An old Cherokee was 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, compassion and faith."
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."
- Cherokee Proverb
How About You
Which wolf do you feed in your life? Can your employees tell which one is most important to you?
How about the others in your organization who look up to you...watch you...follow your lead? Make sure you feed the right wolf today.
