In spite of… because of…

When life hits you, it hits hard. Sometimes life hits you hard a lot, and it’s hard to keep your head up. Here’s my tip. Use these things as motivation to keep your head up. Change your thinking from ‘I can’t do this because of [life event(s)]’, to ‘I’m doing this in spite of [life events]’. It makes you look better when you succeed, and if you follow this advice you will, and it gives that success just that little bit extra satisfaction too.

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.
