We are familiar with this tamil Proverb:இடுக்கண் வருங்கால் நகுக‌In Management Philosophy also we Know what is SWOTanalysis in which S=Strength, W=Weaknesse, O=opportunities, T=Threat. When there is threatto the very existence (through competitors, Government's new steps, war etc) it is wiser to work for converting Threatin to Opportunity-not only for survival but also to grow.Raju

Hope in adversity One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off! Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up. Remember the five simple rules to be happy: 1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.4. Give more.5. Expect less "Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people."--
