The Legend of the Two Wolves

Picture 7

This old Cherokee fable has  a deep message. Which wolf will you feed?

THE TWO WOLVES

A CHEROKEE STORY

A young boy came to his Grandfather, filled with anger at

another boy who had done him an injustice.

The old Grandfather said to his grandson, “Let me tell you a

story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that

have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate

wears you down, and hate does not hurt your enemy. Hate is

like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have

struggled with these feelings many times.”

“It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one wolf is good and

does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and

does

not take offence when no offence was intended. He will only

fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. But the

other wolf, is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a

fit of temper.”

“He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot

think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless

anger, because his anger will change nothing. Sometimes it is

hard to live with these two wolves inside me, because both of

the wolves try to dominate my spirit.”

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked,

“Which wolf will win, Grandfather?”

The Grandfather smiled and said, “The one I feed.”

 

Stop Complaining! How to live harmoniously at work ?

Inspired from my French bestseller “J’arrête de râler!”, read an article in English on “Stop Complaining: How to live harmoniously at work?”  in Marie France, Asia edition! Read full article!

“By changing our reflexes, we gradually change our thoughts and feelings,” says Christine Lewicki. To avoid temper tantrums, it is also as important not to suppress your frustration. Be vigilant as to when the pressure rises. Set limits, express your needs to your supervisor, learn how to say no, ask for help…”

I Stop Complaining and {Bitching!} Introduction

This is how my “21 Day Challenge to Stop Complaining {and Bitching}!” started!

This journey gave birth to a French blog and a French Best-selling book ( more than 100 000 copies sold) and today I am committing myself to share the lessons that I have learned along the way with you my English readers on this blog.

Follow the challenge and my journey and please share your own experiences on this blog and keep in touch on Facebook , too!

Say YES to Life!

YES

When we position ourself as a victim and complain about what others or things are making us go through and endure…we are  really rejecting what life has to offer. The quote that follows illustrates and  expands on this idea from Frédéric Lenoir, French author of “Petit traité de vie intérieure” “Little  Inner Life  Treaty “( Plon edition).

“By merely acquiescing to Life, it provides a feeling of gratitude which in itself is a great source of happiness, and allows us to fully embrace the positive and to transform the negative as much as possible. Saying ” yes” is an inner attitude that opens us to life’s motion,  its unpredictability , its unexpected and  surprises.”

Say “YES” to Life!

 

Everything I want to live by is here

The Optimist Creed 

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
