Don’t compare yourself to the people who put in ten thousand hours, put in ten thousand hours yourself. It’s useless to compare yourself to anyone since we’re all wired differently and more importantly since we’ve all been through such different experiences. So when you see someone you want to emulate, that’s good, but make sure you emulate them in a way that is unique to you.
They’ve put in their ten thousand hours, let that be a motivator for you to do the exact same. Part of your ten thousand hours could be emulating them, but you have to make sure you put your unique spin on it or else you’ll never achieve anything revolutionary innovative, or game-changing, however you want to put it.
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.
