Post Collapse Survival Psychology

  • People will be used and abused for what you have, what you look like or for no reason at all.

  • Train for survival - it happens everyday.

  • Have a weapon and know how to use it.

  • Survival is life and death - when you walk out your door you are in a life and death situation if society collapses the risk will be even bigger.

  • You have to be willing to fight for your life!

  • Survival is a mental state of mind!

  • Prepare yourself: Yes I will survive, I will be prepared, and yes I can do it!

Special Notes For The Ladies

  • Don't think that you are not going to be a victim. Think that you are going to be a victim and be prepared. It probably won't be a stranger it will be someone you know and may trust.

  • Men are afraid if a lady asserts herself and gets truly strong and MAD from the inside with a conviction that nothing will stop them from defending themselves.

  • It's the mind that allows women to become a victim before they have actually become a victim.


Overcoming Extreme Stress:


  • Take a deep breath and assess your situation. You will not win against mother nature. You must learn her quarks and how to work with her.

  • Realize there is away to get out of your situation. "Don't give up!" Have hope.

  • Use your mind! There is more than one way to get stuff done. Think calmly and clearly and figure it out. Don't over complicate the situation go back to your basics.
