In survival people often talk about; three minutes without air, three days without water, three weeks without food. I’d like to add another: three seconds without thinking.

Megan Hine

Author, Mind of a Survivor

The principles covered are just as valid in the jungle being chased by armed men as they would be in an intense business meeting.

Drawing on her vast wealth of survival experiences around the world Megan talks us through the cognitive side of survival situations and puts them into a context we can all relate to.

Surviving in the wild takes a great deal of strength. You instantly think of brute muscle and fitness but what few people consider is that to truly survive you need mental agility and adaptability; you need the Mind of a Survivor!

The book covers the following topics in 16 nail-biting chapters:

  • The developing mind
  • The modern mind
  • Intuition
  • Acceptance
  • Curiosity & Creativity
  • The Active Mind
  • Empathy
  • Preparation
  • The Open Mind
  • Resilience
  • The Partitioned mind
  • Fear
  • The Decisive Mind
  • Leadership
  • The Selfish Mind

Decisive Mind:

Under pressure in the wilderness or in the office, making a decision and sticking to it can make all the difference. Megan talks about being shot at it in Africa and how she made the decision to run for safety.




Being able to accept whatever situation you find yourself in and then using that to your advantage could keep you alive. Either in a survival situation or a confrontation on the street, keeping your cool and accepting the situation will allow you to formulate a plan and deal with whatever adversity you are faced with.
