Transcript of "Pain With No Gain1[1] Entrega Final"

  1. 1. Pain with no gain<br />Nieves Barreda <br />Maria Gabriela Rivas<br />Omar Molina<br />Patricia Diquez<br />
  2. 2. Origins of the phrase<br />“Pain with no gain” is an adaptation of the phrase “No pain, No gain”, and according to some opinions, it means:<br />That quote originated about 10 years ago from the website Despair.org. It featured anti-motivational posters that looked like the ones you hang in the office. This one particular poster showed a boxer being punched in the face with the word &quot;Agony&quot; below it. At the very bottom it read &quot;Not all pain is gain&quot;. <br />&quot;No pain no gain&quot; suggesting that pain=gain. &quot;Not all pain is gain&quot; means pain doesn‘t always result in gain<br />“without pain you get nothing (no pain no gain)though you are working hard, every time it is not sure you may success or fail.. that is why not all pain is gain”<br />“Pain sometimes makes you stronger. but sometimes actually HURTS you.”<br />“Good pain comes from a good work-out by exercising because you&apos;re strengthening your body so the temporary pain is worth it. Pain from being sick or having an accident is pain without gaining anything but suffering.”<br />According to this concept, misuse of work tools, excess of time spent on the work area and bad posture, or a careless attitude towards our health and lifestyle, can result, in Pain without any gain but damaging one’shealth.<br />
