Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe from the COVID-19 and having a great day. Another great self help book that I loved and it’s from a secret service agent, you know you’re gonna get value when it’s from someone like that.
The book is divided into three parts with Evy talking about different things in each specific part with one being about protection of yourself and those around you, the second being about reading people and understanding lies and the 3rd, last part being about influence that is how to influence the people around you and how to know when you’re the one who’s being influenced and if you’re under the right kind of influence or not. The book is pretty straight forward with each chapter being about one specific skill or trick that you need to know about as Evy demonstrates the skill through her own experience as a secret service agent.
She tells about her own experience which make the book even better to read. She takes us to the 9/11 attack, assignments to protect the President and other important people as well as in interrogation rooms where she talks to everyone from a potential secret service candidate to terrorists. These examples from her own experiences are what makes us understand the book much much better than something with simply the descriptions of what we should and shouldn’t do, I’ll give a few examples of that right now.
My favourite part of the book was about lies, like I said I’m already fascinated with the mind and psychology and since I’m also working on a Wattpad story which is more on the psychotical story, it was a blast to see how to read through lies and what makes other people catch your lies. There’s one example whe during training Evy is supposed to spot the lie between two people talking about a trip to Egypt, both of them were perfect in their stories but she chose the second person as the liar, why ? She explained that the man when describing his experience at the pyramid of Giza said, “The entrance was here and the pillar would be there.” She said that the use of ‘would be’ suggests that he was assuming where the pillar was instead of describing where the pillar actually ‘was.’ This totally blew my mind and I immediately knew this would become my favourite section of the book.
There’s also the part about home safety and personal safety where by just telling the basic stuff Evy explains how we can protect ourselves. Sitting at a restaurant for example, you should sit with your back towards the wall so you don’t have to worry about an attack from behind. Another example is when you go to a place to look for an exit different from the way you came in because in case of an emergency people will most likely rush to the way they came in to get out and you don’t want to get in the rush.
Despite all the badass examples that are given in the book there’s one thing that Evy doesn’t forget to give us and that is the knowledge of when to use the tools she gives in the book and that is to serve. The Bhagavad-gita tells that service the very nature of the soul and for that we need to grow ourselves and our minds so we can serve in our lives. That’s what Evy talks about in the book, service is the most important thing in life.
All these examples and more are what makes Becoming Bulleproof a phenomenal book whether it’s for teenagers like me who just want to know about the experiences of a secret service agent, a businessman who wants to make sure that he influences his clients correctly, someone who works to spot lies that their co workers tell them or a parent who wants to keep their home and children safe. A must read for everyone no matter what part of the world you’re from, Becoming Bulleproof is a book for everyone.
So that is it for this post guys hope you got some value from this. Thank you guys for reading to the end hit me up on Instagram and Twitter with your thoughts and if you have any ideas on what I should write about. Stay safe from the COVID-19. Thank you again and I’ll see you all next week.
