Left with possibilities
When you’re doing something for the first time, it pays to take your time with it. If you try your hardest at new things, you know you’ve given it your best, so if it fails, you know it’s not because you didn’t try. The worst thing you can do is to not try and then fail, because all you’re left with is ‘what if I had tried more’. I’ve half-assed jobs before when I was still a beginner at it, and that was a recipe for disaster. It was so bad I didn’t go back to it for a long time, which stalled my progress dramatically. Try your best at new things, and even go out of your way to make sure you have done your best so that you’re not left with regret, and instead there’s a higher chance you’ll be left with possibilities.
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.
