Prepare for The Real World: The World Is Not a Safe Place
Paperback – March 9, 2022
The threats we face today are growing unprecedentedly. The events we see in the news, in our communities, schools, churches, and businesses all call for the need for all of us to learn and practice situational awareness. Situational awareness allows you to prevent, remove, and respond to threats and events that could potentially cause you or somebody else to be victims.
Based on today’s reality, we need to provide safety to our families, workplaces, and communities. Situational awareness is the key. Whether you’re the head of the family or a CEO, you need to develop situational awareness not just for yourself but also for your family, those you work with, and others in your community.
Situational awareness gives you the ability to deal with imminent threats. It also allows you to detect and manage signs of potential problems before they materialize.
Situational awareness can be learned and can significantly decrease the likelihood of victimhood from any kind of threat. It comes with preparation, critical decision-making, and development and continuous practice of your own mindset, behaviors, and processes that prepare you when you identify that something is not right. These skills should be applied in our daily lives.
Every person is different, and every situation is unique. The key is to understand when to trust your instincts-your gut feeling-and what to do even before you are faced with any source of stress, danger, or anxiety.
This book will not tell you what to do, but it will provide guidance and education on how you can develop, practice and maintain your situational awareness.
Prepare For The Real World By Being Situationally Aware
The Paratus Group was a long time coming for Searcy. Following a decorated senior leadership career in the Air Force as both a commander and combat veteran, he transitioned into working in defense contracts in 2010 and realized it wasn’t for him. He craved having a mission, and his wife, Heather, quickly pointed that out to him.
He’s since become an entrepreneur, writer, publisher, and public speaker. He co-founded the Paratus Group in 2019 with the objective of using his decades-tested and proven leadership and training experience to solve the need for relevant principles, training methodologies, and programs to help people learn situational awareness.
“One of the reasons I joined the military was to serve and protect my country,” Searcy said. “My greatest satisfaction now is getting the testimonials that say that our courses saved a life, stopped someone from being afraid, or helped someone share those same skills with their children. That means so much to me, and the more who do it, the more we can change the fact that the world isn’t a safe place right now.”

The World is not a safe place. Situational Awareness has a foundational role in our Safety, Mental Health and Leadership.
The threats we face today are growing. How do we turn the tide and head things in the other direction? We empower each of us to take responsibility for our
own safety and the ability and willingness to help take responsibility for our communities.
To do this, the Paratus Group has unique programs designed to ensure the learning of Situational Awareness and the associated skills. They are developed so that they become habits, behaviors and processes that are practiced daily. The learning of Situational Awareness with the Paratus Group Programs provides 3 critical capabilities.
- Empower the ability to identify changes in behavior that impact mental health and wellness.
- Empower the ability through the learning of Situational Awareness to see learning opportunities to improve our ability as leaders to shape the culture and behaviors of our organizations.
