REALITH CHECK Recognize the Potentialities & Begin the Preparedness Process!

Note from Andrew:  Today I’m pleased to present another article in a periodic column by my friend Roger Reality.  Roger has been a key mentor in my life particularly with regard to critical thinking and analysis, and as you will see…he speaks with passion.  This discusses the need to recognize the potentialities and begin the preparedness process.  Enjoy.

Prepping begins with recognition, recognition of potentialities.  A person begins prepping by transitioning from that “light bulb moment” (recognition) into a preparedness process.  The preparedness process then begins with a decision to prepare oneself and family for some of those potentialities within the limits of reality.  The reality is that we will NEVER achieve complete preparation!  Preparedness is, as I said, a process and as such is a continuous and evolving endeavor.

PerilsThe process involves certain “steps” and there is no perfect solution but generally includes recognizing the need, deciding to prepare for probable “threats”,  obtaining information regarding both the threats and the preparations necessary to address them, analyzing your capabilities and limitations (this will be a whole article in the near future), acquiring knowledge, acquiring training, and FINALLY acquiring resources that enable the application of the aforementioned analysis, knowledge and training.  I affiliate myself with because it recognizes that prepping is NOT about finding an excuse to spend way too much money at the gun show and Sams Club!  It is first and foremost an intellectual endeavor that requires a mindset of calculated, prudent and total preparation for events that WILL tax our abilities, resolve and resources in ways somewhere along the spectrum from inconvenient to savage survival.

It will matter little how many groceries you have stockpiled if they are destroyed or stolen when you need them.  It won’t matter how many weapons you possess if you die quickly because your tactics suck.  Disease cares not about the size of a bunker or how many rounds of ammunition you own.  It is a fool’s errand to think that you can be “prepared” without the long hours of learning, real analysis, training, practice and social interaction that will determine your success or failure when survival is on the line!  So, begin your preparedness process by RECOGNIZING what it is, what it will demand, and what you must do in order to improve your probability to survive!

That’s your Reality Check!

  1. The ‘light bulb moment” is critical because if you never have one you’ll never understand why preparedness matters.
