ABSTRACT
This article discusses issues related to retrenchment with reference to the book "We Got Fired!...And It's The Best Thing That Happened To Us," by Harvey Mackay. The most prolific writer on success in the U.S. has written about failure. This book is not a storybook, it is a success-book, it is a lesson-book, and it contains hundreds of wisdom bites from the people who failed and rose, including the author. Mackay says that people must take the negative energy of getting fired and convert it to the positive energy of determination and success. Mackay's new book is not about getting fired, it is about getting fired up.
