Situation bring out the best and worst in people. Natural disasters bring with them stories of great heroism – but also looting and rioting. When great weight is on the world, powerful moments present opportunities to make great gains. Everything is in a state of flux. One can either move in the direction of positive change and improvement or towards stagnation.
This may be the moment you have been waiting for. Although the current challenge may seem to be more than you can handle, remember that a flood reaches its highwater mark for only a few brief moments, and then begins to subside. Action must be taken now to ensure opportunities for success later on. You will never discover the true extent of your own abilities unless you, at least once in your life, dive into a crisis with complete abandon, dedicating every ounce of your energy, every fiber of your being, to the cause at hand.
When embarking on an ambitious undertaking in turbulent times, the wise take great care in the beginning. Proper planning, the laying of a good foundation, is often neglected in the excitement of the moment; such an oversight, if it cannot be avoided, will undoubtedly cause problems later.
