Back in 2018 we face a business crisis, sales are dropping and so is revenue, number of resignation, etc. At first this seems like the end of it but in time I realized that in troubled times my motivation to find a way out drives me to work hard in finding the solution to the company's problem, and so I did. This makes me realize that sometimes life is like bungee jumping, you have to fall hard first before reaching for the sky
