Finding a balance in body, mind, life, and business will help you refine your goals and accelerate your success. It will lead your journey to improved health, spirit, and well-being. Read the complete article.

If your life is very dramatic, stop what your doing, quite your mind, step back and take a bird's-eye view of your life. Drop any misconceptions you may have as to what you should be doing, and then re-balance your life. As you regain the balance in your life, you will regain control.

Yin and Yang

Yin and yang. Hot and cold. Male and female. The philosophy of yin and yang lies at the heart of Chinese culture. The first references to yin and yang come from the I Ching, the five classic works compiled and edited by Confucius. Taken literally, yin and yang mean the dark side and sunny side of a hill. People commonly think of yin and yang as opposing forces. However, it is really more appropriate to view them as complementary pairs. The Chinese believe problems arise not when the two forces are battling, but when there is an imbalance between them in the environment. Floods, health disorders, business problems, divorce, or even a fire in the kitchen - all can be attributed to disharmony in the forces of yin and yang.

The Tao of Success - Balancing Action and Reflection

Creating success involves creating and a delicate and ongoing balance between two somewhat opposing forces - reflection of where you are now and action of pushing toward where you need to go. This balance between reflection and action is very similar to the balance of Yin and Yang in the Tao philosophy.

Reflecting and acting at the same time is very difficult as our mind can only hold one thought at a time. You need to be focused on either reflection or action at one point and then be able to switch quickly and effortlessly to the other polarity when required. There are also times when you must focus your energy in one of the two polarities to bring balance back. This is an important point to remember when you are considering focus and balance your life.

Balancing Giving and Receiving

Your life can only be in balance when giving and receiving are in balance. Every interpersonal relationship is built on this fact of life. He who always gives acts against this principle just as much as he who only takes. This basic truth is valid without exception everywhere where people deal with people.

The bottom-line is that success is a personal experience, but your results do not life and do not change. Give yourself the gift of reflection, action and balance. You deserve it.
