The time to prepare is before the need arises.
Survival awareness, planning and preparation need to become a part of your daily life. This means knowing what could potentially cause you or your family harm. It could be a crime such as an attempted robbery, rape or kidnapping. It could be a natural disaster that causes otherwise nice neighbors to turn into hungry, desperate looters who try to break into your home and steal your food.
If a terrorist attack were to happen nearby, regardless of where you are in the world, it could have disastrous consequences if you are not prepared and ask yourself the right questions before you are forced to.
Whatever the cause, being prepared ahead of time will give you a significant advantage over those who have no plan.
We are becoming so dependent on our technology for everything that we are losing touch with our human side that is perceptive and notices the little things.
Being aware at all times of your environment, your surroundings and those nearby can go a long way to avoiding a confrontation. Being “armed with awareness” as well as preparing and training can go a long way to securing your survival when things just aren’t working out the way you had hoped.
You may find yourself needing to defend yourself, or to come to the aid of a friend or family member in the future; wouldn’t it be prudent and responsible for you to have some basic, yet effective knowledge on how to do so?
When we see violence on the news in other parts of the country or in other parts of the world, it is easy to distance ourselves from it and have a sense of denial as many falsely believe that it won’t happen to us.
But what if it does?
What if one day when you least expect it, violence erupts near you – either to you or to a family member. What would you do? Would you freeze or leap into action? Without properly preparing yourself, the vast majority of people will fail to act, watching helplessly as the violence unfolds in front of them. On the street, it is you against them. Your heart races, your breathing becomes fast and shallow, time slows down, tunnel vision sets in, your hands begin to sweat and you realize at that moment you are in a life or death situation. With proper training and preparation, you can act decisively and without regret and emerge the victor, not the victim.
You see, criminals have a big advantage over you. They most likely have prior experience fighting and in hand-to-hand combat that most people don’t have unless they were in the military or involved in martial arts. Criminals are criminals all the time. Therefore, you must be prepared to absolutely destroy your attacker, and that begins with the mindset you must have – what I call “The Warrior Mindset.”
Remember, there are NO RULES on the street. Are you ready for that?
Most people think they are, but even experienced police officers and those in the military are sometimes not prepared mentally for that potential outcome. If you are not prepared, you will hesitate when you need to act, and that hesitation may be what causes you to lose the encounter.
You must learn how to prepare yourself mentally for the unthinkable before it happens just as much as your physical preparation. You need to ask yourself what you would do if confronted, or if you were to witness a brutal crime unfolding before you to someone you care about. Could you do what needs to be done to end the threat, no matter what the cost?
Ask before the need arises – have the answer before you need it. Do that, and you will not hesitate when faced with a threat. This is something that many police officers and law enforcement personnel do not even do.
Remember the slightest hesitation could be the difference between success and failure… and failure is not an option when your life is on the line!
