Hi everyone,

Are you one of those people that wonder why people always pick fights with you or stare you down? Well today's post is exactly on that topic. People who are considered to be "prey"or the weaker ones usually find themselves in situations where they end up being bullied. The reason for this is that they attract the bullying due to the how they present themselves to the world. So if you feel scared, timid or powerless your attitude will display this to the outside world in the way you walk, talk and carry yourself during the course of your day.

Predators see these characteristics that the prey are displaying and are naturally drawn and attracted to them like a fly is naturally drawn to crap. It boils down to animal magnetism and please I am not implying that people with low self esteem are crap I am just making a comparison. Take a look at people with confidence they walk with there head held high, shoulders rolled back, walk with energy and purpose and talk with an assertive tone. They don't have the problem of people picking on them because of how they are presenting themselves regardless of there size.

Now if you are one of these prey people have a friend follow you with a video camera on any given day that you don't know about and have them record you in your natural environment. What you will find is how you truly present yourself to the outside world and trust me there is a big difference on what you think you display compared to what you actually display. Many people are shocked when they see themselves and how they actually present themselves to others.

Note: There are many small video cameras that are hidden that look like pens, buttons etc so they can not be detected. An example of a naturally filmed environment is having a friend follow you to work in the morning who knows your routine. Example where you get a coffee, the streets you take to get to work.

This is a powerful eye opening exercise that works.

The Defender's Creed
By: John Farnam

I accept and understand that human predators exist. Criminal or terrorist, they take advantage of our civilized society to prey upon the weak. They represent evil and must be confronted and defeated.

I believe that self-defense is a moral imperative, and that illegitimate force and illegal violence must be met with righteous indignation and superior violence.

I will not rely on others for the security of myself, my family and my community.

I proudly proclaim that I run with a like-minded pack. I do not amble through life with the mind-numbed herd.

I will train with my chosen weapons, maintain them and carry them in a condition of readiness at all times.

I will be mentally prepared and physically equipped to effectively respond to an attack or emergency.

I will constantly test myself against realistic standards to discover my strengths and weaknesses. I will turn weakness into strength.

I will seek to learn new skills and techniques, and then teach what I have learned to other members of the pack.

Be it with firearm or blade, empty hand or blunt object, I will hit my enemies hard, fast and true.

I will live a quiet and unobtrusive life, but I will develop and retain the capacity for swift and decisive violence.

I recognize that I am the modern equivalent of the traditional Minuteman, and that I may be called to service at any time against heavily armed enemies. I will respond effectively.

I accept that I am a pariah among some of my countrymen, and a quaint anachronism to others. I will not hold their ignorance against them.

I will win, or die trying.

I swear this creed before God, my family and my fellow citizens.
