A crisis is a learning and growing opportunity. For example, some investors consider the financial crisis of 2008 their biggest buying opportunity. Disasters come in different forms and can be very damaging on an emotional level if they are personal, or affect your self-esteem and lead to depression if they are work related. No matter the nature of the trouble, you should process it the best you can, drawing lessons and adjusting your mindset. Every struggle gives you an opportunity to look at things differently. For financiers, that could mean time to restructure and diversify. Personal struggles could rearrange your values and be a wake-up call to pursuing your dreams with more intensity. PR crises can prompt you to address outstanding issues laying a more solid foundation for future growth.
