Teaching yourself

There are certain skills you can teach yourself if you know how. Languages, building websites, and making videos come to mind, and these all have the same requirement: a hell of a lot of practice.

You should be getting in as much practice as you can. Don’t let yourself talk yourself out of getting in the practice you need to do. Just get out there and do it!

At the beginning stages, don’t think too much about the rewards you will get, focus on having done the practice being your reward. But don’t just keep it to yourself! Make sure what you’re making or practicing is getting out into the world though, feedback from others is tantamount when you’re trying to teach yourself something.

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.
