual talent.”
