Emotional Intelligence- In Story Form

An old native story that sounds very much like the development of a higher EQ:

Cherokee Wisdom

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.  “My son, the battle is between two wolves.”

“One is evil.  It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

… the other is good.  It 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 wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Remember which wolf you need to feed.
