#015: Which Wolf Are You Feeding?

Today’s blog is short and very easy to understand.

The reason for that is simple…

I don’t want the value of this story to get lost in any sort of way.

It’s about two wolves.

Today we’re talking about how important it is to give power and energy to positive thoughts.

If you put your intentions, energy and thoughts into positivity, your life will work harder to provide you with more positivity.

HERE'S THE STORY

While this is an old tale and one many have heard before, it’s value is and always will be relevant.

It goes...

“One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said "My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

"which wolf wins?..."

The old Cherokee simply replied…

"The one that you feed."

At the end of the day, you give all the power to the thoughts you give attention to.

We all do. That doesn't make it easy but realizing that and then actually acting upon that realization is a great first step to changing your attitude about each day.
