Swimming well isn’t the important part.

The people at the pool get it. The people at home don’t.

Even if your aim is to be the best swimmer in the world, the only way you can do that is by swimming.

Even if your aim is to lose weight by swimming, the only way you can do that is by swimming.

Even if your aim is to simply have fun by swimming, the only way you can do that is by swimming.

Simply thinking about how to do something or analysing it to pieces can never compare to actually doing it. Don’t worry about other people who do it better than you, just do it. That’s the only way you can get better than them anyway.

Swimming well isn’t the important part. Swimming is.

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.
