My Resilience Blueprint – Follow Up

Thank You

For being with me in this fully-booked, one-time My Resilience Blueprint workshop.

I tremendously enjoyed sharing my insights and thoughts with you, and I could feel your energy and excitement…

That gives me a lot of hope that you will take the strategy and implement it, to create a better future for you, your loved ones, your community and the world.

Your Biggest Insights

I would love you to take a moment and let me/us know in the comment box below – the most important insights you got during the workshop (1, 3, 10 insights… anything you found extremely valuable).

Since it’s the first time I shared most of this material – your insights will tell me what I’ve done well and what I should have emphasized or explained better.

Also… when we all read each others insights, we might realize that we forgot an important insight, so you’re not only supporting me – but the rest of the group.

All Your Questions Answered

If anything was unclear during the workshop, or you got up in the morning and find yourself wondering, “what did he mean?” or if you have any other question relating to the material I shared during the workshop…

Please post it in a comment below and I’ll answer to the best of my ability.

  1. What you talked about is one of my 'hobbies'/ areas of interest- it was great to hear your take on it. And an inspiration to implement more. Eventhough some of my efforts, I scored pretty low on many areas... 😀

    Insights: 3 mindsets. i am working on this for over 20 years now- deliberately. What was new/ insightful, was these 3 presented together in this way: easier to remember and thus practice. How I am taught, what all humans want is to be fearless and have ultimate happiness. these three mindsets are a a great extension to that- to practice.

    The 12 areas/ blueprint are a fantastic list, again very usable. I have been one of the people that listened to your 'rants' about gold ;-), since 8 years I have been constantly buying gold and storing it in zwitserland also, besides some at home. So thank you for that- it gives peace of mind.
    Fantastic that you included community.

    My main areas to focus on are
    food: gonna refill my stock up to 14-21 days, I feel the urge to learn more about growing stuff
    water: going to buy filter pills. I am saving glass/plastic bottles already, to fill when necessary. I am going to stock 3 times as many.
    emergency plan, getting some essentials- they are overdate or maybe not working properly, also to discuss this with my partner. I have been wanting to do ehbo for years, gonna do it. Your simple tip of putting the passports together, and to have each others passwords- we need this in order.
    energy: was a bit of a downer hearing that my solar panels will not work when shit hits the van! hahaha. so the battery needs to come earlier.
    Barter: getting a plan. I do have some apartments, do you count that as well (i provide shelter)?
    I am very serious about these things- this was an inspiration.

    Maybe an indirect insight I had this morning in the bathroom. I would really love to change/ extend the house- the bathroom is 90s chique, lets say. But this morning looking at it I thought- a new bathroom is not gonna save my ass. So it put some of my desires at bay.

    I shared the list, mindset and topics with my buddies.

  2. Thanks Nisandeh, this was a good awakening call.
    Not totally new, a welcome reminder and an interesting point of view.

    Insights.
    It’s basically back to how it was when I was born. So I scored quite a few points AND there are things to improve ( a lot)
    Contact with neighbours is important in a little community. So that’s in the picture.
    The evening encourages me to go on on this path.

    On my age I don’t have to take a shower every day. I wash on a sink with cold water. I did let go of the cold shower and want to pick that up again.
    We collect water already.

    Have to learn a new skill. Want to learn something that might still be needed in my neighbourhood. So than we can trade.
    In a way I do this already with my neighbours vegetables for service.

    And… what to do when there is no more money?

    In your perspective, is ground as good as gold?

    I’m convinced to go of grit with water, electricity and gas. Do it step by step.

    Thanks for the 12 steps to focus on. It’s also kind of fun.
    The idea of a place in Scandinavia is very attractive. (As part of a survival plan

  3. My biggest insights:

    - Have to work on a plan to become less independent from money in banks.....
    - Will work on a plan to buy some farmerlike real estate plus land with some good friends in another country like Norway or Sweden (climatwise and economically a good idea). We were already talking about the subject this summer!
    - Have to work on a plan what if there is no electricity for some time (solar battery system).
    - have to check on our emergency planning, do we have everything ready? A house of a friend just burned down, that a small example of a crisis...

    At some point in the workshop you started to sound like a caveman on his vulcany island.
    Overall it was very generous of you to share your insights on the 12 area s. They were very valuable for creating a kind of personal sustainable future with my family and friends. Thank you!

  4. You're banging my head on this for quite some time - and I like that I see that I did change a lot even though I didn't believe a thing of what you said in the beginning:D

    So that was my first insight- I'm doing quite well. There are two things that I want to improve. One of them is water- it's on my list for a while to find a filter thing and I should buy it finally. Ordered one yesterday.

    Next one is the emergency plan- especially together with my kids. Crucial- and I was too lazy to think about it. Should work on it.

    Thanks a million, it was great to have the overview again...

  5. I've been thinking about this subject and I loved getting some more perspective on it. Also, it's not something to worry about but to accept and hopefully welcome it with a plan in place.

    The part of the stadium filling up really gave me insight into how quickly things can go. It's fun if it's your business growth but less fun on the subjects you put out. I know now we have about '5 minutes' left. We see things happening, a lot of different things. What '5 minutes' comes first we don't know and we don't know how quick tho's '5 minutes' will be, but they are coming.

    I tried to talk about this with my wife... she doesn't see anything. Not the first drop, not a pool, not even anything getting close. Makes it a bit harder to deal with. I can, and will, teach my kids about it. Love the idea to camp in the house without electricity.

    Also, I'm not sure with skills really will help me out if shit hits the fan... As a martial artist I can't fight guns and sport won't be something to barter. I need to learn other skills as well. Wanted to do that for some time but never had a clear purpose. Now I going to look for some fun things that are useful in 'apocalyptic' situations.

    For the first time in the last years, I finally don't see the need to complain about the government. Even if the best minds would come together in the Netherlands, they won't make it in time for a lot of 'problems'. Probably not even if the whole world would come together... Earth will survive and people with a plan hopefully will too.

    Changing long hot showers for shorter cold showers... Oh, this will be a fight with myself 😀

    Last but not least, as soon as I have money I can miss, I'll change that into gold.

  6. Thanks a lot Nisandeh for sharing your insight in such an enthousiastic way. I enjoyed it, and time flies when listening to you.
    Insights: small steps can already make a change. I plan some concrete actions as well:
    Visit the eco-farm in my neighbourhood regularly instead of now and then.
    Reach out to my neighbours in our flat to brainstorm about an emergency plan.
    Reconsider our food and drink pattern.

    A few remarks to clarify:
    Exponential growth never will end in a vertical graph. It depends on the units at the x-axis that makes it looks ike that, but it will have a real (high) value for any value on the x-axis.
    My final remark is on the wealth preservation. I think that you best can spread your savings in gold, money on different banks, your house, and obligations or shares in the stock-exchange.
    I am looking forward to insights and remarks of others.

  7. What I liked is how enthusiastic you told about your insights and a subject that clearly has your heart. I recognized a lot, because I basically share the same views. What I also liked is that it was no doom story. And I wholeheartedly agree. Ofcourse, what is happening now in the world is awful. It feels as if we are ready to embark on the ark and all around us rain is starting to fall and not stopping. And the ark is your preparation. I do not believe the world will end as the pessimists tell us. But I do believe that the world as we know it, will end. Has to end, because we cannot go on in the way we are treating the world, the environment, animals, eachother. It gives us an opportunity to learn (from past mistakes) and I hope, once we are through the transition, history (for once) will not repeat itself.

    1. Hi Marielle,
      I enjoyed your comment. And I agree wïth almost everything. Only I doubt that history never repeats. I think that it is already repeating itself. Certain kinds of animals (like human beings and dino's) are growing too much and too fast and nature will react to restore the balance. At least that is my point of view.

      1. Hi Tineke,

        Thank you for your comment. What I mean, saying hopefully history does not repeat itself, is that I hope we will have learnt from our mistakes. Like the unnecessary wars, the way we treat our environment, the way we put 'ourselves' first, the way the riches in the world are not fairly divided, and so on. But of course that is Utopia, because we are human and so we will make mistakes and history will repeat itself. But one can always hope...
