The one you feed

Read this in the book “The One Thing”, by Gary Keller. It was interesting in the context of where my life is presently.

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

He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us. One is Fear. It carries anxiety, concern, uncertainty, hesitancy, indecision and inaction. The other is Faith. It brings calm, conviction, confidence, enthusiasm, decisiveness, excitement and action.”

The grandson thought about it for a moment and then meekly asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee replied, “The one you feed.”
