Which Wolf Are You Feeding?

Last Update: October 07, 2021

I once heard a fable about a Navajo woman who told her grandson a story about how we have two wolves that live inside of us, constantly battling one another. It starts with the grandmother sitting her grandson down and explaining to him that "One of the wolves is Jealous, has envy in his soul, is malicious, and has a scarcity mindset. To that wolf, everything in the world is wrong and unpleasant. He believes that people are mostly bad, things are no good, and that the world is a cold place. As you can imagine, nothing good ever happens for that wolf because it is a negative, pessimistic animal, always seeing things a glass-half-empty.

"Then the woman says to the grandson, "But you also have a different, powerful wolf that lives inside of you. The wolf has empathy, love, compassion, positively, and knows it can accomplish anything it puts his heart and soul into. This wolf sees the bright side of everything and constantly sees the glass-half-full. And grandson, this wolf, the powerful wolf, can take you to so many amazing places. 'Then the grandson looks at his grandmother and says, "Well, which wolf wins the battle, grandma? She replies, "The one you Feed, grandson. The one you feed."

I love this story because it is so applicable to all of our lives. We all have the BAD WOLF, or the villain, as I call it, living inside of us, but we also have this HERO just waiting to be released. Here, I'll help you learn how to expose the villain hiding inside you, discover how it got there, and proceed to destroy it. Because in so many cases, once it's gone, you can't even begin to imagine how much more you will be able to accomplish in your professional and personal life.

This is just true in all aspects
of our lives and we have to be
wary what we think, say and
do as they do reflect ourselves
in all ways.

Thank you for sharing, my dear
Sis. You are such an Angel.

I love you.

Blessings.

what an awesome analog Dorothy. yes maybe some of the wolves in their individual are still in a very long deep sleep and it needs to be awakened and could be the tool to guide everyone to keep focus and be persistent in every task they are doing.
