Two Wolves, A Lesson In Life

Nothing new on my book yet, I'll keep you posted when I hear more. Until then, here's a very short story that we can all learn from.


One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside of 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 you feed."

This is a great story. I'll have to share it with my kids. My son loves wolves, a bonus!
