Today’s episode is the second in the True Self Series. The series is about building a heart-centered business – one that feels true to you.

There’s a well-known story called The Tale Of The Two Wolves Inside You. It goes like this:

  • One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
  • “My dear one, the battle between two ‘wolves’ is 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 moment and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
  • The old Cherokee replied, “The one you feed.”

In this episode, I explore the difference between the true and false self. Recognizing this difference allows you to choose which wolf you want to feed.

Do you want to create a business from joy and peace or from envy and ego?

What you’ll learn on today’s episode:

  • Why making business decisions from your ego creates shame and dissatisfaction.
  • The differences between the false self and true self.
  • How the true self will help you find more joy and peace in your business.
