SurvivalTab is your guide to tips, hacks and news on survival.
The survival of unusual circumstances is something that most, if not all of us, will have to deal with at some point in our lives. Change in circumstances, for better or worse, can happen to any or all of us at any time.
How we deal with these changes is what will determine the outcome of the situations. For many of us, the word ’survival’ spring to mind when we think about a camping adventure or getting lost in the woods, but there is much more to the word than just that.
Let’s first take a look at the meaning of the word ’survival’. The Dictionary.com defines the word as:
The act of or fact of surviving (continuing to live), especially under adverse or unusual circumstances.
This brings us to the question, “What exactly are adverse or unusual circumstances?” Well, have you ever thought about how you and your family will deal with a sudden economic collapse, especially in light of the turbulent times we live in?
Those kind of circumstances will most definitely be unusual or and the potential of personal harm will be ever present. Now we won’t just be worried about the dark, wild animals or finding food, but we will be faced with an array of new predicaments and each one of these predicaments will offer a definite challenge.
Fortunately it is not all doom and gloom. Mankind has survived millennia of adverse circumstances and we are no different. What do you need for the survival of any kind of unusual situation? For example, situations like camping-gone-wrong, hiking a challenging trail, spending a few days in the woods or an economic meltdown that will turn our towns and cities into a wilderness.
We need knowledge! The know-how to make due with what is at hand. In other words, we have to learn survival skills. Knowledge that will not only teach us practical survival skills, but knowledge that will help us to attain and manage a survival state of mind.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
