Ben Sherwood studied data from survivors of all kinds of events to find the commonality. Who survived and why? The range of things life throws at each of us includes everything from losing a job in a recession, being diagnosed with cancer, surviving a plane wreck or a even a burning building. The science of studying the people who survived catastrophic events revealed amazing similarities.
The Survivors Club book leads us through the answers to two questions, â€œ(1) What does it really take to survive? and (2) What kind of survivor are you?â€
- Part 1 tells the extraordinary stories of survivors and their traits that gave them the advantage to overcome improbable odds. Their data helps unlock the mystery of survival and teaches you about the 5 personality types and twelve tools of survival. These stories were amazing in detail and inspiring in their hope and faith.
- Part 2 builds on the same traits, but focuses on you, the reader, and helps you determine your Survival IQ. Ben Sherwood, includes an internet based test to determine your survivor personality type. Don’t worryâ€¦ you can’t fail the test, but it helps you realize your strengths in an everyday situation or a major catastrophe. Ahemâ€¦ some people have been known to skip to the test first. Just sayin’. Oh yeah, if you don’t win, there is a shorter version online.
We took the test and foundâ€¦ well, once you take the Survival Profile, you also get to read about other survivors of your same type and match your traits with theirs! Do you know which survivor you are most like?
And, a big hint before reading the book or taking the profile test. Everyone is a Survivorâ€¦ everyone has inherent tools available to help them. The first step is identifying your tools and then learning to use them as your talents, your strengths. After reading stories of people who survived lion mauling, extraordinary combat situations and overcoming cancer, you will believe anything is possible. You will also learn how simple things can make the biggest difference in your safety and the best advice of all, â€œDo not waste a breath.â€
We hope you never need it, but we enjoyed reading how instincts, perspective and preparation can all make a difference in life threatening moments.
