Get ahead of the game

The psychology of sports, or any performance for that matter, is one of my favourite things, as it has deep insights into how humans tackle this thing called life.

The best games are the ones that really see-saw with neither team really gaining an advantage right until the very end. There’s so much drama not just on the sports field, but also in the minds of the players trying so hard to make it through, that it makes for great entertainment.

Anything else is boring in comparison. So although drama in real life is somewhat undesired, at least it’s eventful. You just need to find your own way to get ahead of the game.

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.

Tim.
