Are you prepared?
“Be Prepared” seems to be the common phrase being broadcast by several organizations. The Federal Emergency Management Agency, state emergency authorities, church and civic groups have all been counseling us to become better prepared for a long time. Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are claiming hundreds even thousands of lives every year. Each of these are unforeseen events which cannot be prevented. But they are all events that must be dealt with. These disasters seem to have become so common that we are no longer stirred by there occurrences, until it hits home.
What are we doing to become better prepared for the natural disasters of our daily lives? Even in a world of comfort and convenience, each day can present different types of unforeseen events. It could be a flat tire on the way to work, a washing machine that suddenly ceases to operate, the unexpected loss of a job, or worse yet, a devastating calamity. No matter what the circumstances might be or how inconvenient it may seem our method of dealing with unexpected disasters may very well determine the final effect. The determining factor through it all rests upon our “Attitude”.
Imagine for a moment that you have suddenly become the sole survivor of an airplane tragedy. You find yourself surrounded by sagebrush and cactus in a vast terrain. There is no visible water or anything that looks like shelter for what might be miles. In this moment there are only two possible attitudes, one is: “I can’t make it through this, I’m thirsty, it’s hot, I’ll never survive this”, the other is: “I am going to make it through this no matter what it takes, I will live through this”. Only one of these two attitudes will ensure your survival.
Our daily lives may not be as life threatening as the above scenario, but if we choose the “I can’t make it” attitude we will begin a slow decay of ourselves; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We must become better prepared to meet the challenges of our daily lives. If not then how can we possibly deal with a potentially dangerous situation? We must prepare ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually in order to respond with confidence and skill to all unforeseen events. To be empowered with skills and knowledge that bring about self-reliance, is to be empowered with the gift of life, ‘Ultimate Self-Reliance’.Tweet
