"If one reads enough books one has a fighting chance.
Or better, one's chances of survival increase with each book one reads."
- Sherman Alexie
Mental and Physical Preparedness
"What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve."
- Napoleon Hill
One of the guiding principles of the Ultimate Survival Project is some people will do everything to survive, but everybody can do something." What that means is that there will always be those who have been specially trained in survival skills, whether that is from a military background, a chosen profession, or personal choice. But, being prepared for an emergency or natural disaster doesn't mean you have to be a Navy SEAL, or have access to unlimited resources, or have a degree in emergency management. With a little confidence, creativity and the right knowledge, you can be prepared and increase your odds of survival in any disaster or emergency.
