In this episode we discuss: "Having A Positive Mental Attitude and Survival Mindset, And Dealing With Stress"
"Having A Positive Attitude And A Survival Mindset"
"A positive mental attitude will not let you do anything, but it will let you do everything better than a negative attitude will". - Zig Ziglar
" Whatever the mind can conceive, and believe, the mind can achieve" - Napolean Hill
"We become what we think about" - Earl Nightingale
We all know people who are so negative that we often hate to see them coming. We also know people who are so positive, to quote Ziglar again, they "would go after Moby Dick and take the tarter sauce with them."
In such a time when we need to use our preps or put our emergency plans into action, the stresses mount up. Stress can impede our performance in areas of memory, decision making, and multitasking, as well as increase fatigue.
Two basic types of stress: chronic stress and acute stress.
Remove the stress, if possible
Take some deep breaths
Take a break
Break things down in to smaller tasks
Count to 10 before speaking or responding
Take a break from news & social media
Develop Regular routines
Prepping relieves stress & worry
Make a plan and work your plan
Train to handle acute stress
The mind doesn't know the difference between visualization and the actual doing of a thing.
A Survival mindset says, "I am ready, I will prevail"
A survival mindset is the prepper mindset. We decide ahead of time that we will survive most any situation and that we will do what it takes to protect our family.
Decide ahead of time what you will do.
Acknowledge there will be stress
Plan for the stress
Plan a course of action
What are you willing to do to save your family or to save your own life?
Are you willing to turn others away when there is little food?
Are you willing to take another's life?
We decide ahead of time that we wont let the situation drag us down.
We prepare. We train.
We visualize scenarios so that when we get there we are prepared because in our minds, we have already been there.
Find ways to relieve your stress
Have some fun
