Emotional Intelligence- In Story Form
An old native story that sounds very much like the development of a higher EQ:
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.”
