In the Chinese language, the concept of crisis is depicted by two characters (Wei Ji). The first character (Wei) represents danger, while the second character (Ji) represents opportunity. These two characters together connote the idea that a crisis situation is dangerous, but it also provides an opportunity for positive change.
“I have learned to view setbacks as learning opportunities.”
“I can create a ‘Vision Statement’ and add a ‘Step-by-step Action Plan.’”
“I am my own living experiment.”
