Survival’s “V” means value living. In a survival situation with all its discomforts, stresses, and inconveniences placing a high value on living is vital! The mind is not only your greatest tool, but it can also be detrimental to your survival. Allow just one small negative thought to take root, and a downhill slide will begin if not put in check. Like the first “V” for vanquish fear and panic, we must also vanquish negative thoughts. Never, never, never give in.
