Surviving in the real world comes down to one thing; having the ability to overcome. You must develop a mindset of controlling your fears so they do not inhibit your actions. Your mindset must allow you to not only perform to the best of your abilities but to also take responsibility for your actions.
You must know your enemy. A thug is not your friend, your buddy or your next door neighbor. They are a person or persons who have no regrets or sympathy when it comes to robbing, raping, murdering or performing any other anti social devestating action against you. If they perceive you as weak or vulnerable they will attack. You must be prepared to stop them immediately and be able to properly defend yourself.
The argument to submit to criminals and give them what they want is a false one. What if the problem escalates? What if they aren’t satisfied with what you give them? You need to be prepared to stop a criminal’s aggression by whatever means necessary in defense of your life. Remember there are no re-do’s if you are the victim of a violent rape or murder.
Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Do not look like or act like a victim and do not have a victim’s mentality. Pay attention to what your senses are telling you and react accordingly. If you feel you are being observed with criminal intent you probably are. Visualize how you would react to any given criminal scenario as repeated visualization helps with your defensive preparations. Know the best strike points to quickly disable an attacker and choose and train accordingly with your self defense weapons.
You can see all 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page. Go ahead and purchase one or more over at Amazon.com. They are really quite interesting and entertaining to read if I do say so myself.
