The Right Kind of Crazy by Clint Emerson Pdf

Clint Emerson, retired Navy SEAL and author of the bestselling 100 Deadly Skills, presents an explosive, darkly funny, and often twisted account of being part of an elite team of operatives whose mission was to keep America safe by whatever means necessary. Clint Emerson is the only SEAL ever inducted into the International Spy Museum. Operating from the shadows, with an instinct for running towards trouble, his unique skill set made him the perfect hybrid operator. Emerson spent his career on the bleeding edge of intelligence and operations, often specializing in missions that took advantage of subterfuge, improvisation, the best in recon and surveillance tech to combat the changing global battlefield. MacGyvering everyday objects into working spyware was routine, and fellow SEALs referred to his activities simply as “special shit.” His parameters were: find, fix, and finish—and of course, leave no trace. The Right Kind of Crazy is unlike any military memoir you’ve ever read because Emerson is upfront about the fact that what makes you a great soldier and sometimes hero doesn’t always make you the best guy—but it does make for damn good stories.

The Rugged Entrepreneur by Scott Andrew Pdf

Have you ever dreamed about owning your own business? Maybe becoming a market disruptor? Would you know where to start? Do you have a coach, a mentor, or a teacher who can show you how? Well, now you do. If we are lucky, we have been taught to dream since the time we were very young. If we are luckier still, we have also been taught to establish a sturdy foundation for those dreams to stand upon. When building the business you’ve always dreamed of, you must first establish a rock-solid foundation, something I’ve learned from many years of experience as a Rugged Entrepreneur. What is a “Rugged Entrepreneur”? It’s what I call a special breed of entrepreneur. Ruggeds make the leap toward success in a way that separates them from the millions who fall short because they invest the time and effort to develop and hone the specific set of powerful skills you’ll discover in these pages. I’ve identified four elements to becoming a Rugged Entrepreneur. These elements can be developed by anyone and are helpful to every type of entrepreneur. But all four of them are necessary to do the job well. The Four Foundational Elements of being a Rugged Entrepreneur are: A fervent work ethic A humble and healthy pride (what I call “Rugged Pride”) Fortitudo mentis (aka, mental toughness) Faith The Rugged Entrepreneur provides a roadmap to your journey of lasting self-discovery. It’s about identifying and acquiring the skills to achieve sustained success and to build on top of that success. It’s about passionately pursuing a productive business life for yourself and your family using the economic engines accessible to us all. But be warned: do not read this book if you do not want to be challenged.

It Happened Like This by Adrienne Lindholm Pdf

“In the wild, something inside me opens to innovation, inspiration, creativity, and imagination. It’s a good feeling, one that leaves me light and full of energy, free to imagine who I want to be in this life. . . . Yet it’s slippery and ephemeral, and I can never seem to pack it out with me.” —Adrienne Lindholm It Happened Like This is, on the surface, a memoir about what it means to live and love in one of the wildest places on the planet. But the love described is not a simple one; it’s a gritty, sometimes devastating, often blood-pumping kind of feeling played out in the rugged Alaska wilderness. In an authentic and honest voice, writer Adrienne Lindholm recounts her move to Alaska as a young woman eager to begin her career in environmental and wildlife studies. She finds herself initially out of her depth among her peers, many of whom are also “Outsiders,” new to the state, but who seem more experienced, more confident. Eventually she finds her way, immersing herself in the rigors of wilderness adventures and building a community of outdoorsy friends to sustain her. Soon she falls in love with JT and gradually, at times painfully, they build a life together and decide to start a family amidst the wild. Adrienne celebrates the many ways in which Alaska, and her outdoor adventures there, inspired self-discovery, as well as revealing her difficult and intimate journey into motherhood. Her love story encompasses the outline of massive mountains on the horizon, viewed for the first time; a caribou moving through an alder forest; the effort to climb a glaciated peak; and the peace that settles when contemplating a quiet Arctic lake. At times, her love—for JT, but also for nature and life—also feels savage, like when she charges onto a glacier alone, or when she shoots, kills, and skins her first animal. With It Happened Like This, readers take an intimate, gently humorous, and occasionally adrenalin-spiked journey into adulthood, and into the depth and comfort of wilderness.

The Rugged Road to Freedom by Joy Brewster Pdf

As Christians we claim to have found freedom in Jesus Christ. Yet under the surface most Christians would admit that they still struggle with many negative habits-habitual emotional reactions, destructive thoughts, wrong attitudes, addictive behaviors, and deeply rooted relational patterns. Many suffer with a mounting frustration and a sense of failure, wondering if there is truly power to change in the gospel. The Rugged Road to Freedom heralds the need to address these habits as they occur in the moments of the day, illustrating the transformative power of prayer and the need for a conversational relationship with God. In this book, Christian counselor Joy Brewster describes her great difficulty in trying to make changes in her own personal habits, and also in her efforts, as a professional relationship counselor, to enable her clients to change. After searching prayer, she began to develop and practice, both personally and professionally, a "Put Off/Put On" process she saw in many passages of Scripture, developing three steps in each part. This process, she realized, was effective only when she encountered God in very personal, relational prayer in each step. Relating her own experiences, those of her clients, and those of her students, she seeks to convince the reader that this prayer process can bring about true change, mounting freedom, and vastly enriched daily fellowship with God. "I write a lot of these, but few with this much enthusiasm. I have had the privilege for almost eight years to walk alongside Joy in life and work alongside her in ministry. She has been a friend and a mentor, and I have both tasted and seen her wisdom. I have witnessed her take hundreds of people through the process described in Rugged Road-and watched, over and over, genuine transformation take place: the blind see, the deaf hear, and freedom is proclaimed to the captives. I myself have been deeply helped by her. Maybe most convincing of all, Joy's own life is a work of ongoing transformation. She knows that of which she speaks. Now her gift is in your hands." - Mark Buchanan, author of Your God is Too Safe and The Rest of God Joy Brewster is Director of Counseling Ministries at New Life Community Baptist Church in Duncan, British Columbia.

Rugged Road by Theresa Wallach Pdf

London to Cape Town overland by Panther and sidecar, pulling a trailer. No roads, no backup -- just straight across the Sahara through equatorial Africa, and South to the Cape -- in 1935, without even a compass! This is quite simply the most incredible Panther journey ever! Undeterred by nomads, sand drifts, heat, rain, rivers, breakdowns and politics, Theresa Wallach and Florence Blenkiron completed a journey that might well defeat a modern bike. From oasis to oasis arguing with the French Foreign Legion for permission to continue, and winning; fashioning a tow hitch for the trailer when it broke in the desert; rebuilding the entire engine from scratch in Agadez; meeting gorillas, lions and snakes on the road, staying in African villages and meeting an amazing variety of friendly and helpful people. Not to mention having an accident in Tanganyika (Tanzania) with the only car seen on the road for days!

The Rugged Terrain to the American Dream by Charles Addo Pdf

Born and raised in the West African nation of Ghana, David, this eccentric young man travels to America in search of the American Dream, only to discover a complex labyrinth of harsh reality in which he had been caught. A thought-provoking novel that examines the friction from moral and legal perspectives, between bending the rules of a host country in response to the strict demands of personal survival instinct, and the unbending realities of the host country抯 contemporary legal tradition. In a lively recollection, the author articulates David抯 search for a piece of the American Dream with characteristic zest and humor. Culminating in a defiance of great odds into eventual triumph, David rises from the rubbles of extreme homelessness that almost cost him his life, and illustriously comes out unscathed to complete with high academic honors, a Ph.D. in business administration from an American university. A must read novel that inspires with an unusual insight into the resilience of the human spirit under the severest of adversities, reveals human frailties in the indulgence of prurient appetites, while simultaneously exposing the loopholes in the higher educational loan dispensation system.
