Crisis or Opportunity?

In this short video you will discover a simple way to view any problem or difficult situation in a new way, so you can overcome it more easily.

Its only human to want to avoid problems, but how you view a crisis can determine how quickly and how easily you can overcome it.

In this short video you will discover a simple way to view any problem or difficult situation in a new way, so you can overcome it more easily.

So when you experience something really difficult in life, do you view it as a crisis or as an opportunity? Hi, my name is Mike Pettigrew. I'm bestselling author and a serial entrepreneur since 1987. And I help ordinary people achieve extraordinary goals, but probably not in the way you might think. So when disaster strikes, when things are really difficult, do you view it as a crisis, or as an opportunity? Well, if you look at the Chinese character for crisis, it also means opportunity. And as Napoleon Hill, the author of the amazing bestseller Think and grow rich" wrote about a hundred years ago, that in every crisis lies the seed of an equal or greater opportunity. And if you look at the lives of the most successful people - people who have transformed society, the most influential people you'll find that they went through all sorts of crisis or crises, but they didn't give up.

That's the crucial thing here, not giving up when things are difficult. In fact, often a great success is preceded by great failure. Failure can actually be springboard to success. To be honest, looking back over my own life, there have been so many challenges I've had. It's so many huge challenges at different junctures of my life, but they have been the things that have taught me the greatest lessons. They have been - those problems were the springboard for a new level of understanding, a new level of empowerment and a new level of abundance. Now it wasn't instant. It wasn't instant, but I think it's a truth to say, most people like to run away from a crisis situation. It's human nature, but the next time you encounter something really challenging and you want to run away. What matters here is your resilience and you know what your dominant thoughts and your dominant emotions actually determines the outcome of any situation.

So if you're viewing something negatively and pessimistically, you're actually limiting the different types of possibility. You're limiting how that situation can change. But if you are looking at that situation as an opportunity for growth and empowerment, you will see all sorts of possible ways of changing that situation that you didn't before. So when things are difficult, you need to ask yourself questions like "what if?" rather than "I can't". And if you take the time to study the world's most successful people, you will find that they are people who ask this question "What if" far more than "I can't" because it's human nature to say, "Oh, I can't change this", or "I can't achieve that". But when you ask yourself, "what if I could?", Then it opens the door of possibility. So I have a very powerful - a very simple, but very powerful suggestion to make to you the next time you're in a crisis situation, ask yourself "What 10 things can this crisis situation teach me?"

What can I learn from this crisis situation? Write out 10 - 10 things that you can learn because I can guarantee whatever it is that we go through in life, there are all sorts of things that it is teaching us about ourselves. If we take the care and time to approach it from that, from that angle. The other thing that I'd like you to do is write out a hundred, yes, a hundred ways that you can change the situation. A hundred ways that you can change the situation. And what this does, is it literally forces out of your own subconscious mind solutions. When you brainstorm 100 different ways that you can change the situation, you'll be amazed to find that just the act of getting started kickstarts your creativity and this inner wisdom. Your creativity is activated more powerfully when you start writing out these hundred ways.

Even if you only come up with 20 or 30 ways, at least pulling those ideas out of your mind, more ideas will come to the fore and you'll be amazed how quickly you can change the your way of viewing that crisis situation into an opportunity and see the benefits from the situation. And then your whole viewpoint towards that situation will completely change and you will be empowered to transform the situation. So I hope this short video has helped you.
