I recently discovered why I am trying to teach people about preparation and equip people with the things they need to be prepared.

I was invited to speak at a conference. While waiting on my turn to speak I watched another speaker take two separate people through a quick course of a few questions to discover why they did the work they did versus what they truly desired to do at a core level.

What came out was their true heart felt motivation. The end result surprised both subjects as well as all the listeners, including me.

After listening to this, I spent the next few days dissecting true core level motivation for why I do what I do.

In 1992, I read a book that struck a fear deep inside me. The premise of the book was the sure economic failure of our American economy.

The book made me feel ignorant about how to survive in the middle of a city of five million people who were sure to panic, begging, borrowing and stealing just to feed themselves and their families should disaster strike.

After some reflection, I realized my motivation for preparing myself and others went much deeper than simple survival.

You see, as an eleven year old boy, I lived through a period of time after my dad left our family with no money, my mother’s tiny income, and very little food. At that age I had to make two house payments with paper-route money to keep us going. We went two weeks eating nothing but beans. I made vows as a boy that I would never live that way again, no matter what I had to do.

Having gone through this experience, I realized I prepare and teach preparation because I don’t want to see anyone go through circumstances like that, or worse.

With some planning to give yourself options, you can live a life of dignity even in hard times.

I look forward to helping you and your family or organization.
