Yin and Yang Principle of Life
(for business success)
ultimate principle of life - Yin and Yang are two natural
energies that are the opposite of one another (opposing yet
complementary). All life is governed by the interplay of Yin
and Yang i.e. day and night, male and female, hot and cold,
positive and negative etc.
in the Yin and Yang symbol, you will see that Yin contains
Yang and Yang contains Yin (within Yin there is bound to be
elements of Yang and Yin within Yang). So to speak, no existence
can ever be 100% perfection and that explains well the saying
life can never be perfect. In business context, you may think
of it as Win and Lose, Profit and Loss and for sure, there
can never be a sure-win business. In business, you win some
and you lose some.
"You win some and you lose some". How would you agree with
let's reverse it - "You lose some and you win some". Ever
look at things this way?
about it. When you make a loss in business, wouldn't you gain
in terms of knowledge and experience? No doubts you lose monetary
but you gain the insight and the chance to identify the problem
to turn things around. When you make a loss, it is obvious
that you did not do well somewhere i.e. planning and budgeting,
product quality control etc. Here, doesn't it call for the
need to re-examine your mistakes for you to be able to turn
losses into profits the next round? Even when your business
is making big money, you need to monitor your business processes
closely to ensure your business growth and development, isn't
it? Or have you not been doing so, simply leaving things to
here, we see that success and failure are all interrelated.
Yin and Yang not only suggest the contradictory of the forces
but signify their forming of a dynamic system (the combination
of Yin and Yang as a complete and greater "whole"). You have
to look at your business holistically. To achieve success
in business, you need to appreciate success and failure as
a whole (celebrate success while embracing also failure).
If there isn't any failure to begin with, what is success
then? And isn't that also what entrepreneurship is about?
You believe in your ideas and you fight for it, you fail and
you learn and you keep on fighting until you succeed?
young entrepreneurs however fail to see this, they only have
eyes for money. They ventured into business all because of
money and they focused too much on money and in the end, they
went out of balance and their business fails.
keep in mind this - Be satisfied with enough and never be
greedy. "Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered", I am sure you
have heard of this idiom?
the way of Yin and Yang, keep your business in harmonized
balance and you see healthy prosperous business growth.
of luck in your endeavor!
We wish you success in your business
