The sum of your choices from the past has brought you to the present moment. The sum of your choices in the present moment will influence the eventual outcome of your life. By being aware of your choices, you will have greater control over future. The following parable provides another perspective on the power of self-talk:
An old Cherokee chief 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, self-doubt and ego. The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. 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 chief simply replied, “The one you feed.”
How does this parable apply to your current life circumstances? In what ways does this fight exist within you, and what “wolf” are you currently feeding? How would your life change if you only fed the 2nd wolf? In what ways does the nature of your thoughts positively/negatively impact your choices?
