The 5 Phase Path of the Prepper (American Preppers Network)
We recognize a new area that we have not previously explored and seek out those who are experienced in this area and are willing to share and Mentor.
We study, along with other learners, what the Mentor presents. Then we practice these new skills along with others through online exchange via blogs, forums, podcasts and videos.
We begin adapting our lives to accommodate our new found skill through acquiring new items, changing our surroundings or by stocking up. We begin sharing this information with others who are on this journey with us.
Through this process we are able to master an area and begin to consider ourselves an expert in this area.
We become mentors to others who are now learning this skill, while deferring to our Mentors and continuing to learn. We continue to repeat the cycle by continuing to learn new skills.
The Path of the Prepper defines our steps while the Five Principles of Preparedness defines our goals.
We all walk the Path of the Prepper and in doing so are able to increase our own knowledge and expertise while sharing our expertise with others.
