Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally, Episode-1274 – 14 Life Rules of a Modern Survivalist and originally aired on Jan. 7, 2014. The notes below are the original notes from that episode.
I was going to call this show “14 Rules for Being a Modern Survivalist” but I realized that would violate my survival tenet that reads…
“Your personal philosophy is more important for you than mine! You are the master of your own life and if you don’t agree with my views, great, define, understand and implement your own. The biggest thing you can do is understand that you are in control of your life and that what you do matters. Those two factors have the greatest impact on individual survival across every demographic you can imagine.”
For me that is a deep intrinsic belief not just a tenet of modern survival philosophy. I may come across as fully convinced in my beliefs and passionate about them to the extreme but that doesn’t mean I wish to impose them on any other person. So I decided I would simply let you guys know today about 10 of the “rules” that I follow in my life. Some are very old for me, they have guided me since childhood, others I have gained in recent years on my walk as a modern survivalist…
