Once upon a time there was an unusually optimistic boy named Max. Max’s parents were concerned that he was unable to see the world as a normal child, so they decided to take him to a psychiatrist to see if she could convince him to have common sense.

The psychiatrist was getting frustrated with Max’s outright refusal to perceive negativity and was willing to try anything. Christmas was coming up and she made a crazy suggestion to Max’s parents. Instead of gifts this year, he encouraged them to fill the backyard with horse manure. Not knowing what else to do, her parents agreed.

On Christmas morning, they were surprised to see Max, instead of being horrified, scream with joy.

“Why are you so happy, Max?” his parents demanded. “Can’t you see? With all this manure, there must be a pony here somewhere!”

This is an extreme example, to be sure, but I firmly believe and continue to show that:

Everything IS a gift or HAS a gift!

We all love experiences that immediately feel like a gift: the financial windfall, the perfect job offer, the date with the wonderful person. It is the other experiences, the ones that pretend to be something unwanted, the ones that require a change in perception.

What if you really believed that the unwanted situation you are experiencing is actually a gift in disguise?

If you really believed that there was a gift waiting for you, would you start looking for it? Would you make it fun? Would you turn it into a treasure hunt?

Everything changes when you align yourself with this new perspective. You no longer give in to suffering and despair. You are too busy searching and finding treasure!

Instead of responding from a low vibration:

* “Because I?”

* “I never have a break.”

* “Why can I never get what I want?”

Maintain your power by sincerely asking:

* “What is the gift in this situation?”

* “What’s so perfect about this?”

* “What is the wonderful thing that will come of this?”

This is what Buddhists call turning poison into medicine.

The Law of Attraction teaches that we attract what we focus on. If we give in to a “life sucks” mentality, we will experience one unpleasant experience after another.

However, if we choose the mentality of “life is good!” and maintain the will to find the gift in everything, we will live a constant flow of good times.

Life is a treasure hunt, so whatever happens, let’s focus all our resources on finding the treasure. And, like Max, we will be happy and excited knowing that there must be a pony here somewhere.

Everything IS a gift or HAS a gift!
