7. Stay Calm and Improvise
When Luke was dropped through the trapdoor and presented to the Rancor as a present, he could have easily given into fear and become someone else’s dinner.
Instead, Luke did his best to remain calm throughout the terrifying situation, and this allowed him to improvise by picking up bones and a skull.
If you find yourself dealing with a life or death encounter, you must keep your wits about you and be willing to quickly improvise in order to survive. Always do a visual scan of your surroundings so that you are prepared to take action at any time.
