Only those plants which face storms become strong. Those that never faced any storm while growing will fall in the first storm they encounter on growing up. The same is true of people: if we never encounter difficulties while young, we have no tools for dealing with the inevitable storms that adult life brings. But the good news is that these problems do not come alone; a surprise âgiftâ comes along with every trouble. Whenever a problem appears into your life, remember to ask yourself, ââWhat is the gift for me in this problem?ââ Develop an eye to notice gifts disguised within problems. This book gives you the perspective you need to discover these hidden gifts, an outlook that will allow you to see the whole truth. Once you develop this outlook, the solutions to problems become easy. Second, remind yourself that the solution to the problem is hidden inside the problem itself. You must be alert to find it. Rather than trying to âsolveâ your problem, try âdissolvingâ it. When trouble presents itself, simply witness the problem being dissolved. If you feel âstuck in the mudâ with your problems, learn to become a lotus flower. The lotus is a beautiful flower that blossoms in mud, yet remains clean. If you find the problem to be your teacher, you will attain highest development possible.
