It’s no mistake that at Nutrient Survival, we adopted the Wolf as the spirit animal of our company. We all know that living in these times is not easy. But a wolf doesn’t concern himself with the opinions of sheep.
Winter is coming. We will survive as a team or we will perish. We must work together and yet we must be individually ready. Our lives depend on it. Winter strikes without warning. And as temperatures plummet, tensions will rise.
I admire wolves. When I was a boy growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I remember visiting a wolf sanctuary and being mesmerized by these creatures. Their presence, their confidence, and their longing for release as they stared at me from behind that wire fence -- it made an impact on me I will never forget. Appropriately, my high school mascot was the Wolf. A symbol of teamwork, loyalty, spirit, and always fierce in battle.
Wolves are one of the most incredible predators on earth. They are fiercely loyal to their pack. They make quick and firm emotional attachments, but when needed, trust their own instincts. They teach us to do the same. To trust our hearts and minds, and have control over our own lives. Even so, wolves are the ultimate team players. They know working together benefits the whole pack and they must be prepared to come together for the greater good. In doing so, even though wolves live in some of the toughest environments in the world, they don’t just survive - they thrive.
If you find yourself connected to the wolf like I do, you will acknowledge taking three things very seriously: your work, your play, and protecting what you love from harm. Wolves are not violent by nature. But if threatened, they elicit fear within their foes. In our modern-day lives, the wolf spirit inspires us to protect what we love. To stand up for our beliefs. To protect our livelihood. And to guard the ones we love from harm.
That’s what we’re about at Nutrient Survival. Feed Your Freedom.
