Independence, resilience, leadership

Independence: able to support yourself. Able to do get things done. Independence with leadership means you aren’t independent entirely, but that you can lead an independent group too.

Resilience: able to deal with the difficult. Able to move on when things are tough, and able to push forward. Resilience without independence isn’t true resilience. Resilience without leadership isn’t useful.

Leadership: able to lead. Able to find the right mission and the right people to do the right job. Leadership with independence is courage. Leadership without resilience is weakness.

Independence, resilience, leadership. Three important traits for getting things done.

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.
