An old Cherokee was teaching his grandson about life.
'A fight is going on inside me', he said to the boy. 'It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves.
One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good, joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
'The same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too.'
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, ' Which wolf will win?'.
The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.'
Isn't that the truth! All too often, it seems, in this current world too many people default to the "evil" side for whatever reason.
However, if you observe closely...even though it appears there are more "egotists" than not...it is the Slight Edger’s that make a difference. As a Slight Edger you have the ability to influence even more people by being an example of the Good Wolf than any number of Evil Wolves.
You are an example others look to by just being who you are as you live the Slight Edge life. A consistent life of being that Slight Edger will produce more influence on more people over a long period of time than any Evil Wolf will influence in a short period of time.
Showing up consistently, showing up with a plan consistently, showing up with a plan that you are dedicated to working on a consistent daily basis will produce more effect than any short spurt of activity.
Be the Slight Edger! Feed the Good Wolf every minute, every hour of every day and you will soar among the greatest heights!
This is a great lesson for everyone. When you apply the Slight Edge it there are no doubt you will benefit!
