Impacting the world

Who are you and how do you want to make an impact on the world in a positive way?

If you can answer this, you’re set. You know your motivation, and you know how you can go about getting it done.

Obviously though, this is easier said than done, and it’s also important to remember that the answers aren’t set in stone and can be temporary. The tough thing is that getting to this point often involves a whole lot of trial and error.

If you don’t know where you’re at, my advice would be to give yourself challenges (as evidenced by a whole lot of recent YouTube videos). The challenge you choose is up to you, but it has to be at least difficult in some way, as overcoming the challenge is how you grow. Seeing how you’ve grown from the challenge then gives you more motivation or insight in how to proceed.

More importantly, through the challenge you may find that you have already found who you are, and then how you can then impact the world in a positive way.

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.
