At the end of the movie Matrix, Neo says – “I’m going to tell these people what you don’t want them to see. I’m going to show them a world where anything is possible.” Adam Brown is the real-life Neo and he shows us that anything is indeed possible. This is an inspirational story about an ordinary person and his transformation from being a struggling drug addict to one of the most badass navy seals.
Adam Brown was able to accomplish it due to the sheer determination to be the best version of himself. The journey and the training required to become a navy seal is so brutal that people have died during the training. Not only did Adam Become a navy seal, he then went on to become a part of the most speacialized groups within navy seal – an alpha amongst alphas. I have no doubt that he would not have been able to do this without the support of his wife and wider family. Additionally, he also gained a lot of support and strength from his faith in Christianity. Although I’m an atheist myself but this extraordinary story underscores the power of faith.
Adam Brown most definitely was tough and had extraordinary tolerance for pain. But at the same time, he was a loving husband, father, son and brother. But even on his deployment to Afghanistan, his behavior towards the children there was full of love and compassion. This is one of the very few books which brought tears to my eyes multiple times.
