Where am I being naive?

Where am I being naive? If you do any type of consulting work, or anything where people are asking for advice really, this is the question that needs to be answered. If someone’s coming to you for advice, it means that they have either exhausted their own ideas, or they are unsure as to how to proceed. Often this is because we get stuck in our own heads, and we need some different perspective to get us to move forward.

This question provides that perspective.

If we are able to tell people where they are being naive, we are able to show them where there may be some discrepancies in their thinking. We are also able to point out things that they were too blind, or too ashamed, to see for themselves.

Where am I being naive also works on yourself. Try it.

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.
