“Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
~ The Two Wolves – A Cherokee Legend ~
Inspiration and lessons for your leadership journey!
You may recall the story of the two wolves from Chapter 2, Baggage Check. There is a great leadership lesson in that legend for us.
Although it is important to be aware of the "evil wolf" inside of us – of the negative baggage or ANTs we carry; it is more important to feed the good one; to pack and nurture positive, self-enhancing thoughts, beliefs, and feelings in our baggage for the leadership journey.
After setbacks, we tend to over-analyze everything we did and everything ‘they’ did to us that caused the problem, trauma, life-changing event, project failure, sales-loss, or whatever. We end up arrogant, envious, resentful, angry, vengeful, or depressed. That’s the evil wolf. There is a place for self-examination and a thoughtful, objective learning from the past. But most of us aren’t readily equipped to do that alone. We end up feeding the evil wolf.
In my new book, A Travel Guide to Leadership, I present proven steps and ways to feed your good wolf. These powerful and positive tools not only outfit you for your journey, but assist you in sailing along your journey, as well.
Watch this short, inspirational video version of the legend, Two Wolves Inside Me.
