Losing more than $20,000 in a few weeks but not giving a toss

I’m heavily invested in stocks. It’s like 80% of what I own, maybe more, and in the past few weeks their value has gone down by actually more than the number in the title in real terms. And you know what? It doesn’t bother me in the slightest! (Of course Covid 19 bothers me, that bothers me a lot, and I hope we can get over this very soon with minimal harm done). The reason being, in investor’s terms I’m still young, so this is a chance to take advantage of stocks while they’re on sale. In 2016 I didn’t do that, and I regret it to this day.

The stock market flunking like it has is an excellent lesson in patience!

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.
