That wasn’t so hard, was it?

Even at the age of 31, I’m amazed how often I say these words to myself. Isn’t it amazing that after all this time, you still find a way to talk yourself out of the littlest things that when put together, become the biggest things?

Being able to get past these seemingly little tasks must make you feel like a million dollars. It helps to know that it’s the resistance that’s talking you out of this stuff, not you personally, and that the resistance, however tough, can be ignored successfully.

Set a calendar date and time or some sort of deadline. Always. Force yourself to do these things because sometimes, there simply is no other way. And remind yourself, by the time you’re done, you’ll probably say to yourself ‘that wasn’t so hard, was it?’

What seemingly little tasks are you forgoing at the current moment?

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.
