The Surprisingly Simple Way To Avoid Being Robbed

Image source: Pixabay.com

Let me start this out with a bit of a test for you. Try to answer the following questions:

  • The last time you stopped for gas, how many other cars were getting gas?
  •  
  • What color socks was your boss wearing today?
  •  
  • What did the people in front of you and behind you at the grocery line look like?
  •  
  • How many of your neighbors left this morning, before you did?
  •  
  • Were there any unusual cars parked on your street when you got home today?

If you can answer any of those questions, without it being pure guess work, you’re doing good. The truth is, though, that most of us can’t. We become used to the situations around us and then just stop noticing them. Then, when something new or different comes along, we don’t even recognize it for what it is.

Instead, we’re looking at our smartphones — checking email, texting friends, or posting pictures to Facebook.

“So, what?” you might say. “Who cares about my boss’s socks or the other people stopped in the same gas station?” If that’s your reaction, trust me, you’re not alone. Most of the adults on this planet would say more or less the same thing.

  • Situational awareness will only tell you which person is about to shove a gun in your face and take your new iPhone and wallet.

    • Ah… so (Air Quotes …), if that’s the case, then don’t worry about anything and don’t concern yourself with what’s going on around you. Just go back to looking at your new iPhone and stick to your own little world you’re in. :evil: :wink:

  • Situational awareness has saved my my life many times in very dangerous situations in foreign countries throughout the years and it’s an invaluable skill to have !!!
