Family versus team

We talk about your place on the team, because that could change, but your place on the family? If you’re part of the family, you’re always part of the family, but teams can be split.

In a family, love comes first.

In a team, goals come first.

In a family, the shared goal is happiness and harmony.

In a team, the shared goal could be anything.

In a family, your place is guaranteed.

In a team, nothing is guaranteed.

In a family, growth is important.

In a team, growth is tantamount.

The distinction between family and team is an important one.

Families are families. Countries are families.

Business teams are teams. Sports teams are teams.

Elements can be shared between both, but never shall the two be confused.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
