The seven enemies of life for survivalists

A reader of the excellent Bison Survival Blog made these salient points, which are worth sharing as they more or less sum up in a nutshell what true survival is all about.


We become mentally prepared when we are able to use the 7 Skills to defeat the 7 Enemies of Life.

The 7 Skills:

Fire Starting
Water Procurement
Shelter Building
Foraging for food
First Aid
Self Defense

The 7 Enemies of Life:

Fear and anxiety
Cold and Heat
Boredom and Loneliness
Pain and Injury

In essence, we develop self confidence by mastering the skills needed to overcome any situation that arises to threaten our life.

Always remember, none of us will be ultimate survivors - we all have to die one day.

But the successful survivor extends his or her life beyond an earlier death...a death that was caused by ignorance of how to make that life last longer.


How many skills do you have? Enough to survive a catastrophic event and its fallout? 
If the answer is none, maybe you should start learning - right now.
Could you handle the 7 enemies of life? Is there an eighth?
