Put the onus on yourself

Sometimes we look at people doing amazing things and think that it’s precisely because they are who they are that they are able to do it. In a few cases that might be true, but it isn’t to say that we can also give it a go.

The thing is, when we use this as an excuse, we get nowhere. This is a form of the resistance making its presence known, and it needs to be stopped.

Instead of saying ‘it’s only possible because it’s you’, we need to change the conversation to ‘it might also be possible for me, let’s give it a go’.

And then we have to actually try. No point putting the onus on others without actually trying something for ourselves.

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.
