You may have read about people who have managed to get through and survive disaster and catastrophes, which are potentially life-threatening. On the other hand, there have been people who went through extensive survival training, and still could not manage to use their particular skills effectively and beneficiary in order to survive. So, even though the latter had the requisite knowledge and skills, what made them fail, when other lesser trained people succeeded? That is the will to survive. I know about an Army officer who brought his group of seven men through an enemy ridden territory after 31 days of harrowing mental, physical and psychological trauma. It was not his army training, which brought him and his responsibility back to base safely. It was also not their knowledge, about how to get food, save themselves from the enemy, make fire, make or take shelter in the best place available, and other factors which could make all the difference between life and death.
