Mindset is pretty important. I actually think mindset is the most important aspect of being prepared for disasters. I have talked about this multiple times. I particularly like the post on Whats Important Now. How you think and what you think about shape every aspect of your life. Proper mindset is what differentiates winners from losers, citizens from soldiers, and Soldiers from Operators.
Mindset has kept people alive when they have suffered injuries that should have been fatal. You just have to keep your head.
Additionally, the concept of what is reasonable tempers the mind. I may be willing to kill to survive, but being a reasonable person I balance this willingness with an understanding of the law, consequences, and morality. This balance can be a complicated algorithm on occasion, but the ideas behind reasonableness is simple.
