There are some common barriers that might keep us from taking steps toward becoming prepared. Are you stuck on one of these?
“I don’t know what I need to do.”
“I’m already too busy; I don’t have time to do one more thing!”
“I know I should buy extra supplies in case of an emergency, but I barely pay my bills as it is.”
“My place is too small to store extra supplies.”
“What’s the fuss? The odds of something happening that would qualify as an emergency are slim to none.”
“I don’t like thinking of bad things happening.”
“If something that bad happens, there’s nothing I can do to stop it anyway.”
“There’s so much to do, I’ll never be able to accomplish half of it all.”
Every one of these barriers can be overcome. Yes, it will take some time, study, and even imagination. For the most part, it’s ourselves that are the barrier. These are just excuses.
Let’s stop leaning on excuses and just start doing it!
