Toby Keith’s song “How Do You Like Me Now” is ringing in my ears as I write this article. The same sentiment applies to everyone who made fun of prepping, homesteading and survivalism – and if you get it you get it.
If you haven’t figured it out yet – WAKE UP NOW before it is TOO LATE for you!
This whole Coronavirus (or COVID or whatever the PC word of the day happens to be) will blow over eventually, but not yet. In the meantime, many people are already having some difficulty getting some of the things they need and want at their local stores.
If it keeps up for long enough – and if truck drivers begin to get sick (or just decide not to risk their own health and that of their families) and stop making deliveries to the distribution centers and to the stores – then the stores will all be empty within 3 days to two weeks depending on the particular store and the specific areas.
Those in or nearby major metropolitan areas that are densely populated will be hit the hardest and the fastest.
People are already panicking in some places and anxiety is through the roof in most places – even areas that are largely not being physically affected yet. That causes changes in people’s behavior – and not all of it is good. You see the truth of people during times like these and some of it is ugly.
Yesterday Would Have Been Better – But It Is Gone – So Start Today
Start taking this stuff seriously NOW NOW NOW!
Do not let another day slipway or it very well may cost you and your family dearly.
DO NOT PANIC – BUT DO TAKE ACTION
Begin to reevaluate life and to start to make some plans and gather some resources that will help make sure you and those you love and care most about will have all that you need and most of what you want to make it through these things when they happen.
And even once this crisis is over – THERE WILL BE ANOTHER…
Count on it. It is only a matter of what it will be and when – but there will be anther crisis soon enough. Know that now and get ready for it while you still can.
Start watching some YouTube videos, and read some ebooks and then above all just get STARTED and begin taking action. Little things done every day, every week and every month will all add up to big changes – changes that may save your life. Changes that will definitely make it better in both good times and bad and will give you much more peace of mind knowing you can ride out most events easily when others will be panicking and raiding stores for toilette paper and hand sanitizer.
Learn what to do and how to do it. Then start doing it. Learn what to get and then get it. Keep learning and keep doing the things you need to be doing to survive and to thrive in life – and be prepared for whatever may come next.
