I could make that kick

How many times have you heard, or said, this during a sports game? Well, if you could make the kick, why don’t you? Do you have what it takes to even make the team?

Often things are much more difficult than simply making a kick. Simply making the kick completely ignores the massive effort and sacrifice needed to get into that situation in the first place.

Which is to say, if you’re in the position to make a kick, not only should you look back on all the effort and sacrifice it took to get there, but you should have practiced the kick enough that you don’t even need to think about it.

Then you can truly make that kick.

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.
