The Attitude

encouragement, Uncategorized

No matter your station in life, attitude is everything. Good things come to those whose arms and minds are open and positive. This doesn’t mean you won’t have challenges or obstacles…we all do. But the mind, the outlook, the attitude takes you out of the “ditch”  and sustains you. Just read and digest the passage below.  I’ll say it again. Attitude is everything.

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

“One is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, 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.”
