In a recent post How to make your home more resilient?, Alex from Australia wrote:

for survivalist, the most valuable thing is will power, the next is knowledge, the least is possessions.


And although I agree with the statement, I realized that having a supportive mindset would be on top of my list…

What mindsets, beliefs or attitudes you find supportive and willing to share with us?

A few of mine are in the first comment…

A few of the things that I’ve reprogrammed my mind in the last years in preparation for a SHTF situation are:

1. The most important part of the “The End of the World as We Know It” is “As We Know It” - meaning (for me) that it’s not the world ending, but the old and familiar ways that would disappear…

2. Trust is not about trusting that “everything will be ok at the end”, but trusting that “everything IS ok the way it is”

3. Most people when they consider the SHTF situation are stuck in one of the 5 stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance)… but we need to move to the sixth stage… Resilience.

4. The end of the world as we know it is an amazing opportunity to be forced by necessity to live the way we probably should have been living in the first place.

5. Collapse is the worst possible time to suffer a nervous breakdown, so it’s better to get ready ahead of time.
