Today I wanted to share with you the second in a series of personal development video coaching.
Each video offers a thought for the day about empowering yourself to balance your mindset.
The second in the series is about how we can manage our self beliefs. Subscribe to my channel, Only One Life to get updates of new videos published.
This video presents a Cherokee Indian wisdom story entitled Two Wolves to illustrate the importance of self-compassion and self-worth.
The story tells of a grandfather who 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, compassion, and faith. 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.’
This sums up our need to develop and feed our self-worth by showing self-compassion. Try to make sure that you ‘feed the right wolf’.
