Developing a Survival Attitude (Part 2) A follow up discussion with Dr. Bohman on the critical need to develop the right attitude.
What's in your head and heart ultimately determines whether you make it or not. It’s vital to cultivate hope, which then supports a true survival attitude. If you lose hope, you're as good as dead in a survival situation.
Hope forms the foundation for mental, emotional, and psychological resilience, from which comes the ability to recover from misfortune. Resilience and adaptability are key attributes needed to survive worse case situations. To know ahead of time how you are doing in advance of a life threatening disaster, honestly consider how you look at the world and the challenging situations you end up in. Practice being filled with positive expectations and hope in all situations.
Dr. Fred Bohman loves learning new things every day and believes he can learn something from everyone he comes in contact with. He speaks fluent Spanish and has lived and worked in 27 countries in Europe, Central and South America. He was one of the first Peace Corp Volunteers in Central America during the mid-1960s developing community agricultural and educational programs.
