An event in which an individual strives to realize a certain objective is called endeavor. Life is a sequence of continuous and countless endeavors. Any endeavor or struggle requires efforts from human beings and consumes energy upon execution. Humans are not impeccable, they have confined energy and fragile control over life events. Moreover, human beings have certain limitations, physical and mental. A person may not be able to predict or counter some threats or challenges during endeavors. The limitations of humans bring about unaccounted failures or crises.

Crises can be categorized into three levels; mild, mediocre and severe. Mild crises are minor complications that can be resolved on account of agile engagement with the problem. Mediocre crises are a tipping point of any life event; they require swift and wise counteractions. At the stage of severe crisis or disaster, the magnitude of the problem shoots to its apex and manifests its consequences at large.

Crises can be reverted or managed, nevertheless. It is noteworthy, there is no hard and fast rule to discover the origin of any crisis or stringent guideline to crisis management. Sometimes disasters befall by nature to fulfill certain Divine Ideals.
