Let’s change the way we look at crisis
“The other side of crisis” is about taking another look at crisis seasons to change the way we see them. When we change the way we see crisis, we’ll change the way we react. When we change the way we react, we’ll change our results. One of the great benefits of being human is that we have the power to change our output by changing our input.
Perspective directs action, and the action could lead to either progression or regression. Perspective also informs and directs strategy. You start thinking of the how. Whether your perspective is positive or negative, your actions will show. You will either prepare to capture and capitalise, or look for the first and easiest way out of the situation. Not all perspectives are commendable, however. When you choose to run away from the crisis situation, you are no longer able to think about how to capitalise.
It is our hope that this book reminds every reader that crisis is not the end, but rather, the birth-point of the most creative ideas and innovations that may lead to prosperity and well-being. As the saying goes, “There are two sides to every story.” There are two sides to every crisis. May this book help you to see “the other side.”
