What impact are you going to make?

It’s not what impact do you want to make, it’s what impact are you going to make. Your existence alone means you’re going to have an impact on the world. It’s your choice what type of impact it’s going to be.

Are going to be passive, a bystander, someone who just watches things happen? Or are you going to be more active in your impact? Have an idea? Put it into action. Only then can it really make an impact.

Sometimes the impact we want to make doesn’t work out. Sometimes conscious effort at making an impact doesn’t work. That’s ok. That’s life. Either way, make sure you’re moving in a positive direction, whether consciously or not. You’re going to make an impact either way.

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.
