Success Depends On Your Ability To Know How And When To Apply Effort
Before you watch the video, I'd like to share with you that this is a super important piece to understand which not many people do.
If you don't understand the principle of balance between Yang and Yin, or Effort and Flow, within your pursuit of greater success, you won't experience the kind of success you're looking for.
It doesn't matter what level of success or “not-success” you're currently at. It doesn't matter if you're just getting started on your journey towards success or you're already “achieving”.
If you don't balance effort (yang energy) with flow (yin energy), at some point either you'll burn out or just plain give up.
These two forces, yang and yin, are the foundation of everything in nature. Every living creature instinctively understands that there is a time to push, and there's a time to flow (or even stop). Just look at the animal kingdom for example, whether it's a bear or lion or ant, there's a primal and instinctive understanding of when to do whatever it takes, and when to be still, wait.
It's only mankind that has been conditioned (or programmed) by modern day culture and lifestyle, to just keep pushing. We have been taught to believe that if we don't “push”, if we don't fully go after what we want or if we don't do “whatever it takes”, then we will never achieve the results we want.
Watch the video as I share this key success factor with greater depth through the metaphor of my freediving experience. Enjoy and leave a comment.
