I have had the pleasure of working with WorkSafe recently, speaking a several of their locations with some incredible speakers.
In my presentation I have covered my personal wellness journey and the importance of choosing to be better, not bitter.
To put this into perspective, I share a Cherokee legend called The Battle of the Wolves.
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.”
Which one are you choosing to feed?
