How Positive Thoughts Build Skills, Boost Health, and Improve Work
I'd love to talk to the person that thinks running away from a wild tiger is a good idea, after they've successfully run away from it. Tiger sees a big meat bag running away from it, instinct response is tiger chases, pins & eats said meat bag. Granted, if I happen across a tiger in the wild, I'd be scared sh*tless - but running wouldn't be my first option. Neither would climbing a tree (because tigers can climb - probably far better than I can). I'd personally opt for the largest stick/rock I could comfortably wield, and backing away slowly, without turning my back on the tiger, and with the backup plan of shoving said stone/stick down said tigers throat with a loud "eat that you f**ker!" Fear triggers fight or flight - dead people chose the flight option with the tiger, badly mauled people chose the fight option.
