Ever wish you just had a bodyguard? You know like the rich celebrities that always walk around with the big gorilla sized entourage? Madonna, Britney Spears (when she was still popular), Justin Timberlake. They all fork out big bucks, $200,000 minimum per year to have personal security service escorts.
If you are the President, Vice President or First Family, you get free 24/7 bodyguards in the form of the Secret Service. Free for them because us taxpayers pick up the bill.
So what about us regular folk without the infinite bankroll?
”This is cerebral work. For me, it’s 80 percent mental and only 20 percent physical. If you’re good at what you do, it’s almost like playing chess. You want to be a few moves ahead of the crowd, the paparazzi. You’re thinking about how many exits there are, where the car is at, how am I going to get my client out of this situation safely.” says Eric Burrows, one of Justin Timberlake’s head of security.
A good dose of situational awareness goes along way. Even if you aren’t dodging the paparazzi. When possible, avoiding potentially dangerous situations or doing simple habit altering things that may just be enough to keep you safer.
Do you walk to your car with your keys already in your hand, or are you spending 2 minutes fumbling through and digging to the bottom of your purse in the darkened parking lot while standing next to your car? Better yet, have your key chain pepper spray already in your hand just in case.
Sometimes the moons are just aligned against you. You aren’t looking for trouble, but sometimes trouble is looking for you.
It has been shown that some criminals may even prefer to attack families that appear distracted and otherwise vulnerable. Many would be attackers thrive on jumping couples, in groups, and aren’t afraid to nail a guy that is obviously out on a date.
Why? Because they know you are already distracted… and even more important, they know you will likely freeze up for fear of letting anyone get hurt who is under your watch. All these creeps need is one or two seconds of this freeze-up time to get the job done. Boom, car-jacked, kidnapping, robbery… or worse.
So pay attention to what is going on around you. Most of the time, you are going to need to be your own bodyguard, or the bodyguard of a loved one or a companion. This is not a simple thing, if you have no idea what you’re doing.
Even people who trust you may be confused by the adrenaline rush caused by a sudden threat. They likely won’t hear or comprehend shouted instructions, and will likely make wrong moves that could get them seriously injured during a confrontation.
The worst thing you can do is turn your back on them and attempt to take care of business. A common tactic among kidnappers is sending one or two guys in to distract you, while a third creep comes up from the behind and snatches the person they want.
She’s gone, and you won’t even realize it until it’s too late and you turn back around.
Gregg Wooldridge is one of the nicest guys around but he is also known as one of the baddest cats walking the planet. He has put together an essential training package every man should take the time to watch, learn and master called Be The Bodyguard. This special DVD training is not hard, but very, very effective. The first 80% is the proper mindset, getting your head together before anything bad happens.
Be The Bodyguard stresses a companion control instruction that will simply change your life. Understanding how to truly and effectively protect yourself or anyone with you will make you a changed man. More confident, more worthy of confidence.
Do not forget, old people and kids can’t run away. Your girlfriend or wife may be stunning in that tight black dress and high heels, but she won’t be able run away, no matter how athletic she is. Or you may end up being with a co-worker or friend who simply doesn’t know anything about self defense or personal protection.
In any of these cases, you alone are the go-to guy. You are the one who must thwart the kidnapping attempt, stop the car-jacking, or remove the threat completely.
When I say completely, I mean entirely. If you catch my drift.
It can be cruel world sometimes. As a man, we are looked upon and required to be prepared to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Attitude is good and Gregg Wooldridge can teach you this proper attitude to have. You will also learn how to keep your awareness level at the right stage of readiness.
Think about it. How would you respond right now if you were being carjacked? What if you or a loved one was being held at knife point?
Can you effectively protect yourself, your spouse, your child or any other loved one from a robber, carjacker, rapist, intruder, kidnapper, terrorist or anyone else with malicious intent?
It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?
