"In the end, it won't be how you walked in the sun - but how you handled the storm - that will determine your success."

Quote from Yasmin Mogahed

In the end, it won't be how you walked in the sun - but how you handled the storm - that will determine your success.
How you managed the darkness inside and outside yourself.
It won't be about how you ran.
It'll be about how you fell, then got back up.
It won't be about your wins.
It'll be about how you took defeat.
Not about how you performed when strong, 
but how you did while bound and broken.
It won't be about your ability to walk.
It will be about your willingness to crawl - even when you're hopeless.
Not about what you did when you won.
But who were you after you lost.
Again.
Because character isn't made on shore.
Character is born in the waves.
The crushing kind.
The kind that tell you to give up because what's the point of trying and falling again.
The kind that tell you the ocean's too mighty for you, and you don't stand a chance.
You see, heroes aren't known by their trophies.
They're known by their scars.
