Many business women make the mistake of thinking that they have to abandon their feminine side and embrace all things masculine in order to get ahead in business. The truth is that no matter what job or industry you are working in, you will never be truly successful and happy in your career if you are pretending to be something that you’re not.
You might think the role of hard-headed businessman is the only way to succeed in top companies, but most businesses have more than enough of this type. Their masculine energy rides roughshod over anyone who doesn’t meet their exacting, and often unrealistically high standards. It also silences any disagreement or any creative thinking that might come into conflict with their vision of how things “should” be done.
Feminine energy is a lot less action oriented. It is softer, more creative and flexible. Feminine energy goes with the flow. It doesn’t try to redirect the river.
The Idea of Graceful Flow
The idea of flow is that everything should come to us naturally, without us chasing all over the place after things we think will make us happier, more successful, more… whatever. Flow is about accepting what is good in life without wanting more or pushing it away because we think we don’t deserve it. It is also about attracting the good things in life through correct action. If we work hard on a project, for example, good results will follow.
