Survival’s “V” stands for vanquish. There is no greater enemy to your survival than fear, panic, and distress. They will destroy your ability to make intelligent decisions and drain your energy. So, how do we vanquish them? Training and practice will build confidence leading to self assuredness. Develop a motto. Two of mind are “survive, adapt, and overcome,” and “never let the bastards bring you down.” So get cracking, folks, and good luck.
