In the Chinese culture, there are two complementary principles of nature, the Yin and the Yang. I see them now very clearly:
|Soft Skills||Hard Skills|
To lead a balanced and effective life, each principle is required, but many people are dominant in one principle or the other.
For those centered in the Yin / Meta-physical principle,
- Everything we see, feel, and experience is a manifestation of our subconscious mind.
- Every problem is solved through intention, vision, thought, and energetic alignment. No action is truly necessary.
- Every problem is a problem of the heart.
- We focus on the “what” and the “how” takes care of itself.
- Fear is the only thing that prevents us from manifesting.
Some of their favorite words are: intention, vision, manifesting, attraction, alignment, integrity, authenticity.
For those centered in the Yang / Physical principle,
- Taking action is the only thing that matters.
- Every problem is solved through taking action. Having a vision is important, but having a plan and taking action on the plan is really what matters.
- Every problem is a problem of the head - not knowing what to do or how to do it.
- We focus on the “how” and on doing the work.
Some of their favorite words are: goals, efficiency, effectiveness, facts, results, and outcomes.
That's a big difference; I find that taking a balanced approach and seeing the principles as being complementary is best.
Are you balanced in most things, or is one dimension dominant in your life?
Suggested Exercise: Whenever you find yourself focused on one dimension, meditate on the value of the other mindset for a while.
