Have your own ideas

When you take on someone else’s ideas as your own, you have to be responsible for them if they’re coming through you. That’s why it’s always better to have your own ideas.

When you take action because of someone else’s will, you have to be responsible for the consequences if it’s you who’s taking action. That’s also why it’s always better to have your own ideas.

It’s much easier for us to take on the ideas of others, because at face value, we don’t have to be responsible for them. But we do. The thing is, if your ideas aren’t yours, they’re someone else’s, but you still have to take responsibility for them.

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.
