Be Better Prepared: 12 Brilliant (And Slightly Badass) Ways to Do It
March 13, 2013
Everyone wants to be better prepared. Today we will share 12 brilliant and slightly badass ways to do it. You and your family have to be ready and prepared for all scenarios. But what happens when you are forced to evacuate for an extended period of time? You will be forced to leave with only what you can carry. A situation may arise where you will be forced to improvise. This article will help you be better prepared for when the original plans fail.
Once you determine why you are prepping, you will have a better understanding of what you have to do. Prepping is life assurance and not life insurance; you are preparing to maintain life during and after a cataclysmic event.
What is required for life after the disaster? Surviving the crisis is one thing, but surviving in the aftermath is an entirely different scenario. You have to think outside the box because there really are no rules, and to survive you have to meet the challenges before they meet you because by then it is too late. People have survived natural disasters, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes and so forth. However, who out there can say they survived a nuclear detonation in their city, a chemical attack where one drop of nerve agent on the skin is deadly in minutes and is there anyone that has survived a biological attack that spreads diseases and bacteria we only thought lived in nightmares. The next attack or disaster could break new ground in its intensity and devastation.
1. Have a Military Mindset
The military trains their soldiers to be mentaly tough. At some point, it may very well come down to survival of the fittest and of the smartest. You have to be physically able to do the tasks as well as have the metal fortitude to see them through to the finish. One hundred people can beat a large oak tree all day long with sticks and never fell the tree, nor even damage it. One person comes along and decides to put an axe head on one of the stout sticks and the tree is felled in a matter of hours by one person. This is how you must think as you begin to prepare for a disaster.
