Pain Is Temporary, Quitting Lasts Forever (Only the Pain of Quitting Lasts Forever)*

Hi everyone

I could not help but share this inspirational post by Al from

You are indeed your own superhero, you know yourself more than anyone. You know what you like and dislike. You can take away your pain. You can set your mind free. You can choose your path and you can achieve greatness by believing in yourself. If you give up – What’s left? -Down. To give down back, you have to take back up (control).

Stay positive

A Mixed Bag

* Amended at the suggestion of John Robinson

Pain hurts. It can get to the stage where we want to throw the towel in and say “That’s it! I have had enough! I can’t do this anymore!” I know, I have done it. I have said it. I have given up. Then I saw a specialist who told me something that turned me around.

When you are in pain, whether physical, mental or emotional, then everything you do hurts. You don’t want to walk, because it hurts. You don’t want to speak to people, it hurts, you don’t want to think because it hurts. You can get through it though. After my back injury, I gave up. I was broken. I could not walk properly so I was no longer a proper man. I couldn’t play with my kids, I couldn’t do anything. I was in pain in every sense…

About Quirky Books

Published Author of BREAK THROUGH THE BARRIERS OF REDUNDANCY TO GET BACK INTO WORK - AN A-Z 'HOW TO' GUIDE and How To Get Started With Twitter For Absolute Beginners, A Step-By-Step Guide and Asexual Perspectives 47 Asexual Stories: Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Asexual Diversity. In a nutshell, my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book is a complete A-Z system for getting back into work, and a comprehensive guide about how you can recover from the devastating effects of redundancy to live the life of your dreams. Although this book is predominantly aimed at redundant workers, the content will prove equally useful to jobseekers or anyone looking to change careers for whatever reason. This book provides eighty benefits and covers twenty-six aspects of redundancy. It’s a system because each of the chapters is broken down into ‘5 components of redundancy’. You need to master all components in order to give you the best chance of success at getting back into work. Because this book takes a holistic view of redundancy, one of the key elements to master first of all is wellbeing skills, before progressing through exploring what options are available to you and later, learning the practical job skills. This book is different because it does not just focus on one element of redundancy, but on the many barriers you need to conquer if you are to successfully get back into work, I show you how to deal with the inner trauma and turmoil of being made redundant (health and wellbeing skills), before focusing on the practical elements such as job skills, and deciding on your future path. I have worked in management roles for seven years. Part of my management duties entailed interviewing, recruiting, training and coaching staff and I took part in every aspect of the recruitment process from placing the advert to completing staff inductions and training. I have also experienced the other side of the recruitment process, when I was applying for work and being interviewed for jobs whilst redundant. I have been made redundant twice and each time managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder. It is from experience that I have gained insight into both points of view and I am able to help others. This book is the first Quirky Book that I published and it's under my own imprint of Quirky Books. It's unique and groundbreaking because it combines two genres, an A-Z Guide with a How To book. Each of its A-Z chapters is about an element of redundancy, and within each chapter it explains how to do things related to that element to break though your barriers of redundancy and beat your redundancy blues. That’s what makes it a quirky book. Buy it from Amazon UK: Buy it from Amazon USA: Like on Facebook You can view my quirkybooks writing blog at
