“The body cannot go where the mind has not been.”
Why This Page Is Important
This page is about more than introducing Captain Ready. If we can visualize ourselves being successful, we are more likely to succeed.
Navy SEALs and world-class athletes use mental visualization to help them improve their ability to respond during high stress situations.
While the concept might be a little too deep for young people to contemplate, the practice of mental visualization can help them (and you) prepare for an emergency.
As you talk to students about the safety issues in this book, encourage them to think about how they would respond. They don’t have to pretend they are Captain Ready (but it wont hurt!).
