If you're familiar with Chinese news especially the Business section, you'd see that times of crisis are normally being used as a stepping stone to achieving greater success in future.

The word "crisis" is written as 危机 in the Chinese language.
If you break the words, the word 危 means dangers. While the word 机 means opportunity.
Showing that 危(danger) = 机(opportunity)

Lets take the share market as an example. The market is dropping drastically. People are selling, when there's no demand, the price drops so to attract people to take up the shares. When the economy recovers, the prices of the share might also recover meaning that the current price is higher than when you invested meaning that you've made a profit.

This example is based on a high school student's point of view and so further analysis of how the market works have not been done.

My point is,
Do you agree that times of crisis are opportunities?Why?

Most people are opportunistic.
Perhaps it's human nature, or this is what humans have evolved into.

I am not surprised that people will take advantage of crises. Not at all.
There is always a time for opportunity and rest assured, someone will exploit it by all means.

This is a very valid point.

Times of crisis are times of opportunity. We in America need to step up and be Americans today. The reason we are so epic right now is our ability in the past to change crisis into opportunity, and its time to show the world that we still got it.

Yes, because times of crisis are the opportunity to show people how well you handle the crisis, and how strong you are to get over that crisis

ya i think most times it holds true.

Like the share market as you said. But of course there are also a lot time when a crisis turns from something bad to something worse.

But it IS an opportunity. If you decide to risk it and succeded you would be rewarded greatly. Nothing profits more than buy low sell high. It's just like every other opportunity though. Might work or might not.

LOL

Times of crisis simply afford greater opportunities with greater risks.

I agree, but you really can't shrug off the "danger" half, either. You shouldn't run around like a rii-rii, but you shouldn't get all smug and excited about it. Crisis is something you need to respect, understanding that they can go both ways based on things that will probably be out of your control.

DANG, this is going to take some brain power...ok..here we go

A crisis is an opportunity riding the dangerous wind

Seeds of faith are always within us; sometimes it takes a crisis to nourish and encourage their growth.


Without the strength to endure the crisis, one will not see the opportunity within. It is within the process of endurance that opportunity reveals itself.

America is only America because of the people that took control of the opportunities during the world wars.
