From this year’s Novant Health reads selection, Type R: Transformative Resilience for Thriving in a Turbulent World, one story really stuck out to me. The section is titled “The Power of Positive Emotions” and the story goes like this:
“In a famous Native American story, an old Cherokee tells his grandson that inside all people a battle rages between two wolves. One wolf is negativity: anger, sadness, stress, envy, greed, fear arrogance, guild, shame and hate. The other is positivity: joy, gratitude, hope, compassion, faith and, above all, love. The grandson thinks about this for a moment then asks, ‘Well, which wolf wins?’ The grandfather replies, ‘The one you feed.’”
If you don’t have a copy of the book, please request one from your leader! With the enormous amount of change in the industry and in our own system, the topic is timely for all of us.
