The Mental Side of Self Defense

Posted by Rob Longenecker on July 29th, 2006

“Alpha Bravo 413, Eject! Eject! Eject!” 

How’d you like to hear the Air Boss shouting that in your headset just as you launched from the USS John F. Kennedy into the blackness of the pre-dawn? You might be on fire or have had a “cold” catapult shot and the air boss is trying to save your life.

To hell with the airplane. You’ve got 2-3 seconds to act and no second chance.

As a well-trained Naval Aviator, you wouldn’t pull out the emergency procedures manual from it’s pocket in you G-Suit to see what to do. You’d have thought this situation over ahead of time, over and over again. You’d have made your decision way in advance.  All it would take was the right “trigger” and you would take the predetermined action. You’d eject.

Have you given the same pre-planning to self-defense? Your job is tougher than mine was as a Naval Aviator because you may find yourself in a variety of situations where the threat, the environment, the safety of bystanders, legal ramifications and your desire to survive might cause indecision.  It might be easy to react too quickly – or not fast enough

But you’ve only got a split second to decide.

I talk a lot about this in my Free! special report “You Can’t Miss Fast Enough To Win A Gunfight!” There’s only one way to get it and that’s sign up for in that box in the upper right corner. And if you’ve already done that then you have the report and know all about taking the necessary precautions in advance of needing them.

I hope you’ve given it a lot of thought already.  If you haven’t, then it’s time.

Remember also, your skill level will be your “performance envelope” giving you a range of alternatives in a life or death situation.  Poorly trained individuals may react poorly, shoot too soon and cause unintended consequences they’ll regret.  The better your skills, the more confident you are in your abilities, the more pre-planning you have done, the greater the likelihood you will act appropriately and effectively.

There’s no time to pull out your “emergency procedures manual,” so prepare now. Professional training would be something wise to consider as well to expand your “performance envelope.”  There’s a lot at stake.
