Learning how you’re wrong
Learning how you’re wrong is one of the best ways to grow. As Yoda says, failure is the best teacher. But sometimes you aren’t sure you have failed.
By finding out how you are wrong, you find out where you can improve, and therefore where you can grow. This means going out of your way to test your assumptions with conscientious people (not docile people).
The only way to do that, is by putting your ideas and thoughts into the world. Only then can you truly understand whether you are right, or whether you are wrong. Only then can you truly grow.
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.
