Better preparation, better performance
Practice makes perfect. Or so they say. When you have to perform in front of people, it can be extremely nerve-wracking. There are only so many things you can practice for any performance. When it comes to the real thing, there are so many unpredictabilities, but those are exactly the things you shouldn’t worry about. What you should worry about is properly doing the things you can in advance; focusing on breath, focusing on posture both before and during, trying your best to memorise the lines. But also equally, not getting worked up when things don’t go as planned. That’s what unpredictabilities are, and by definition they can’t be prepared for, so make sure you focus on what you can actually control.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
