In Frankly Friday

A good friend told me a story this week about an old Cherokee. It goes like this:

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

My good wolf leads me to:

1. Be curious
2. Give without the need for a returned favor
3. Make decisions out of passion

My bad wolf leads me to:

1. Be anxious
2. Question “what’s in it for me”
3. Make decisions out of insecurity

Which Wolf did you feed this week?
Which one will you try and starve next week?
