What You Feed, Grows

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.

“A fight is going on inside me,” the grandfather 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, pride, superiority and ego.”

He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandfather went on, “This 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.”

What you feed grows.

When you feed yourself with knowledge, you grow in knowledge.

When you feed yourself daily exercise, your body grows stronger.

When you feed yourself healthy food, your health improves.

When you feed yourself optimism, you become hopeful about all of life’s possibilities.

When you feed yourself good habits, those habits improve the circumstances of your life.
