The wolf

An old Cherokee chief teaching his grandson about life.

''A terrible fight is going on inside me. The same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person too.
It is a fight between two wolves.
The first wolf speaks to me of evil--anger, guilt.shame,envy,resentment,self-pity,dishonesty,self-doubt and ego.
The other wolf speaks to me of good--joy,peace,love,serenity,self-confidence,courage,kindness,humility,generosity,truth,compassion and faith.
Wide-eyed,the young boy thought about this, then asked his grandfather:"But which wolf will win?"
The old chief simply replied,"The one I feed."

My coaching work all boils down to 'The Wolf'- what you put out there you get back. Simple as.
