Becoming Bulletproof Book Description :

Former Secret Service agent and star of Bravo’s Spy Games Evy Poumpouras shares lessons learned from protecting presidents, as well insights and skills from the oldest and most elite security force in the world to help you prepare for stressful situations, instantly read people, influence how you are perceived, and live a more fearless life. Becoming Bulletproof means transforming yourself into a stronger, more confident, and more powerful person. Evy Poumpouras—former Secret Service agent to three presidents and one of only five women to receive the Medal of Valor—demonstrates how we can overcome our everyday fears, have difficult conversations, know who to trust and who might not have our best interests at heart, influence situations, and prepare for the unexpected. When you have become bulletproof, you are your best, most courageous, and most powerful version of you. Poumpouras shows us that ultimately true strength is found in the mind, not the body. Courage involves facing our fears, but it is also about resilience, grit, and having a built-in BS detector and knowing how to use it. In Becoming Bulletproof, Poumpouras demonstrates how to heighten our natural instincts to employ all these qualities and move from fear to fearlessness.

Bulletproof Book Description :

Non-Fiction Fantasy Why do humans use less than one-one millionth of their total mental potential? Is there anything stopping us from using the rest? And if not, how do we use the rest, but most curiously, why do we have so much and use so little? And if our body's cells are constantly being replaced, why do we grow old and die, a contradiction of that restoration process? The answers to these questions are what this book is about. Obsessed with finding the answers, a research scientist spent his entire life digging until he unexpectedly found himself looking into history, including even the Bible, for clues. He then had to subject that book itself, the Bible, to the scientific method of analysis to either validate it or invalidate it as a creditable source. This is not a faith-based work, but includes a clinical scientific analysis to separate the nebulous world of religious views from palpable truth and reality, with a complete disregard for political correctness. The discoveries made here are so utterly amazing that the way it has to be told is in an autobiographical story form following the step-by-step developments of the discovery process. This is a true story, and this brief statement vastly understates the issues at hand.

Bulletproof Monk Book Description :

1943 -- the Year of the Ram. In the Temple of Sublime Truth, high in the Himalayas, a master monk prepares to transfer an ancient scroll to his young protégé. The scroll holds the key to an unspeakable power, one which in the wrong hands could destroy the world. According to prophecy, the young monk will become the steward of the scroll for the next sixty years -- five times the Year of the Ram. But to do so, he must sacrifice everything he has -- including his name. Present day -- the Year of the Ram. It is time to pass the scroll and its secrets on to a new guardian, one chosen by destiny and revealed through the fulfillment of the three Noble Prophecies. But the bulletproof monk has no students. He's far from home, in another world, another time, and an old adversary from one of history's most evil chapters is closing in. Though he is hunted and alone, fate throws the monk together with a very talented but undisciplined -- and unorthodox -- young pickpocket named Kar. Could this be the disciple he's been searching for? Could Kar possibly have the strength and the will to be entrusted with this task? Can a common thief possibly be enlightened? Maybe -- but they may not survive long enough to find out.

The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit Book Description :

When life deals you a particularly difficult blow or a staggering loss, how do you handle it? If you’re like most, you might think Why me?, struggle to find your way, or lash out at those around you. But there are a select few who seem emotionally hardier, who are able to face life’s physical, emotional, and financial hits undeterred and perhaps even forge ahead, empowered in the face of adversity. These people aren’t more deserving or luckier than the rest of us; they simply think differently–they are connected with their steady inner self and find strength where others might see meaninglessness; they make life-affirming choices instead of defeatist ones. In short, they are spiritually bulletproof. They face as many of life’s slings and arrows as the rest of us, but they don’t succumb to hardship or misfortune. And you can be one of them. In The Secrets of the Bulletproof Spirit, renowned peace activist Azim Khamisa and inspirational speaker Jillian Quinn reveal the thirty essential keys to emotional and spiritual resiliency. Based upon their own experiences with heart-wrenching loss, the strategies they present may seem simple, but their advice can open up a whole new way of thinking. Khamisa and Quinn will help you discover • that your thoughts help to create your reality, and that you can use them to take control of your life • the potentially damaging mental routines you’re running on autopilot • the vital connections between your upbringing and your “resiliency quotient” • spiritually affirming thoughts that may help you make more spiritually empowering choices “What lies within you really is more powerful than any hit you may take physically, emotionally, or materially,” the authors write. With their help, readers will find themselves more confident and secure in a volatile and uncertain world. When you learn to identify most strongly with that invincible core–your bulletproof spirit–you tap into the truest source of security

Bulletproof Book Description :

Time for pessimism or optimism? Precarious times will progressively become more perilous as the Day of the Lord draws near. But God assures your safety and security! In light of increased worldwide terrorism, pandemics, and political unrest, believers have no need to live afraid. Psalm 91 directs you to the secret place and assures you of safety in the face of danger, disease, and widespread destruction. Bulletproof outlines the benefits and promises of Psalm 91 and teaches you how to access them for your family, your community and your future. Paul the apostle predicted society becoming more crude, cruel, profane, savage, slanderous, cynical, rebellious, money-hungry, self-absorbed, and pregnant with lust before Christ’s appearance. Yet as stewards of a fallen planet, we are not left without hope. Psalm 91 is a timeless anchor of assurance for the righteous. Bulletproof unearths the secrets to securing the protection and favor of God that promises deliverance from disease, famine, terrorism, and war. This is your moment in history. You are called to thrive, survive, and live to revive others. Let this promise of being Bulletproof become your prophetic pledge—may it catapult you into great exploits.

Bulletproof Book Description :

“Poignant, and scary” - Norman Bates, editor. “It made me cry, it made me laugh. I couldn’t put it down.” – Jackie Arnold, editor. “Baby! What BABY?!” – Marisha Hall, the author’s wife - overheard as she proofread one of the chapters. “I see you tomorrow Beeelle, you Number One Beeelle! You bulletproof GI! Beeelle” – Lum, hooch-maid, Quang Tri Combat Base, Vietnam, 1970. “You boom-boom, GI? . . . . Or, maybe you ‘Funny-Boy’?” – The Pimp, pimp age six, DaNang, Vietnam, 1971. The writing started as a simple answer to a cousin’s emailed question about the war. It was sort of like someone had distracted the little Dutch boy and caused him to pull his finger from the hole in the dike thus letting the flood waters flow. That was the story of Lum, the first chapter written. Then, much later, after I had called the book finished the first time, I awoke in the middle of the night one time and realized that I had finished the whole darned book without having written the first chapter yet. I think you can read it in most any order you want, if you are somewhat familiar with the jargon. Each chapter pretty much stands on its own.
