How Character is Forged according to Og Mandino

This Og Mandino Group quote was taken from page 159 of "Aspire" book from Kevin Hall (review here). I think it properly illustrate how Character is formed. See below:

"Our character has been forged in the furnace of adversity. We know what pain feels like. We cannot change the past. However, we can choose to use these reference points as a rich resource to assist us in better understanding and connecting with people. When we use our life experiences in the service of others, we will finally find purpose in our suffering, joy in our journey and much needed healing in our souls."
-Og Mandino Group

After a quick Google search, turns out "Og Mandino" is an ex military turned public speaker with a few books under his sleeves. If interested, check it out here.
