Feed the Right Wolf

There is an old story about a Native American chief who was training his grandson to be a warrior. He told the young man, "In every person there are two wolves constantly at war. There is a bad wolf that is full of jealousy, envy, deception, hatred, and strife. There is also a good wolf which is full of integrity, compassion, trustworthiness, honor, and peace. These two wolves constantly fight for the person's soul and destiny."

The grandson asked, "But which wolf finally wins?"

The wise chief replied, "The one that you feed."

The old grandfather had his finger on a nerve, didn't he? If you want to be a good person, you must practice being honest, caring, trustworthy, forgiving, and kind. Feed the right wolf.
