An old man 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 – a good wolf and a bad wolf.
One wolf is negative – he is angry, envy, sorrowful, regretful, greedy, arrogant, self-pitiful, guilty and resentful. He tells lies all the time and has false pride.
He continued, “The other is positive – he is encouraging, peaceful, loving, hopeful, sincere, kindness and humble. He is full of empathy, generous and compassionate.
The grandfather explained that “the same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The boy thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old farmer simply replied, “The one you feed the most.”
Positive thinking is just as easy as negative thinking, but worthwhile.
