About Coaching for Grit


Who is Jeff Newton?

I'm passionate about helping people achieve their dreams! I've always been passionate about helping people. 

In high school I taught my friend how to drive when his parents wouldn't, as a High School Teacher myself I loved those 'A Ha' moments when the penny dropped and my student's eyes lit up. Now as a Coach I get to help people achieve their dreams everyday through lasting change. 

I also love reaching my goals, sailing on the Young Endeavour tall ship, gaining my black belt in TaeKwonDo, trekking Kokoda or learning to sail - whatever the dream; there is a path to it.

It's your life - take control

Why 'Coaching for Grit'?

As a life coach, I discovered that GRIT is everything you need to become everything you want. GRIT is all the knowledge and practical skills you need to design your life the way you want it. 

Most of us have some Grit, which is why most of us achieve some success. To get all the success you deserve, you need to get really Gritty.  I help people get that so I called my Business 'Coaching for Grit'.


What is GRIT?

Grit is an unstoppable combination of powerful human qualities:

  1. Passion
  2. Resilience 
  3. Habit
  4. Optimism 
  5. Mindset

Once all these elements come together in one person anything is possible.  Add the personal but objective support from a professional Coach and - the world really is your Oyster.
