Cherokee Legend
January 08, 2013



This is Joe from Greatest Inspirational Quotes. I hope your 2013 is off to a great start. My year is going well, I wrote and published my first book in the Amazon Kindle store. The hard copy is going through the editing process and will be available soon.

Enjoy the story:

Two Wolves - A Cherokee Legend

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."

"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, and compassion.

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."

When I first heard this story it resonated with me and I could see its wisdom acting out in my life. Circumstances come in waves with highs and lows. We can allow ourselves to be victims of circumstance and get knocked around by these waves or we can learn to sail and navigate smoothly through the roughest of waters.

We are each in charge of our attitudes and our attention. What we focus on we tend to find. This is true whether we are focusing on good things or bad. Make the choice to focus on the good things and you will see and experience more of that good in your life.

Feed YOUR Good Wolf: There are many ways to do this. My favorite is to choose a positive quote and use as inspiration for the day. You can collect 30 of your favorite quotes and set them up so you have a different one each day for a month. After 30 days Your Good Wolf will be well fed ;) Continue with this process to keep filling your life with positive inspiration.

This was part of the inspiration behind my book. I created it as a simple and affordable way to have a year's worth of inspriation organized and at your finger tips. For only $2.99 you can pick up an electronic copy at Amazon. Hard copy's are coming soon. Greatest Inspirational Quotes: 365 days to more Happiness, Success, and Motivation.
