9 Encouraging Things to Say to Discouraged Jobseekers

These are quotes from Stephen Hinton’s upcoming book “Stillness in the Storm: Spiritual Lessons Learned From Unemployment”. Fixed Stillness cover

  1. Who you are: what you are able to do and your purpose in life are not diminished because you lost a job.

  2. Your identity, destiny and purpose come from God- not an employer, title, material goods or income.

  3. Your value as a person and a worker does not change when you are laid off. Only the relationship with that particular employer does.

  4. Remember that your abilities, gifts, skills and talents are meant to be given to those in need and there is someone else who needs yours.

  5. When you were created, you were given a unique purpose and destiny. This career setback is part of your walk towards your destiny.

  6. No person or entity can change what God has planned for your life except you.

  7. If a company hired you before another will hire you again. The only question is when.

  8. You will grow stronger and smarter from the lessons you have learned through this experience.

  9. Faith and fear are chosen not given. Your choice between them determines your results in life.

    Uplift the spirit of someone changing careers. We all face times of turbulence. Remind our friends and colleagues that change is a constant, and they are worthwhile. All things pass, even the security of our livelihood. We must create anew.

    Thank you for your positive suggestions.

    These quotes are reassuring. For someone who is the middle of a job loss and have been for the last 5 months, it is nice to be reminded that there is a higher authority then mine. After 40 years on continuous employment, being without a job is a new experience and one that places your faith in one who knows much better than I.

    This is up lifting! Thank you for publishing this! Being unemployed and a cheer leader for others, I appreciate it when I get reconfirmation.

  7. After being laid off 6 times I understand more than most the emotional, financial, spiritual and psychological effects being laid off can have on a person. Thank you for lending your voice to this cause and allowing your pain be a gift to the World.
