In bad situations a large portion of society loses its grasp on positivity.  Quick to present every problem or obstacle that is in the way. Rather than thinking of the good things to take out of the situation. Appreciate the journey that needs to be taken in order to accomplish something that is great. Figure out solutions and ways to be more efficient, is the attitude to have when trying to conquer all.

Sun Tzu wrote of stories were his troops would be surrounded and outnumbered. Instead of retreated he decided to but his troops backs against the walls. Presents the soldiers their situation and ask them “ WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO? The Army realized that there was no way out  so with all the will in the heart they fought.

 

Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.” “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.   – Sun Tzu (Art Of War)
