- Breathe. Allow oxygen into your lungs and brain before proceeding any further.
- Focus. Stay in control and wait for the air to clear before doing anything else.
- Get the full picture. Examine the situation as much as you can as quickly as you can.
- Focus on the what first and the who later. In the middle of a crisis - you have to deal with the what. Deal with what is right in front of you.
There is nothing wrong with being in a crisis situation. Crises are sent to test you. You have the choice to become stronger through crisis - or let someone else become stronger instead of you.
Use crisis to show people what you are really made of!
