He said that we can become stronger at our broken places if we choose to learn from our mistakes, correct our course, and try again.
“The world breaks everyone and afterward, many are strong at the broken places.”Ernest Hemingway/ Novel, Farewell to Arms

“If you’re willing to accept failure and learn from it, if you’re willing to consider failure as a blessing in disguise and bounce back, you’ve got the potential of harnessing one of the most powerful success forces.”Joseph Sugarman (Author and Entrepreneur)
