While I’m not current instructor of outdoor survival anymore, I’m glad many of you brought this up and asked about a journey into the psychology needed to win at wilderness survival, or any type of survival for that matter. Regardless whether you are surviving a beautiful day just off the local trails, or the most brutal extreme weather and terrain on earth, the mindset is the same. Having the thoughts necessary to survive is absolutely critical to your success, and it should dictate each decision while navigating through the situation. Today I want to explore that subset of your mind to help you fully understand, and win, in the power your mind can offer to your success.
During my last journey, I remember where I walked through snow, rain, and bitter cold to burn the needed calories for that day. I didn’t let anything come between me and my required exercise. It was what made that journey as successful as it was. Ultimately arriving at running three miles a night, and walking for two nights. Week after week.
Trucks, trains, boats and planes, and now, in certain parts of the country, drones. These are the cogs of a supply chain that spans the globe moving products from the manufacturer, through the distributor, through the retail outlet, to us, the consumer, every minute of every day.

Throughout the decades of being in the security industry, I’ve had countless conversations with many individuals about the concept I call “physical injustice”. Physical injustice is identified by noting a physical difference between two parties.
In my quest to lose and maintain my weight, I have had to make several adjustments to my normal life. While none of them are truly “fun”, the understanding that they are necessary is the underlying motivation. These tasks, while some may consider them bothersome, have had to become an engrained part of my new lifestyle.
For those of us who struggle to lose, or maintain our weight, every day is a struggle to monitor and maintain daily calories. While the focus of reducing input calories is fairly easy, the “back-lash” of the mind can be as powerful as any drug addiction. If our mind believes that we are “shorting” ourselves, […]
Many of you have asked where did they go? For those of you who missed the show, let me define what preppers are/were. Shows versus reality. Let’s talk about those the stereotypes they showcased throughout the several seasons the show was on the air. The cast of the show were the extremists of the culture, but the overall idea was to make sure that their lives would continue following an international catastrophe.
