How Can We Remain Calm in a Disaster?

As British soldiers neared Normandy’s Sword Beach, and enemy gunners opened fire, landing-craft operators stayed calm.  They were not alone in their courage.

Even when enemy bullets were whizzing by their heads, and land mines were all around, the British soldiers pushed forward.

Staying calm helped them to spot a possible way through the mine fields. Studying the ground, the soldiers followed a path where cattle had been grazing just days before. If the cattle were able to walk through a minefield, so could the soldiers.

How was it possible for these soldiers to remain calm when a disaster was occurring all around them?

What does their example teach us about thinking our way through serious problems?

What are some of the techniques we can use to remain calm even during an ever-worsening situation?
