It ain’t over till it’s over

Don’t celebrate your success prematurely, basically.

I’ve been helping with a number of projects in the past few years, some of which were very promising, but ended up just fizzling out. This makes me a bit weary when new similar opportunities come up, but I try to not let my previous experiences influence these new ones too much.

Of course there are red herrings and warnings that should be taken on board, but in some projects literally anything could happen, so it’s best to do your best until you have something concrete to work with.

At least that’s what I’ve learned over the years. Make it real before you get too excited about it.

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.
