Cherokee Story of two wolfs inside your mind. How you choose to live your life? Small story with great message.


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

He said, "My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger,  envy, jealousy, doubt, 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, forgiveness, 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.'"



This is one of my favorite stories. It helps me choose one option out of two and how it was going to affect my life in the coming time.  It will help you analyze your emotions, are you giving in due to anger, grid? or hope, curiosity?
