The wild or jungle simply got dressed up with cement, highways and modern obstacles but the need for survival is still the same. There is not much difference between the jungle of old and the jungle of today. The punishment for not surviving is still the same only dressed up in different words. It’s still survival of the fittest which is why people can walk past a homeless person without a heart beat change because they feel like better survivors. The punishment of failing to survive includes joblessness, poverty, death, demotions and other things. So, how do you survive the jungle or wild, there are a few tips for you.

In today’s world you must carry a certificate of some sort or any type of learned skill which you can use to attack or defend your yourself. There are many enemies in the world, anyone can kill you. There is inflation, there are diseases, bills and expenses which if you don’t have the right weapons you could lose the survival game.

Keep a light load of words and stick to the point if you say too much you might get killed.
3. Choose your paths wisely
In the jungle some paths are full of snares or ambushes. It may seem safe but just when you are getting comfortable you might just get killed.
