Most of the folks who have been through some serious and life threatening situations and survive gonna tell you one thing: they survive it with mental strength.
Also all survival instructors gonna say that first thing in any survival situation to have is will to survive.
It is easy to say today “I will survive!” but great majority of people do not know what will to survive actually means.
In my time I did see some folks who just lay down and had lost will for life. They just gave up.
When it comes to survival you have to focus on what you are good at, and some people are just good at working with other people or maybe dealing or playing with other people.
The mainstream media gives everyone some picture how real survivalist need to look and act. That’s wrong. Today I talk about a smart type of real survivalist.
