If you find yourself facing a problem in life,and it would be very surprising if you didn't,then can you also see the hidden gift within it?

I believe so. I had the most difficult job of my life once. I got shouted by my CEO for things I did and didn't do...in fact, I got shouted at every single day. I lasted only 8 months coz I thought situations would change. But it didn't. After more and more employees left, I realised it was my time. Then I got a job that gives me 25% more salary and better environment...and now I can help friends find jobs :o) I believe that the trauma I got in my previous job has helped me to appreciate my current more. And of course, I have been to 'hell'...what can be worst than that!!

I think so. It happens to me so many times to know that SOME unpleasant things are blessings in disguise. I was canned from my first job, changed careers and found out that the choice I made when I was backed in a corner is the same thing that will enhance my pay a bit. But not everything has a hidden gift. I think it depends on how you look at things for the most part.

If you are positive about the problem you are facing, you definitely shall see some hidden thing it it. I believe everything happens for a purpose. It is unfortunate that most of us do not see these hidden gifts, as you call them, because we are preoccupied by brooding and sulking over our predicaments.
