Have you been preparing for any disaster and checking off your items as you go about storing supplies?


But, do you know what the #1 rule is in becoming a Survivor?

Most people don’t know and it is to their detriment if a disaster were to occur.

Give up?

The most important thing you can do is: Don’t tell ANYONE you’re a prepper or survivalist and have a stockpile of items in your home or safe place!

Why is this so important?  There are numerous reasons but we will touch on a few here.

Let’s say you’ve been storing food, supplies, fuel, etc. and your neighbor happens to see you bringing all of these weird items into your house.

What if you’ve started growing vegetables, fruit trees, bought some chickens and built a coop?  The nosy neighbor asks you what you’re up to and you tell him.  Or, you tell your kids and they tell their friends.

You are rolling along doing your own thing when disaster strikes—either man-made or natural.  What do you think that neighbor is going to say or do?

Because they haven’t taken the time to prepare and are now in a panic they’re going to remember that their neighbor, you, did take the time and a bonus—you live right next door, you are their neighbor and of course you want to share…NOT!

As much as you like your neighbor, extended family and friends you should NEVER tell anyone you’re preparing. You may feel sorry for these people because they didn’t take the time to prepare as we have and if you are to survive you have probably only put enough of the items away to sustain you and/or your immediate family.

If you let someone into the group, and they tell their friends, they WILL come after your stuff.  When disaster strikes everyone is desperate and the world will have changed in the blink of an eye.

You’ll need a way to protect your provisions whether it is with a gun, a knife or other means because you’ll have items that people are going to desperately want:  food, shelter, fuel, batteries, lights, etc.  Are you prepared to protect all of your hard-earned work and preparation?

Don’t think it will happen?  It can and will.  Just because you took the time doesn’t mean anyone else did.  Again, the #1 rule in Survival?  Don’t tell anyone you are prepared!

P.S. The sad truth is, you really can’t trust anyone anymore. Part of protecting yourself and surviving is keeping your financial house in order by protecting yourself from identity theft, which happens to over 10 million Americans per year.

I started using these cards that fit perfectly in my wallet and actually stop identity theft. They sure do give me peace of mind, I think they will for you too.
