Which Wolf Are You Feeding Today?

Which Wolf Are You Feeding Today?

This inspirational tale is credited to traditional Cherokee tribal folklore.

A positive approach to life is not something you have – it is something you do.


The story goes like this:


One evening around the fire, an old Cherokee Indian Chief was telling his grandson about a common battle that goes on inside every person.

“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 you feed.”


So which wolf are you feeding today?
