The ability to lead becomes incredibly apparent during times of crisis. The 2009 global financial system meltdown is a good case in point. Watching good and bad leaders during times of crisis provides us with lessons on how to act when faced with our own moments of crisis.
Some people think that investing in stocks is as easy as going to a 7-eleven convenience store and buying what you want. However, in my opinion, to be able to become successful in investing in stocks you need to have a proper knowledge and proper discipline.

A crisis is defined as a time of intense difficulty or danger. In the case of diseases, it is the turning point of a disease, when it becomes clear whether the patient will recover or not. It is evident in the definition that a crisis is not a desirable state. One would choose not to have to solve a crisis and a live a crisis-free life but that is not possible. Daily you meet crisis of varying shapes, forms and proportions. Some are individual (affecting you personally) and some are of a national or global coverage such as the ongoing fight with the AIDS epidemic. The goal is to find the quickest and most effective method of bringing the state of affairs back to normal. This alone explains the efforts from every sector of the world, be it donor community, research scientists, governments and corporate to bring a lasting solution to this one type of crisis. Your crisis may not be as prevalent as the epidemic but the fact remains that it is state you would desire to move out of. I have faced crisis after crisis in my life but I have emerged out of every crisis sharper, wiser and more experienced. Some of the crisis I faced taught me endurance, persistence, optimism and courage.

I answer the question from what I have learned under crisis below.
