Do you have what it takes to survive? There's a huge difference between knowing how to survive and having the right mindset to it. We read books, watch videos and even share the knowledge to our friends and family members, but in real life scenarios, are you able to apply it?
Or are you just as useless as the person who doesn't have knowledge at all?
To truly be able to survive, knowledge is not enough. Although your knowledge in survival does help, it won't be much of use when you're shaking in fear. Many people with little to no survival training at all managed to survive even the most horrific situations when no one would have expected it.
So what's the secret?

The article below discusses how you can prepare yourself to almost any survival situations.
Developing a Survival Mindset
The key to your survival, in any stressful situation, is your ability to manage your thoughts, your anxiety and your fears. Your ability to take control of your mind is paramount to your ability to survive. The reactions that your body will experience in a survival situation, when used in a healthy way, can actually propel you into doing things you never dreamed possible.
There are a couple of things that you can do to ensure your ability to handle stressful situations.
Check your Ego at the Door
Don’t give in to, “it will never happen to me” thinking. People often fool themselves into thinking that they have no fears, especially men. Most men consider fear to be a weakness; so much so, that a lot of them never admit, or analyze their own fears.
Even the strongest man in the world can’t escape their body’s reaction to a stressful situation. It’s wired into our DNA and is a natural part of the human condition.
Don’t pretend that you have no fears. Instead, truthfully analyze what things would cause the most anxiety should you be forced into a survival situation. By analyzing your fears, you can begin to train yourself in those areas of concern, and build confidence that can help you through those fearful situations.
Cultivate a positive mental attitude
The ability to maintain a positive mental attitude during a survival situation is something that needs to be taking seriously. It’s also something that you need to start working on now. Being able to maintain a positive attitude in a stressful situation takes practice. It’s not an easy thing to master, but once you do, it will be well worth the effort.

Survival is not just about the tools, equipment and knowledge about survival. You, as a survivalist, should have the right mindset to it. Be ready to face any scenario regardless of the situation.
Remember that even a person without any survival knowledge will be able to survive as long as he puts his mind to it.
Manage your thoughts, anxiety and fears. When you control your mind that things you would never thought possible, can be possible with a simple mind shift. Fear is not a weakness. Don't pretend that you have no fears, instead deal with the situation and train yourself to build confidence and reduce or eliminate that fear.
Until next time…
Take care and God bless
