'Safety Needs' to be addressed before you reach 'Self Actualization'
Well we are not dwelling upon the inventions which human beings made since their inception but that the basic skill set which has helped us stay safe and secure is 'survival'. The paradigm of 'Survival' has always been of prime significance. From stone and fire we have evolved to nukes and drones, our genre of being a food gatherer and hunter has been taken over by online retailers like 'Groffers' , 'CureFit' and umpteen more. The specialized uniformed men like police and military have come to our rescue and ensure our survival but inspite of all this we can not and should not do away with a basic 'life skill' called 'Survival'.
I have amplified it time and again that between us and our attacker/s there are only 2 virtues which can help us sustain and survive - Will & Skill ! Firstly, we have to believe that 'there is a need' and then 'we need to KNOW so that we can say 'NO' to an extreme situation. Anyone else, technology , armed response or whatever have you will only come later, so you need to hold it till help comes.
Those of you from the civil stream with little knowledge on body guarding would be rather surprised to learn that a good 'Body Guarding' or 'Executive Protection' protocol involves training of a VIP or a Protectee too where they are apprised of certain do's and don'ts when they are exposed to threats. Hence it is imperative that our safety & security first & foremost is 'our responsibility'.
|Survival is Prime|
So till next time stay safe & be a hard target!!
