Try it before you buy it

There’s so many things you learn during the process, that you can never learn before you start. It’s weird. It’s like if you have a project in mind you know what you’re going to learn, or you have something in mind that you’d like to learn, but until you actually try it, you realise you had no idea what you were going to learn!

If you have an inkling to do something, my suggestion is to start doing it before you think about it. Take the steps to put things into motion as soon as you feel the urge to do so. Try it before you buy it, so to speak. That way you learn way more than you could ever have imagined.

If you let your thinking get in the way, it often has a negative effect that makes it harder for you to get started, or it makes you get started in a way that is unnecessarily cautious. If you try it before you buy it, your brain doesn’t have the chance to have a negative effect!

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.
