Embrace the setbacks

Setbacks are setbacks if you let them be setbacks. Of course when you’re trying new things, not everything will go smoothly. That’s what I would call a setback, a little hump on the road, or sometimes a big one.

That’s part of the excitement though, you go into new projects knowing that there will be setbacks, and you mentally prepare to deal with them when they arise. When doing new things though, those setbacks are highly unpredictable. This just means that you need to be highly innovative to overcome them.

Don’t fear the setbacks, embrace them. They are your chance for growth, they only lead to growth one way or another.

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.
