You are your first responder. You are your first line of defense. You are the first on the seen of what happens to you. It’s not a question if you’ll need to respond to something, it’s how you will respond.
The adage “we don’t rise to the occasion, we fall to our level of training” is true. If you’ve allowed yourself to be caught up in everyday business and pleasures, and haven’t prepared for emergency situations or out of the ordinary ordeals, you’ll react behind the curve unprepared and probably in a panic. It’s happened to all of us.
Take time to analyze your strengths and weaknesses and build from there.
“A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished” (Proverbs 22:3).
