If you're trying to get your company on the path to greatness, you'll eventually face a crisis where you'll need to use advice from this chapter.

I understand confronting the brutal facts means don't be overly optimistic so much that you don't pay attention to the bullet coming at you.

I'm wondering what separates people into the 3 groups affected by a crisis: never recover, recover to normal, recover to better than before?

Furthermore I'm wondering how you evaluate where you are in those groups, and how to move yourself to the last group so you emerge better than before. Is it all positive self-talk and disciplined thought?

i.e. how do you never lose faith that you'll win, no matter how long it takes, especially when you are up against some hard situations?

"How do you never lose faith that you'll win" - the answer to that is contained in the question. "Faith". "Faith" requires a leap over gaps in empirical evidence.

"Furthermore I'm wondering how you evaluate where you are in those groups," without pause I know I'm in the third group. If you're having trouble evaluating it may be you haven't lived through enough crises, and if that's the case, you may have hiterto lived a charmed life or never taken enough risks.

It may be because I've been tempered by crises early in life and had only the choice to be in group #3 or perish.

"Furthermore I'm wondering how you evaluate where you are in those groups, and how to move yourself to the last group so you emerge better than before. Is it all positive self-talk and disciplined thought?"
How do you move yourself to the last group - just make the decision deep inside yourself that you're in the last group. Learn from mistakes. If you're not making ANY mistakes, you're going too slow.

Good luck.

So I guess it IS all positive self-talk and disciplined thought...
