“Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 – 1962) was the wife of Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt and the first U.S. “First Lady” who took a prominent active role in politics. After the death of her husband, she served at the United Nations as a humanitarian and helped wrote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In the presidency of Kennedy, she was appointed as chair of the Commission on the Status of Women.

Prussian statesman Otto von Bismarck once said, “Only a fool learns from his own mistakes. The wise man learns from the mistakes of others.” But a new study led by Dr. Paul Howard Jones and Dr. Rafal Bogacz of Bristol University, determined that human brains are inherently observant of their competitors’ mistakes. The researchers scanned the brain activity of their subjects who were made to play against a computer. Their neural activity had very little reaction to their opponent’s win but jumped up at the computer’s slip-up. Further data suggest that their brain took notice of their opponent’s mistake and learned from its mistakes.

However, the study does not extend to real life experiences. Although humans have the capacity to learn from others, it is still a matter of perspective. The study at Goldsmiths, University of London suggests that it also has to do with the brain wiring: some people are simply “bad learners.”

More studies have yet to be conducted to fully understand this aspect. It is important to note though that most of the prominent figures in history admit to making a lot of mistakes. To quote Winston Churchill: “Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
