A Survivalist’s Motto

“If you don’t prepare, you could lose everything. If you prepare for the worst and nothing happens, you’ve lost nothing.”

Given the risks in the world today, it just makes sense to prepare.

The prepper movement has gained a-lot of traction over the past several years. It’s happening for a reason. More people are ‘getting it’. They are becoming more aware of our problems and risks as a indebted, dependent, densely populated society.

 
“…if nothing happens, you’ve lost nothing.” You might compare preparedness to an insurance policy. But unlike conventional insurance policies where you pay into the plan and then have nothing to show for it (if nothing happens) and you didn’t need it – with survival preparedness you will have lost nothing as you’ve procured supplies and hard assets (and skills) which are yours, in your possession. Tangible. You can still use them…

It’s an insurance policy where you are paying premiums – to yourself!

The survivalist (preparedness) minded will not go through the future blindly, as sheeple being led by their ‘masters’; but instead will lead themselves, think for themselves. Discovering the risks. Adapting solutions for them. Taking charge of their own life.

So the survivalist, the prepper, prepares. The survivalist takes charge of their own future. They commit the time to learn the truths beyond the mainstream marketing propaganda. They understand the systemic risks. They know that one day the price will be paid for our debt-laden lifestyle (as individuals and nations), knowing that nothing in life comes for free.

Being prepared not only sets you up to survive, it offers intangibles – peace of mind.

 
Just remember this:
By not preparing, you are preparing to fail.
