This will probably be the shortest explanation of a psychological structure that you will ever read. The psychology of Survival is….Do Not Give Up.
That’s it. You can strengthen your knowledge base by picking survival scenarios that you might find yourself in and then training for them; but ultimately, if something puts you outside of your comfort zone, you can either muscle up and make it through, or, you can’t. That goes for gun battle survival, wilderness survival and pretty much your entire life. Do Not Give Up.
Prepare Train Succeed.
