What we’re good at
We all have times when we question our suitability for doing different things. I believe this is connected to imposter syndrome, a common occurrence where we don’t think we’re good enough to do something, but I want to show a technique I learned yesterday to help find what we’re good at.
What springs to mind when you ask yourself, ‘why can’t other people do this as well as me?’ Or ‘what do I naturally find easy to do that other people don’t?’
If you have an answer to this question, great! Go with it! You’ve found something that you’re good at, perhaps it’s a skill you could develop even more, or something you enjoy.
If not, keep this in the back of your head as you go about your day to day life.
The other thing you can do is to think about the opposite to those questions, and work on them if they’re important in helping you be better today than you were yesterday.
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.
