“Life is truly known only to those who suffer, lose, endure adversity, and stumble from defeat to defeat.”
Ryszard Kapuscinski, in “Warsaw Diary” 1985
The person I am today has been forged through adversity. A failed business, failed relationships, financial ruin, and a major health issue, and yet through all of it, there have been times of great achievement. This is life.
As a serial entrepreneur, I have tasted it all. Now in my 84th year, I am a true beliver in the saying “What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.”
This month’s curated quote on adversity is a story about life. Every person goes through periods of adversity. In a particularly defeated time of my life, I was struck by Sir Winston Churchill’s quote – “When you are going through hell – keep going.”
Onward to us all!!!
