I’m going to diverge from my usual survival and preparedness related posts, Conservative political opinions and weapons related items just for this specific post so I can mention some important things I feel everyone should strive to achieve in life.  I’ve told this over and over to my children when they were growing up; and now that they are  college students; I’d like to pass it along to you.

  1. Attend college and graduate with an employable degree.  It is never too late to go to school.  A degree is not enough; it must be an employable degree.
  2. Enjoy what you do for work.  If you don’t then find another line of work. 
  3. Be proud of your country and proud to be an American.
  4. Find someone who makes you happy and when you do stick with that person.
  5. It’s better to have money and be happy then to not have money and be happy or unhappy.
  6. Life is too short to be miserable.
  7. If you don’t like something about your lifestyle or your personality, etc., then work on changing it.
  8. Have a hobby you enjoy doing and do it.
  9. Learn the art of relaxation.
  10. Have an attitude of gratitude.
  11. Believe in yourself and your abilities.
  12. Be confident always.
  13. Positive thinking gets you further than negative thinking.
  14. Agree with everything I say; oh alright, agree with everything I say most of the time 🙂

In any survival situation there are key personality traits which can improve your overall chances for survival.  These traits are as follows.

  • Situational Awareness – The ability to be aware of your surroundings at all times including noticing danger signs, interpreting another persons body language, determining what various noises are and what they mean, etc.
  • Adaptability – The ability to change your plans as needed and to not fall apart when things don’t go your way.  You have to be able to roll with the changes and not get derailed if plans or situations change.
  • Courage – The ability to have a firm commitment to survive and to do what is necessary in the face of danger.  Courage allows you to master your fears and proceed ahead with the tasks at hand.
  • Patience – The ability to wait for the right moment before you take action.  Timing is everything.
  • Decisiveness – The ability to make correct decisions based on available facts.  Sitting around waiting for something to happen can often be detrimental to your survival.
  • Self Confidence – The ability to utilize your skills and abilities in a confident, positive manner regardless of the circumstances.
  • Mental Toughness – The ability to stay alert and focused and to know that no matter what; you will be victorious in any situation that arises.
  • Positive Thinking – The ability to focus on the positive and avoid holding yourself back by dwelling on the negative.

In any SHTF, TEOTWAWKI or WROL situation you will find that some people will behave irrationally and may try to take advantage of chaotic situations.  Expect these people to commit criminal acts; so be prepared to defend yourself and your family.  All of these people will want something from you and many of them will do nothing to prepare; but will still feel they are owed something.  Just because a disaster has occurred does not mean the attitude of these people will change.

Do not allow strangers to latch onto you.  They can prove to be very dangerous.  Your goal is to prepare to ensure your family’s survival; not the survival of every stranger that passes by.  You must be prepared to defend yourself and your family from those who would try and harm you and steal your food, water, guns, ammo and other survival supplies.  If strangers had the chance to prepare and chose not to, it is not your responsibility to provide for them.

Your survival skills and your supplies will not be able to save everyone but they can help save the people who matter to you the most.  You must learn to trust your instincts and stay alert, avoid becoming predictable, be observant, familiarize yourself with your surroundings, learn to move quietly in all environments and avoid large groups of people.  In any survival situation your attitude is everything.
