What!? A “Self-Help” book on How to Suffer!? You must be kidding. Well YES and NO. YES in that it’s a satirical roast of self-help books that promise everything and tell you it’ll be easy (and it never is). NO in that it turns out that looking at and dealing with suffering is the Gorilla in the room that everyone avoids, to our own undoing. And YES there is some kidding around, as a humorous approach is the best way to sneak up on the mothership of bad times: Suffering. And NO you won’t have to suffer to read it! Following the 10 Easy Steps (just do the opposite and don’t suffer) there is the Suffering Hall of Fame, and then the 6 Slippery Steps to End, or at least change, your suffering state. Chapters include: Buddha Kicks the Habit (of Suffering), The Power of Not-Now, Beyond the Roast – Let’s Get Real and The Pseudo Science of Suffering –in which you learn how to construct and use your very own Sufferometer. It’s a lot for one little book, but then again it is a subject which consumes, directs and shapes so much of what we all do, and/or try not to do, in every day life.

Mark Twain once said, “The two greatest days in your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why.” But what happens when you know the why but can't figure out how to make it happen? It is this journey between the realization of your purpose and its actualization that Randall Worley calls process. Purpose, which answers why, can be realized in moment. However, process, which must answer how, is not actualized as quickly. In other words, “becoming an overnight success takes years.” Purpose has been a hot topic for several years, capturing the attention of those adrift in a culture of apathy and aimlessness. It is certainly a far more palatable subject in today’s culture of self-improvement than is process, because it seems to offer a free carpet ride from here to there. Your destiny, however, is not downloadable. The dream of your future is free, but the journey will demand a price. Yet it is in the sacrifice and effort of process that God will turn your purpose into a world-changing reality.
