Probably everyone has had several momentary frightening, even life-threatening, situations in their life. However, most people have never faced a serious and sustained survival situation that seems to have no end in sight. How do you prepare yourself to recognize, understand, manage and overcome the extraordinary levels of stress that can build in such situations?
The short answer is — through education, practice and lifestyle. In this program, we’ll discuss with the Dyes just how they have been applying this in their family life and their interest in helping others to do the same.
In this final installment of this series, we take on one of the biggest problems to overcome in any survival situation — FEAR. Fear is the thing that steels ones ability to function at the highest levels needed to make it through the difficult and threatening situations. Fear will distract, paralyze or completely overcome an individual in such a way they may be unable to function at any level. It’s not about totally eliminating fear, but rather being inoculated against it in such a way that fear will not be in control when things happen. Like any kind of inoculation it must done beforehand. Once FEAR is in control, it is too late to suddenly decide to not be afraid and get on with the critical tasks at hand.
David Dye has two Bachelor’s Degrees from Brigham Young University and a Master’s of Social Work from Our Lady of the Lake University in Texas. He did Post Graduate Studies in the sociology and psychology of survival. He’s worked for a youth wilderness therapy program where he was able to apply what he’d learned in school, but also learned some very valuable practical lessons from some extremely harsh and dangerous situations.
He focuses on teaching and rearing his children and sharing with others that a life of self-reliance is inherently rewarding. Even if there are no major manmade, political or natural catastrophes, such a lifestyle is a liberating way to live without fear of what the future may bring.
