Who are you going to disappoint?

Someone’s always going to be disappointed at your decision. There is no way that we can please everyone. Therefore your choice is, do you disappoint a lot of people a little bit, or a few people a lot?

On the other hand, you could think of it as a positive. Do you please a lot of people a little bit, or a few people a lot?

Who are you going to disappoint is another way to say who are you going to serve. But I wouldn’t dwell on the people who will be disappointed, be aware of their existence, and ignore them as you focus on who you want to serve.

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.
