One evening an old Cherokee Indian explained to his grandson about a battle that goes on inside of people.
He told him that the battle is between two wolves that are inside us all.
One is called ‘Evil’ and is full of anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is called ‘Good’ and is full of joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth compassion and faith.
The grandson listened intently and then, after a while, having pondered the story, he asked his grandfather: ‘So which wolf wins in the end?’
The old Cherokee simply replied: ‘The one you decide to feed.’
I love this story because it sums up neatly our ability to manage and influence our emotions.
The crucial question for you to consider is: ‘Which wolf are you feeding today?’
