Finding Opportunity in the Chinese Language

Did you know that the Chinese word for “crisis” (危机) is composed of two characters, one meaning “danger” (危) and the other meaning “opportunity” (机)?

This concept of finding opportunity in difficult circumstances can be a powerful motivator for personal growth and business strategy.
